We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Indico search will be reestablished in the next version upgrade of the software: https://getindico.io/roadmap/


This search is only for public events. Restricted events are not available.

As the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment nears construction, the existing neutrino facilities at Fermilab provide opportunities to test and refine methods characterizing high precision neutrino beams. MARGARITA is a water Cherenkov stopped muon detector that features twin photomultiplier tubes and two small, slightly differing detector volumes. The two detector volumes are designed to exploit the difference between the lifetimes of positive and negative muons in matter in order to characterize a neutrino beam. MARGARITA is currently being developed in the Neutrinos at the Main Injector (NuMI) beamline. The NuMI beamline also contains an existing muon monitoring system that has been underutilized. Improved analysis via ROOT and simulation via Geant4 of past, current, and future data from the muon monitors during an array of operating conditions could provide useful insights for any experiment at Fermilab utilizing a precision neutrino beam.
