In March, Fermilab saw the installation of its final Tevatron magnet, the start of MINOS and Tevatron Run II operations, and the groundbreaking for the Main Injector. Read on for more March milestones. March 1, 1972: Accelerator reaches...Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator failed to confirm the Tevatron accelerator’s discovery of a new arrangement of quarks. Continue reading ? The post New tetraquark particle sparks doubts appeared first on PBS NewsHour.
It's a brand-new species—the first particle with four flavors of quarks.
Fermilab’s Tevatron collider officially retired in 2011 after a long and glorious history of scientific discovery. But the data from its final run is still yielding potentially exciting results. Physicists from the DZero collaboration have announced the discovery of a new particle, believed to be part of an exotic family called “tetraquarks.” Read more...
The Tevatron collider—the world’s second most powerful particle accelerator—was shut down in 2011. Now, from beyond the grave, it’s revealing properties of the Higgs boson. Read more...
Scientists working on the world's leading particle collider experiments have joined forces, combined their data and produced the first joint result from Fermilab's Tevatron and CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), past and current holders of the record for most powerful particle collider on Earth.

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."
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...
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
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.
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.
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 [...]
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.
As scientists await the latest results from the LHC, the final data from the Tevatron helps confirm the mass of the Higgs boson.
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
Latest analysis of Tevatron's data leaves large window open for the LHC.
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.
