Scientists complete the top quark puzzle

Researchers on the two main Tevatron experiments, CDF and DZero, have discovered the final predicted way of producing top quarks. Scientists have observed one of the rarest methods of producing the elementary particle -- creating a single top quark through the weak nuclear force, in what is called the "s-channel."

"Most Puzzling Particle in the Universe" --Physicists Discover Way to Create

Top quarks are the heaviest and among the most puzzling elementary particles. They weigh even more than the Higgs boson – as much as an atom of gold – and only two machines have ever produced them: Fermilab’s Tevatron and...

New particle-like structure confirmed at the LHC

Scientists on an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider confirmed this week the existence of a particle-like structure first observed at the LHC’s predecessor, the Tevatron. Members of the CMS collaboration announced on Nov. 14 that...Show More Summary

Fermilab retires iconic Cockcroft-Walton generators

The following article ran in Tuesday's issue of Fermilab Today. Fermilab has had many different accelerators in its four-decade history. From the Linac to the Tevatron to the Main Injector, every one of them has been powered by a Cockcroft-Walton generator. That ends [today], when the generators send out their last beam.

Dark Energy Camera Shows Stars 352 Quintillion Miles Away

One of Fermilab's most prestigious projects since the shutdown of its Tevatron particle collider has been a stunning Dark Energy Camera (DEC), which is now delivering its first images.

Re-Live The Tevatron’s Demise, or Just Hear Some Fermilab Rap from 1992 [Video]

By now the huge Higgs news out of CERN is no longer news. The apparent discovery of the Higgs boson has been rehashed countless times in the three-plus weeks since physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) outside Geneva announced they had found a new particle with a strong resemblance to the long-sought Higgs. What [...]

US researchers tantalizingly close to Higgs boson “evidence”

Researchers at the Tevatron particle accelerator in Illinois say they’ve come about as close as you can get to finding evidence of the Higgs boson particle. The announcement comes amid rumors that researchers at the Large Hadron Collider will make a notable announcement this week. At the moment, the Higgs boson is still hypothetical and [...] No related posts.

Higgs Hunt Heats Up With Final Tevatron Data

As scientists await the latest results from the LHC, the final data from the Tevatron helps confirm the mass of the Higgs boson.

Tevatron collider waves goodbye to the Higgs

As the world waits for news of the Higgs boson from the LHC, the last great US particle smasher has presented its final contribution to the hunt

Higgs week starts with Fermilab updates, strong evidence expected

Latest analysis of Tevatron's data leaves large window open for the LHC.

H-day -2: the warm-up act

Every decent rock concert features a support band whose role to warm you up before the main gig or, alternatively, give you time to buy a beer and chat up a blonde. The support band at the Higgs concert -- the Tevatron from Fermilab, Illinois -- is worth giving an ear to because it offers slightly different qualities than the star of the evening.

Final Word from the Tevatron on the Higgs Hunt

Last September 30, at 3:00 in the afternoon, after a quarter century of operations, the Tevatron collider at Fermilab collided its final proton and antiproton. Since then, physicists from the two big Tevatron experiments CDF and D0 have been analyzing the complete data set, totaling 10 inverse femtobarns, squeezing every last bit of statistical significance [...]

Tevatron scientists announce their final results on the Higgs particle

After more than 10 years of gathering and analyzing data produced by the U.S. Department of Energy's Tevatron collider, scientists from the CDF and DZero collaborations have found their strongest indication to date for the long-sought Higgs particle. Show More Summary

Signs of Higgs grow at Tevatron experiments, yet no discovery; all eyes on July 4 LHC announcement

After more than 10 years of gathering and analyzing data produced by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Tevatron collider, scientists from the CDF and DZero collaborations have found their strongest indication to date for the long-sought Higgs particle.

Hitler Learns the Tevatron Has Been Shut Down

I’m going to hop on a plane to Geneva. Have to see a man about a boson. Here’s something to tide you over. A bit of friendly international-competition humor. [NSFW captions.] “I should have gone into string theory!”
