In Jan, 2021, Fields group students participated in the construction and operation of the EMPHATIC detector at Fermilab. EMPHATIC operates at the Fermilab Test Beam Facilty, where the interactions that happen in intense neutrino beams are recreated in a low-intensity setting where they can be precisely measured. Notre Dame students helped assemble the EMPHATIC silicon strip detectors and time-of-flight detectors before taking taking many shifts where they watched over the EMPHATIC detector during the run. Group members are headed back to Fermilab this summer for EMPHATIC Phase 1-B.
