Message from Mike Dunne, Director, Linac Coherent Light Source: Revised COVID safety protocols as California reopens
Across SLAC and the surrounding region, we are continuing to experience significant improvement in COVID-19 conditions. Positive cases are low and immunizations are high. As of June 15, the state of California has officially reopened its economy, removing or relaxing most physical distancing, masking, and capacity restrictions.
Mariam Kiran, a research scientist in the Scientific Networking Division (ESnet) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), has been named a Networking-Networking Women (N2Women) Rising Star in Networking and Communications for 2021.
June 1, 2021: The Society for Science at User Research Facilities (SSURF) hosted a webinar to learn the latest on the ORCID program. Agenda included an overview of ORCID, details about the U.S. Government ORCID Consortium, and examples on how the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory has integrated ORCID into its workflows, policies, and reporting.
May 26, 2021: The Society for Science at User Research Facilities hosted a webinar to learn the latest on Espionage, Intellectual Property Theft, and Technology Transfer issues from Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent Scott McGaunn.
The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is the size of a sports stadium—three football fields could fit inside
NIF is the world’s most precise and reproducible laser system. It precisely guides, amplifies, reflects, and focuses 192 powerful laser beams into a target about the size of a pencil eraser in a few billionths of a second, delivering more than 2 million joules of ultraviolet energy and 500 trillion watts of peak power.
This video highlights the revisions that were made to the Omega Facility and its operational paradigm in order to continue to conduct experiments in the presence of COVID-19 workplace constraints.
Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source plays pivotal role in development of new COVID-19 vaccine now in trials
Clinical trials have begun on a new vaccine candidate that may protect against variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Protein structures determined at the Advanced Photon Source helped to guide the development of this vaccine.
The Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory is working with users to perform research focused on understanding the fundamentals of COVID-19—so we, as the science community, can help stop the pandemic.
