LBL CURRENTS -- March 25, 1994

Shank explains role of national labs at first advisory task force meeting

By Lynn Yarris, [email protected]

"The national labs should be doing research in a problem-rich environment where the needs of the nation define the problems," said LBL Director Charles Shank in a talk earlier this month before Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary's Advisory Task Force on Alternative Futures of the DOE National Laboratories.

The task force, which is chaired by Robert Galvin of the Motorola Corporation, was announced by the Secretary at a press conference in February (see Currents, Feb.4). Its charge is to "take a broad look at what all the national labs produce and at what cost."

Speaking at the task force's first meeting, which was held March 7 at Argonne National Laboratory, Shank presented an overview of the national laboratory system. This system, Shank told the task force, now consists of 10 multiprogram laboratories with annual operating budgets totaling $6.2 billion. The labs currently employ some 19,000 scientists and engineers, and each year host more than 200,000 guests, visitors, and students.

"The laboratories were founded to meet national needs," Shank said. "We are here to execute national policies, solve problems of scale, provide multi-disciplinary research teams and forefront national user facilities, and serve as a bridge between universities and industrial laboratories."

In laying out the scientific core competencies of the national laboratory system and describing the benefits it provides to the nation, Shank cited a lengthy list that ranged from understanding global climate changes to ensuring national security. He forcefully made the point that the nation has seen enormous returns from relatively "tiny investments" and pointed out the potential for even greater benefits in the future.

For example, Shank noted that the projected costs for cleaning up our environment of radioactive and other toxic wastes could reach trillions of dollars--"enough to exhaust the nation's budget," he said. However, environmental science and remediation technologies, two of the core competencies of the national labs, offer the possibility of substantially reducing these costs.

For the future, Shank maintained that if the focus of the national laboratories is shifted from the traditional basic-applied research to a problem-solving approach, the skills of the labs could be used to confront complex technological problems early on. Shank also envisioned an expansion of the national laboratory system's partnerships with DOE to include other departments and agencies in the Federal government, speaking of a day when the powerful research capabilities of the national laboratories "could be integrated with a national technology policy."

The advisory task force is expected to present Secretary O'Leary with its assessment and recommendations in February 1995. Recommendations could include the redirection, conversion, or closure of elements within the national laboratory system.

UC names LBL's Judson King vice provost for research

By Mike Wooldridge, [email protected]

C. Judson King, a chemical engineer in the Energy and Environment Division, has been appointed the University of California's vice provost for research. The appointment was announced Friday, March 18, at a meeting of the UC Board of Regents in San Francisco.

As vice provost, King will work with the three UC-managed DOE laboratories to increase collaborative research with the UC campuses and to help in defense-conversion activities.

"One of my goals is to stimulate more systematic and active programmatic interaction among the campuses and the labs," King said of his appointment.

"The second goal--and this is very exciting to me--is in recognition of the change affecting both the Livermore and Los Alamos labs especially. I hope to encourage the use of the very capable and flexible people at those labs in addressing major national problems and concerns in areas such as global warming, the clean car initiative, and environmental clean up and remediation. There is certainly no lack of opportunity for us."

King was appointed by Walter Massey, UC provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. He will be Massey's deputy.

"Since I joined the University I have been aware of Jud King's superior abilities as a scientist and research administrator," Massey said. "Recently, I have witnessed his excellent skills first-hand as he has served admirably on UC President Peltason's Council on the National Laboratories. I am extremely pleased that he has agreed to join the Office of the President full time."

The vice provost position grew from a University consensus on the need for a senior administrator to coordinate systemwide and multi-campus research and technology transfer matters at the state and federal level. The position encompasses and expands on the duties of Calvin C. Moore, UC associate vice president for academic affairs, who has announced his return to a faculty position at UC Berkeley.

For 30 years King has been a senior scientist at LBL, where he plans to continue his research. A professor of chemical engineering at UC Berkeley, he is also the university's provost of professional schools. King joined the Berkeley campus in 1963 as an assistant professor after four years on the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

King earned his master's degree and doctorate in chemical engineering from MIT and a bachelor's degree in the same field from Yale University. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and recipient of the Warren K. Lewis Award from the American Institute of Chemical engineers.

Science and Technology lecture series to feature industry leader

Ralph E. Gomory, president of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, will be the next speaker in the LBL lecture series: Science and Technology in a Competitive World. He will speak on "Uncertainty and the Federal Role in Science and Technology" at noon on Monday, April 4, in the Bldg. 50 auditorium.

Gomory has been president of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation since June 1989.

Prior to that, he was senior vice president for science and technology at IBM.

Gomery received his Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton University in 1954. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1954 to 1957. Joining IBM in 1959, he worked his way up through the organization until his retirement in 1989. He is a director of The Bank of New York, The Washington Post Company, Ashland Oil Inc., Lexmark International Inc., and the Polaroid Corporation.

