The inaugural cohort of innovators—a total of six projects—has attracted more than $10 million in competitive state and federal grants, with 20 percent of that going to their Berkeley Lab collaborators. These projects have also secured more than $5 million in initial private investment.
Cyclotron Road Researchers Hit Their Stride, Bringing Benefits for Berkeley Lab Scientists Along the Way
Berkeley Lab’s Nuclear Data Group is conducting new experiments to address common data needs in nuclear medicine, nuclear energy and fusion R&D, security, and counterproliferation work.
Five scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Election as a AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.
How do you speak on behalf of a living legend like Berkeley Lab’s Art Rosenfeld, a particle physicist who attained international recognition as the “godfather of energy efficiency?” That was the challenge faced by Ashok Gadgil on September 25 in Taipei City, Taiwan.
About a mile beneath the Earth’s surface in an old gold mine, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have built an observatory to study how rocks crack. The knowledge they gain could ultimately help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate deployment of clean energy technologies.
Edward Joseph Lofgren, a pioneering Berkeley Lab physicist who was a close associate of E.O. Lawrence and worked on the Manhattan Project, died Sept. 6 at age 102.
Elementary school science teaches us that in the sun, dark colors get hot while white stays cool. Now new research from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has found an exception: scientists have determined that certain dark pigments can stay just as cool as white by using fluorescence, the re-emission of absorbed light.
Light-emitting, four-armed nanocrystals could someday form the basis of an early warning system in structural materials by revealing microscopic cracks that portend failure.
To resolve open questions about water transport in plants and how they respond to stress such as drought, science teams from around the world gathered at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley for an intensive round of experiments.
Catherine “Reba” Siero, an accelerator operator at Berkeley Lab, has worked for more than two decades at its 88-Inch Cyclotron and earlier worked in particle-beam-based cancer treatments and biology research at the lab.
