Listening to You

The Community Advisory Council advises the Laboratory Director on issues that are important to the community. All meetings are open to the public. Learn more about the Council. Do you have an issue you'd like to raise, a question that you'd like to ask? Let us know!

About Us

Brookhaven scientists conduct research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, and in energy technology and national security. The Laboratory is among the five largest high-technology employers on Long Island. More...

Economic Impact

At a time when New York's state economy depends on its capacity for innovation, Brookhaven Lab represents a uniquely valuable resource — both as a major science-based enterprise in its own right, and as a source of the scientific discovery and technological innovation on which growth depends.

    Brookhaven Women In Science Lecture

    "Goldhaber Prize 2017 Announcement & Talk"

    Anna Gura, Stony Brook University

    12 pm, Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Thursday, June 29, 2017, 12:00 pm

    Title of Talk: Local modulation of carrier density in graphene-ferroelectric field effect transistors through flexoelectric switching Anna is a PhD candidate working under the advisement of Dr. Matthew Dawber in the Artificially Layered Ferroelectric Oxides group at Stony Brook University (SBU). Her PhD thesis work focuses on the use of a ferroelectric (FE) material to harness the electric functionalities of graphene (Gr) by engineering Gr-FE Field Effect Transistors. In these devices, the underlying FE superlattice layer is used to control the charge state of the Gr channel. This work deals with various aspects of growth, fabrication and characterization of thin films, superlattices, and nano-scale devices.
