Fermilab 2012

The operation of the Tevatron, the world’s second largest particle accelerator, at Fermilab was a coalition of efforts by numerous physics, material scientists, and engineers from diverse backgrounds ranging from particle physics, to polymer science and superconductivity. In our trip to the accelerator, measuring 1 kilometer in diameter, the AVS group had a chance visit many of the sites along its perimeter, while talking the primary actors involved in continuing the legacy left by the discovery of the bottom Omega baryon. Amongst the various sites seen, the group had an opportunity to tour within the DZero detector!
