The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced an extension of funding totaling $14 million over four years for the Center for Emergent Superconductivity, an Energy Frontier Research Center led by Brookhaven Lab with partners from the University of Illinois and Argonne National Laboratory.
Darío Arena, a physicist in Brookhaven Lab's Photon Sciences Directorate, was awarded tenure for his achievements in the field of spin ordering and dynamics in condensed matter systems and complex magnets, and for his development of related scientific programs at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) and NSLS-II beamlines.
Kenneth Evans-Lutterodt, a physicist in the Photon Sciences Directorate, was awarded tenure for his research and leadership in the field of x-ray physics, particularly in the development of novel x-ray optics and coherence measurements and applications.
Oleg Chubar, a physicist in the Photon Sciences Directorate, was awarded tenure based on his achievements in the field of synchrotron radiation science and technology, particularly in the area of synchrotron source calculations and wave optical simulations.
Scientists seeking ways to engineer the assembly of particles measuring billionths of a meter have achieved a new first—the formation of a single layer of nanoparticles on a liquid surface where the properties of the layer can be easily switched.
Scientists using Brookhaven Lab's National Synchrotron Light Source have deciphered the structure of a protein regulating the level of calcium in cells, providing clues about a key signaling agent that can trigger programmed cell death and potentially leading to new anticancer drug targets.
