Fermilab presents: March Magnets
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab)

Missing March Madness? Let Fermilab fill a small part of the void created in these times of social distancing and shelter-in-place. Participate in Fermilab’s sendup of the NCAA tournament: March Magnets. Learn about eight different types of magnets used in particle physics, each with an example from a project or experiment in which Fermilab is a player. Then head over to the Fermilab Twitter feed on March 30 to participate in our March Magnets playoffs.

Berkeley Lab Cosmologists Are Top Contenders in Machine Learning Challenge
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

In a machine learning challenge dubbed the 2020 Large Hadron Collider Olympics, a team of cosmologists from Berkeley Lab developed a code that best identified a mock signal hidden in simulated particle-collision data.

The power of attraction: magnets in particle accelerators
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab)

Accelerator magnets — how do they work? Depending on the number of poles a magnet has, it bends, shapes or shores up the stability of particle beams as they shoot at velocities close to the speed of light. Experts design magnets so they can wield the beam in just the right way to yield the physics they're after. Here's your primer on particle accelerator magnets.

Three national laboratories achieve record magnetic field for accelerator focusing magnet
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab)

Fermilab, Brookhaven National Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have achieved a milestone in magnet technology. Earlier this year, their new magnet reached the highest field strength ever recorded for an accelerator focusing magnet. It will also be the first niobium-tin quadrupole magnet to operate in a particle accelerator — in this case, the future High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

An advance in molecular moviemaking reveals the subtle, complex ways a simple molecule can shimmy and fly apart
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

Researchers observed atomic nuclei moving over distances of less than an angstrom in less than a trillionth of a second -- a level of resolution that can only be achieved with an X-ray free-electron laser.

The Axion Solves Three Mysteries of the Universe
University of Michigan

A hypothetical particle called the axion could solve one of physics' great mysteries: the excess of matter over antimatter, or why we're here at all.

They are there and they are gone: ICARUS chases a fourth neutrino
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab)

Scientists have begun filling the ICARUS detector at Fermilab with liquid argon, moving one step closer toward neutrino oscillation measurements and the potential discovery of sterile neutrinos.

Twenty-fifth anniversary of the discovery of the top quark at Fermilab
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab)

Twenty-five years ago, scientists on the CDF and DZero particle physics experiments at Fermilab announced one of history’s biggest breakthroughs in particle physics: the discovery of the long-sought top quark. The two collaborations jointly made the announcement on March 2, 1995, to much fanfare.
