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.
A Berkeley Lab intern and his mentor develop an algorithm that will extract better structures from low-quality crystallography diffraction data
In this video, Molecular Foundry Director Kristin Persson explains nanotechnology at 4 different levels so that anyone – from a kindergartner to a graduate student – can learn about this exciting field.
Berkeley Lab statistician Paul Williams seeks to explain how genetics and external factors interact to shape alcohol consumption, lung function, and weight gain – aspects of health that are on many of our minds during the the coronavirus pandemic and wildfires.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab played a key role in an analysis of data from the world’s largest particle collider that found proof of rare, high-energy particle interactions in which matter was produced from light.
The Large Hadron Collider transforms matter into energy and then back into different forms of matter. But on rare occasions, it can skip the first step and collide pure energy – in the form of electromagnetic waves. Now, scientists have discovered particles of light merging and transforming into W bosons, confirming that at high enough energies, forces that seem separate in our everyday lives are united.
View Berkeley Lab from the sky in this aerial video, which features drone footage taken earlier this year by Thor Swift, lead photographer in Berkeley Lab’s Creative Services office of the Information Technology Division. The video was produced by Marilyn Sargent, a multimedia producer in the Strategic Communications department.
Inspired by the nation’s grappling with issues of race and racial discrimination, UC Berkeley physics major and Berkeley Lab student assistant Ana Lyons turned to art as a way to contribute to the conversation.
The Berkeley Lab-led center will forge the technological solutions needed to harness quantum information science for discoveries that benefit the world. It will also energize the nation’s research community to ensure U.S. leadership in quantum R&D and accelerate the transfer of technologies from the lab to the marketplace.
