On May 8, 2012, Lab Director Sam Aronson joined American Physical Society (APS) President Barry Barish, APS Editor-in-Chief Gene Sprouse, Brookhaven Town Supervisor Mark Lesko, and other dignitaries at the APS Offices in Ridge, NY for a ceremonial “shovel-in-the-ground” marking the expansion and renovation of the organization's editorial office building. Additional office space is needed as the APS journals’ operation continues to grow, attracting the best work of physics researchers worldwide.

The American Physical Society is a non-profit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy and international activities. APS represents 50,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories and industry in the United States and throughout the world. APS offices are located in Ridge, NY and Washington, DC, with headquarters in College Park, MD.
