Facility Ops

The Facility Operations division supports major operations at the Fermilab Tevatron Complex, U.S. LHC Operations, and operations at other labs as well. The Fermilab Tevatron complex supports both collider and neutrino physics programs. This requires the Tevatron complex to operate in a dual running mode to simultaneously supply beams for collider experiments and for fixed target experiments that use neutrinos from the Neutrinos at the Main Injector (NuMI).  U.S. LHC Operations supports scientists from US universities and national laboratories who participate in the design and construction of the Large Hadron Collider, its startup, and will work in the years ahead on further research and development for upgrades to the LHC. Facility Operations also provides support for the electron accelerator complex at SLAC for transition of the complex to a safe and stable maintenance mode and decommissioning and decontamination activities (D&D).
