The first shipment of powerful magnetic devices for a next-generation laser project arrived at their destination on Wednesday after a nearly 3,000-mile journey. Berkeley Lab is overseeing the development and delivery of these devices, called undulator segments.
Pioneering X-ray experiments at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source (ALS) helped bring to life decades-old theories about exotic states of matter, and the ALS continues to play an important role in this flourishing field of topological matter research.
Berkeley and MIT scientists have demonstrated breakthrough technology capable of generating liters of water out of dry air using the power of the sun. The development is a major step toward a future of personal, off-grid sources of water.
The American Academy of Arts and Sciences announced today the election of 188 fellows, five of whom are scientists at Berkeley Lab. The new Berkeley Lab fellows are Jamie Cate, Christopher Chang, Roger Falcone, Michael Witherell and Katherine Yelick. All hold joint faculty appointments at UC Berkeley.
Cyclotron Road Researchers Hit Their Stride, Bringing Benefits for Berkeley Lab Scientists Along the Way
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.
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.
