Crews working on the largest U.S. experiment designed to directly detect dark matter completed a major milestone last month, and are now turning their sights toward startup after experiencing some delays due to global pandemic precautions.
New U.S. Department of Energy funding totaling $18 million, including $1 million for user support, will be distributed among 10 partner institutions – including Berkeley Lab – and will continue and expand LaserNetUS operations for three years.
To see, in microscopic detail, what makes the diabolical ironclad beetle so uniquely sturdy, researchers used an X-ray imaging technique at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source synchrotron, and other techniques, to explore a protective covering known as the “elytra,” its abdomen, and other parts.
Kevin Lesko, a spokesperson for the LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) dark matter experiment and senior physicist at Berkeley Lab, shares his insights about the mysteries of dark matter, what we know about it, and what we hope to learn about it from LZ, in this Q&A interview at Sanford Lab.
One hundred and four U.S. companies, schools, governments, and institutions are taking their building energy savings to a new level with the Department of Energy’s Smart Energy Analytics Campaign, a four-year initiative funded through the Building Technologies Office and facilitated by Berkeley Lab.
