New CORC Cable Technology Delivers High Power to US NAVY

Through a grant program that encourages private industry to partner with university scientists, a research team from Florida State University’s Center for Advanced Power Systems and the Colorado-based Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC has demonstrated the first high-temperature superconducting direct current power transmission cable using ACT’s Conductor on Round Core (CORC) cable technology.

ICARUS neutrino detector installed in new Fermilab home

On Tuesday, Aug. 14, ICARUS moved into its new Fermilab home, a recently completed building that houses the large, 20-meter-long neutrino hunter. Filled with 760 tons of liquid argon, it is one of the largest detectors of its kind in the world. With this move, ICARUS now sits in the path of Fermilab’s neutrino beam, a milestone that brings the detector one step closer to taking data.

‘Deep Supercooling’ keeps liquids from freezing at very low temperatures for extended periods

Investigators from the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Engineering in Medicine (MGH-CEM) have developed a simple method to maintain water and water-based solutions in a liquid state at temperatures far below the usual freezing point for greatly extended periods of time—a development that may someday enable safe, extended preservation of blood cells, tissues and organs, along with improved food preservation.

DOE Approval Moves PIP-II Accelerator Upgrade To Perform Baseline Stage at Fermilab

The US Department of Energy formally approved Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (CSA-CSM) to proceed with its design of PIP-II, an accelerator upgrade project that will provide increased beam power to generate an unprecedented stream of neutrinos—subatomic particles that could unlock our understanding of the universe—and enable a broad program of physics research for many years to come.
