In this Q&A, Berkeley Lab physicist Spencer Klein, who has been a part of the IceCube collaboration since 2004, discusses Berkeley Lab’s historic contributions to IceCube, and IceCube’s contributions to science.
An international team of scientists has found the first evidence of a source of high-energy cosmic neutrinos, ghostly subatomic particles that can travel unhindered for billions of light years from the most extreme environments in the universe to Earth.
Competing in a fictitious high-stakes scenario, a group of scientists at Berkeley Lab bested two dozen other teams in a months-long, data-driven scavenger hunt for simulated radioactive materials in a virtual urban environment.
The NOvA particle physics experiment drew heavily upon the computing power at Berkeley Lab’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) in a new analysis that took a deep dive into experimental data about neutrino interactions and found evidence of antineutrino oscillation.
Pick your favorite photos from the Berkeley Lab Physics Photowalk event in May. We will announce the People’s Choice winners in August.
With unprecedented resolution, scientists and engineers are simulating precisely how a large-magnitude earthquake along the Hayward Fault would affect different locations and buildings across the San Francisco Bay Area.
A team of researchers from Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley are developing innovative machine learning tools to pull contextual information from scientific datasets and automatically generate metadata tags for each file. Scientists can then search these files via a web-based search engine for scientific data, called Science Search, that the Berkeley team is building.
A team led by Berkeley Lab researchers has enlisted powerful supercomputers to calculate a quantity, known as the “nucleon axial coupling” or gA, that is central to our understanding of a neutron’s lifetime.
VIDEO: A recap of the Berkeley Lab Physics Photowalk. (Credit: Marilyn Chung/Berkeley Lab) Dozens of photographers visited the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) on Wednesday, May 16 – coinciding with the International Day of Light – to creatively capture scenes of science at Lab facilities including the Advanced Light Source,
The team behind Project Jupyter, an effort pioneered by Fernando Pérez, an assistant professor of statistics at UC Berkeley and staff scientist in the Usable Software Systems Group at Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division, has been honored with an Association of Computing Machinery Software System Award for developing a tool that has had a lasting influence on computing.
