Berkeley Lab's HiRES to provide new views of material changes, chemical reactions.
04.29.16 An innovative program with EMSL and the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute, or DOE JGI, in California, gives scientists a chance to combine the expertise and capabilities from both user facilities.
04.29.16 When the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory shut down permanently in 2014, hundreds of pieces of equipment remained in the building, much of it still scientifically useful and valuable. Since then, many of these items have been re-purposed at its successor, NSLS-II — a DOE Office of Science User Facility — and at other facilities across the Lab site, saving millions of dollars for DOE and the Lab.
04.25.16 In the 1990s, Dean Jens and Doug Fuller were high school students playing on teams from Ankeny High School that were competing to secure coveted spots in the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Science Bowl (NSB) ® competition. Today, they’re professionals, fathers, and devoted alumni whose annual volunteer commitment to the NSB allows them to give back to a competition that helped shape their lives.
