The Instrumentation Department is a team of technicians, engineers and physicists, and part of the Fermilab Accelerator Division.
Our core missions are:
- Design, development and maintenance of beam instruments and diagnostics to characterize and monitor the parameters of particle beams in the Fermilab accelerators.
- Support, maintenance, and improvements of hundreds of beam monitor systems operating in the accelerator complex.
- Advanced beam instrumentation activities and state-of-the-art RD&D initiatives to support future accelerator-based particle physics projects.
- Education and training of students, engineers and scientists in the field of electrical/software engineering, and in the applied physics of beam instruments.
