ASD Seminar Series

The goal of this seminar is to encourage interaction between groups, act as an open forum to share ideas, achievements, and results, promote collaboration, communicate what APS personnel are doing and to educate people. Talks can be projects, tasks, ideas, etc. that are new, unfinished, ongoing as well as fully developed. This seminar is very informal and does not require a fully formatted presentation.

To suggest a speaker or to volunteer, please contact Geoff Waldschmidt

Next Seminar:  Wednesday, February 6, 2019  @ 11:00 am, Conf. Rm. A1100

TITLE:  Accelerators for Neutrinos at Fermilab

SPEAKER:  Paul Derwent, Fermilab

ABSTRACT:  The focus of Fermilab's long term research program is the physics of neutrino oscillations. Currently the laboratory supports both long baseline and short baseline programs, using existing facilities.  A summary of recent performance improvements and current performance will be presented.  Looking towards the future, the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), located at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, will study neutrino oscillations with a baseline of 1300 km.  The physics goals of DUNE require a proton beam with a power of roughly 2.5 MW at 120 GeV, which is about four times the current maximum power.  I will present a view on how the Fermilab accelerator complex will evolve to meet these goals.
