Berkeley Lab’s researchers’ unique capabilities aided international effort to probe fundamental questions in physics
Scientists have reported new clues to solving a cosmic conundrum: How the quark-gluon plasma – nature’s perfect fluid – evolved into the building blocks of matter during the birth of the early universe.
New research on plasma lensing at BELLA helps confirm laser plasma accelerators can be scaled up as BELLA Center pushes toward higher energies
Researchers at Berkeley Lab and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have proposed an experiment that may settle the persistent question: Is gravity truly a quantum force?
The Berkeley Lab Laser Accelerator (BELLA) Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed and tested an innovative optical system to precisely measure and control the position and pointing angle of high-power laser beams with unprecedented accuracy
The site of the former Bevatron, a particle accelerator at Berkeley Lab that operated from 1954 to 1993, has been designated a historic site by the American Physical Society for its exemplary contributions to physics.
Berkeley Lab has passed the halfway mark in the multi-year process of fabricating crucial superconducting cables as part of a project to upgrade the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. This upgrade, now in progress, will greatly increase the facility’s collision rate and its scientific productivity.
Five scientists at Berkeley Lab have been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science to receive funding through the Early Career Research Program (ECRP).
Nathalie Palanque-Delabrouille, a cosmologist and research director at the Institute for Research on the Fundamental Laws of the Universe at the CEA Paris-Saclay research center, has been selected to serve as the next division director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (Berkeley Lab) Physics Division. Her appointment will be effective in late August. The announcement follows an
A five-year quest to map the universe and unravel the mysteries of “dark energy” is beginning officially today, May 17, at Kitt Peak National Observatory near Tucson, Arizona.
