Ágnes Mócsy, a theoretical physicist and tenured associate professor at Pratt Institute, one of the world’s prestigious art and design universities, hopes to convey the sense of awe she experienced as a grad student working on research at RHIC.
From new insights into the building blocks of matter to advances in understanding batteries, superconductors, and a protein that could help fight cancer, 2014 was a year of stunning successes for the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab and their collaborators have honed a way to probe the quark-gluon plasma, the kind of matter that dominated the universe immediately after the big bang, recreated regularly in particle ion collisions at Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and Europe's Large Hadron Collider.
