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.
