Exploring the Intensity Frontier at Fermilab
- Eric Prebys, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL)
Friday, April 12, 2:00 PM - NSCL/HEP Joint Seminar
NSCL Lecture Hall
For roughly a quarter of a century, Fermilab's Tevatron was the most energetic particle collider in the world. With the successful startup of the LHC, the lab has refocused its planning and effort on a program based on high intensity proton beams, which will be complementary to the energy frontier research at the LHC. This talk will outline the physics motivation for this program, the modifications to the existing accelerator complex to maximize
the intensity in the near term, and longer term plans for "Project X" - a proposed new, dedicated high intensity proton source.
