Physics Colloquium

"The New Big Science: the Changing Research Ecology at US Materials Science Facilities"

Presented by Robert Crease, Stony Brook University and, Catherine Westfall, Michigan State University

Tuesday, February 2, 2016, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

"We talk about a phase shift that has taken place over the past few decades at US national labs, in which large-scale materials science accelerators rather than high-energy physics accelerators became marquee projects at most major basic research laboratories in the post-Cold War era, accompanied by important changes in the character and culture of the research ecosystem at these laboratories. We consider some features, periodization, funding, and challenges of this phase shift, known as the "New Big Science."
