Fermilab is America’s premier particle-physics laboratory. Founded in 1967 near Batavia, Illinois, and home to the discoveries of both the bottom and top quarks, Fermilab is now pivoting to focus on neutrino physics, accelerator design and searches for dark matter and dark energy. Already home to a slew of neutrino experiments with accelerator beams, Fermilab’s new flagship project, the DUNE experiment, will allow physicists to probe hitherto uncharted sensitivities in the search for leptonic CP violation.

The FIPs 2020 workshop was structured around portals that may link the Standard Model to a rich dark sector: axions, dark photons, dark scalars and heavy neutral leptons.
A highlight of the conference was the first observation of solar CNO neutrinos by the Borexino collaboration.
Boris Kayser explains how neutrino physicists are now closing in on a crucial piece of evidence on the origin of the matter–antimatter asymmetry observed in the Universe.
Nb3Sn accelerator magnets for the high-luminosity LHC are a springboard to future fundamental exploration, writes Luca Bottura.
The EPS-AG prizes are awarded every three years for outstanding achievements in the accelerator field.
