Collider Detector at Fermilab


Top quark still raising questions

Why are scientists still interested in the heaviest fundamental particle nearly 20 years after its discovery?


Particle detector connects two generations

Work on Fermilab’s CDF detector during the more than two decades of its lifetime has been a family affair.


LHC and Tevatron share first joint result

An international team of scientists from Fermilab’s Tevatron and CERN’s Large Hadron Collider has produced the world’s best value for the mass of the top quark.


Fermilab produces its first potential astronaut

Josh Cassada, accepted into NASA’s exclusive 2013 astronaut candidate class, cut his scientific teeth doing particle physics research at Fermilab.


Nigel Lockyer appointed director of Fermilab

Nigel Lockyer, director of Canada’s TRIUMF laboratory since 2007, will take over for retiring Fermilab Director Pier Oddone.

New particle-like structure confirmed at the LHC

Scientists at the CMS experiment at CERN have spotted an exotic combination of particles previously observed in the CDF experiment at Fermilab.


Particle physics tames big data

As science produces an ever-growing flood of information, researchers in many fields struggle with how to collect, store, manage and distribute “big data.” Perhaps they could learn a th


Scientists, students and guests from around the world gathered at Fermilab last week for a symposium celebrating the laboratory's now-retired accelerator, the Tevatron.
