NSD Theory Group researchers receive DOE funding awards for topical theory collaborations in nuclear physics
Researchers in Berkeley Lab’s Nuclear Theory Group, part of the Nuclear Science Division (NSD), have received DOE funding support for topical theory collaborations in nuclear physics. Theory Group researchers will be involved in all of the five project teams chosen to receive awards as part of this program.
Agnieszka Sorensen receives 2023 APS Dissertation Award in Nuclear Physics
Agnieszka Sorensen, who carried out a substantial amount of her research at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) under the supervision of NSD’s Volker Koch, has received the American Physical Society’s 2023 Dissertation Award in Nuclear Physics for her work using an innovative approach to study the speed of sound in dense nuclear matter.
Nuclear Science Division’s New Division Deputy, Science
Dr. Reynold (Ren) Cooper, Staff Scientist and Deputy Program Head of the Applied Nuclear Physics Program, announced as new Division Deputy of Science for the Nuclear Science Division
Former Berkeley Lab Scientist John Clauser Among Three Awarded the 2022 Nobel for Physics for Work on Quantum Mechanics
Clauser’s work with NSD’s Stuart Freedman in the early 1970s helped lay the groundwork for conventional quantum mechanics. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics to Alain Aspect, John Clauser, and Anton Zeilinger “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science.” Read […]
