Quantum Diaries

July 22, 2014
When I joined Quantum Diaries, I did so with trepidation: while it was an exciting opportunity, I was worried that all I could write about was the process of writing a thesis and looking for postdoc jobs. I ended up telling the site admin exactly that: I only had time to work on a thesis […]

This article appeared in Fermilab Today on July 21, 2014. A prototype proton CT scanner developed by Fermilab and Northern Illinois University could someday reduce the amount of radiation delivered to healthy tissue in a patient undergoing cancer treatment. The proton CT scanner would better target radiation doses to the cancerous tumors during proton therapy […]

This article appeared in symmetry on July 11, 2014. Two US federal funding agencies announced today which experiments they will support in the next generation of the search for dark matter. The Department of Energy and National Science Foundation will back the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search-SNOLAB, or SuperCDMS; the LUX-Zeplin experiment, or LZ; and […]

La 37ème Conférence internationale de physique des hautes énergies vient de se terminer à Valence, en Espagne. Cette année, pas de grande surprise : aucun nouveau boson, aucun signe de nouvelles particules ou phénomènes révélant la nature de la matière sombre ou l’existence de nouvelles théories comme la supersymétrie. Mais comme toujours, quelques petites anomalies […]
July 14, 2014
The 37th International Conference on High Energy Physics just finished in Valencia, Spain. This year, no big surprises were announced: no new boson, no signs from new particles or clear phenomena revealing the nature of dark matter or new theories such as Supersymmetry. But as always, a few small anomalies were reported. Looking for deviations […]

I didn’t go to ICHEP this year.  In principle I could have, especially given that I have been resident at CERN for the past year, but we’re coming down to the end of our stay here and I didn’t want to squeeze in one more work trip during a week that turned out to be […]

Il y a deux ans, […]
July 11, 2014
Singing happy birthday slightly off-key but in good spirit. This is how several hundred physicists gathered for the 37th International Conference on High Energy Physics in Valencia, Spain closed the day on July 4th. Two years before, the CMS and ATLAS experiments had announced the discovery of the Higgs boson on the eve of the […]
July 9, 2014
Yesterday we had one of our regular Hangouts with CERN, live from ICHEP, at which we took questions from around the Internet and updated everyone on the latest results, live here at the ICEHP 2014 conference. You can see a replay here: I sent it to my wife, like I usually do. (“Look, I’m on […]

Since model building is the essence of science, this quote has a bit of a bite to it. It is from George E. P. Box (1919 – 2013), who was not only an eminent statistician but also an eminently quotable one.  Another quote from him: One important idea is that science is a means whereby […]
July 3, 2014
ICHEP 2014 started today in Valencia, Spain. This is one of particle physics’s biggest conferences, held every two years. The last one, in 2012, coincided with the discovery of the Higgs boson. This year, we’re probably going to have more in the way of careful measurements than big new surprises. ATLAS and CMS have already […]

Joe Lykken is a familiar name not only at Fermilab, where he has worked as a theorist since 1989, but to people across the country who have seen him on PBS or have read his words in Scientific American. His vast experience in researching and communicating particle physics led Director Nigel Lockyer to select Lykken […]

There’s a software tool I use almost every day, for almost any work situation. It’s good for designing event selections, for brainstorming about systematic errors, and for mesmerizing kids at outreach events. It’s good anytime you want to build intuition about the detector. It’s our event viewer. In this post, I explain a bit about […]

This article appeared in Fermilab Today on June 27, 2014. The first images taken by the Dark Energy Survey after it began in August 2013 have revealed a rare, “superluminous” supernova (SLSN) that erupted in a galaxy 7.8 billion light-years away. The stellar explosion, called DES13S2cmm, easily outshines most galaxies in the universe and could […]
June 25, 2014
Fermilab published a version of this press release on June 24, 2014. On Monday, June 23, the next phase of neutrino physics at Fermilab fell (gently) into place. The MicroBooNE detector – a 30-ton, 40-foot-long cylindrical metal tank designed to detect ghostly particles called neutrinos – was carefully transported by truck across the U.S. Department […]
