After more than a year of improvements, Fermilab’s accelerator complex has begun sending neutrinos to experiments at the lab and in Minnesota.
Today, for the first time, Fermilab switched on its newly revamped neutrino beam, soon to be one of the most intense neutrino beams in the world.
Neutrinos are light, neutral particles that can zip through solid rock as if it were empty space. In order to catch enough of these particles to study them, scientists use particle accelerators to create dense beams of neutrinos and aim them at large particle detectors…
