A team of scientists from the University of North Carolina, the University of Connecticut, and Brookhaven National Laboratory has devised a general method for enabling reversible shifting between programmable shapes in certain polymers.
On Sunday, July 13, tour the National Synchrotron Light Source II, which upon completion will become one of the world’s most advanced light sources—a giant x-ray microscope! Master the synchrotron quiz, and be mesmerized by the “Science Laser Light Spectacular.”
Look inside the storage ring of the National Synchrotron Light Source II, under construction at Brookhaven Lab. Exactly 843 magnets now encircle the ring. Their job will be to steer, stabilize, and store electrons racing around at near light speed.
