  • Particle physics research is both international and collaborative, with large national laboratories working together to most efficiently advance science. Joel Butler, Distinguished Scientist at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory is the leader of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the CERN laboratory in Europe. In this video, Joel tells us a bit about what it’s like.
  • Steve Jones de l'Université d'Utah qui était déjà au Cern auparavent parle d"observation of cold nuclear fusion and condensed matter"
  • Steve Chu, director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and recipient of the 1997 Nobel Prize, presents a talk at Frontiers in Laser Cooling, Single-Molecule Biophysics and Energy Science, a scientific symposium in his honor. The symposium was held August 30, 2008 in Berkeley.
  • Argonne researcher Steve Ciatti talks about the emerging technologies in transportation, as well as the current technology being developed at the lab and placed on the market.
  • In this video the DOE Under Secretary for Science, Steve Koonin, opened the 2011 EFRC Summit and Forum with welcoming remarks and an introduction of the keynote address. The 2011 EFRC Summit and Forum brought together the EFRC community and science and policy leaders from universities, national laboratories, industry and government to discuss "Science for our Nation's Energy Future." In August 2009, the Office of Science established 46 Energy Frontier Research Centers. The EFRCs are collaborative research efforts intended to accelerate high-risk, high-reward fundamental research, the scientific basis for transformative energy technologies of the future. These Centers involve universities, nationalmore » laboratories, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit firms, singly or in partnerships, selected by scientific peer review. They are funded at $2 to $5 million per year for a total planned DOE commitment of $777 million over the initial five-year award period, pending Congressional appropriations. These integrated, multi-investigator Centers are conducting fundamental research focusing on one or more of several “grand challenges” and use-inspired “basic research needs” recently identified in major strategic planning efforts by the scientific community. The purpose of the EFRCs is to integrate the talents and expertise of leading scientists in a setting designed to accelerate research that transforms the future of energy and the environment.« less
