Tevatron signs off

Fermilab’s famous Tevatron particle accelerator will be shut down on 30 September after 26 years in operation, but scientists will continue to analyse the data it provided for years to come. Fermilab explained that the shutdown will also allow it to use the buildings that were used to assemble and operate the Collider Detector (CDF) and DZero collider experiments Source to start new projects and research programmes.

The two detector teams that use Tevatron, CDF and DZero will continue to analyse data and produce scientific papers “at the same record-setting rate” for the next couple of years and then at a slower rate for another two years, Fermilab said.
