A new, compact system has been successfully demonstrated at the Berkeley Lab Laser Accelerator (BELLA) Center to provide simultaneous high-resolution measurements of multiple electron-beam properties.
U.S. Department of Energy awards announced in July will advance Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) R&D to develop a more effective and compact particle-beam system for cancer treatment, improve particle-beam performance using artificial intelligence, and develop a high-power, rapid-fire laser system for both tabletop and large-scale applications.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory has named Jim Yeck as Project Director for the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), a one-of-a-kind nuclear physics research facility to be built at the Laboratory over the next decade in partnership with scientists from DOE’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab).
An approach scientists explored for accelerating particles in an Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) could form the foundation of an energy-saving design for a future high-energy electron-positron collider.
An upgrade of the Advanced Light Source, a synchrotron at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), has passed an important milestone that will help to maintain the ALS’ world-leading capabilities. On Dec. 23 the DOE granted approval for a key funding step that will allow the project to start construction on a new inner electron storage ring known as an accumulator ring.