Throughout his career, Gomory has served in many capacities in academic, industrial, and governmental organizations, and is a member of both the National Academies of Science and of Engineering. He has been awarded many honorary degrees and prizes. His scientific research interests have included integer and linear programming, network flow theory, nonlinear differential equations, and computers. In recent years he has written on the nature of technology and product devleopment, research in industry, industrial competitiveness, and on economic models involving economies of scale.

Eco-Film Festival to usher in LBL's 1994 Earth Month celebration

April has been designated Earth Month at LBL. Festivities begin Friday, April 1, with the Eco-Film Festival. Each Friday at noon through April 22, a film (or films) will be shown in the Bldg. 50 Auditorium. Many other activities are also scheduled throughout the month (look for a calendar of events in next week's Currents).

Following is a complete listing of the featured films. All films are under an hour in length. Free popcorn will be provided at all screenings.

Heroes of the Earth (April 1)

This film profiles the winners of the 1993 Goldman Environmental Prize, which has been called the Nobel Prize of environmentalism. It is awarded every April to six environmental heroes from six continents in a glittering San Francisco ceremony. Recipients are lauded for outstanding achievement in enhancing or preserving the environment within their respective cultures. The 1993 winners are from Australia, China, Colombia, Russia, South Africa, and the United States. Duane Silverstein, Executive Director of the Goldman Environmental Foundation, will introduce the film and answer audience questions afterwards.

Wilderness: The Last Stand (April 8)

Voted "Best Environmental Film" by the renowned Telluride Mountain Film Festival, this video offers a spine-chilling look at the consequences of Forest Service timber policies on our ancient virgin forests--and the American taxpayers' pocketbooks. The film engages a lively range of opinion from all sides of the debate, including a special appearance by Al Gore. The film is narrated by Susan Sarandon.

Eco-Rap: Voices from the Hood (April 15)

Fierce with energy, inventiveness and outrage, this video takes the environmental fight to inner-city youth. Eco-Rap, a Bay Area environmental education program, helps young people become active in the pressing ecological issues of their urban environment. Experts take them on "toxic tours" of their own neighborhoods, after which they are encouraged to compose raps about what they've learned. The raps are featured throughout the video, which culminates in a big concert in San Francisco. Producer Lynn Feinerman will be present to discuss the film and answer audience questions. *Look for rappers featured in the film at the LBL Eco-Fair on April 20.

"Reels on Wheels" Double Feature (April 22)

The Water Cycle

"Save Mono Lake" is a familiar rallying cry in the battle over water access that has helped define the history of the western United States. Since 1941, Los Angeles has diverted much of Mono Lake's water, threatening one of the most ancient and beautiful lakes in North America. As part of a twenty-year campaign to save Mono Lake, bicyclists from all over the world make an annual pilgrimage from Los Angeles to the lake. This video follows one of these dedicated groups, using their journey to portray the history of water wars and to examine the hidden issues of water policy, resource use, and development.

Return of the Scorcher

"Scorcher" was the nickname given to a bicyclist in the 1890s as tribute to what people of the time considered the bicycle's amazing speed. Filmed in Europe, China, and the United States, the video is a spirited, offbeat, and sometimes amusing look at how the bicycle is used today for transportation and recreation. A must for bicycle enthusiasts and novices alike. The LBL Bicycling Coalition will be present to offer cycling tips and answer questions.

All videos were provided by The Video Project of Oakland

Blood drive

LBL will have a blood drive on Friday, April 1, in Bldg. 70A-3377. All employees are encouraged to stop by between 7:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. and donate to the Blood Bank. Refreshments will be provided.



The national laboratories received a resounding endorsement for continued investment in basic research by biotechnology companies attending the Biotechnology and Biomedical Sciences Colloquium at the Pacific Northwest Laboratory, March 15-16. In addition to the national labs, DOE provided speakers from the Offices of Health and Environmental Research, Environmental Restoration and Waste Management, and Basic Energy Sciences. LBL was well represented: Brian Kincaid, Glen Dahlbacka, and Fred Schlachter attended on behalf of the Advanced Light Source; Chris Martin represented the Human Genome Center, and David Gilbert, the Life Sciences Division. Several other federal agencies were also represented. Dr. George Rathmann, Chairman Emeritus of Amgen and CEO of the biotech firm ICOS, delivered the keynote address. Former Associate Director of OHER, Dr. David Galas, now vice president of Research and Development for Darwin Molecular Inc., offered another industrial perspective, one influenced by his three and a half years in the government sector.


Henry T. Yang, dean of Purdue University's Schools of Engineering, will become the fifth chancellor of the University of California's Santa Barbara campus. UC's Board of Regents, at its March 18 meeting in San Francisco, approved UC President Jack Peltason's recommendation that Yang, 53, succeed Barbara Uehling, who announced last May her intention to leave UCSB. Yang will assume his new duties on June 23. Yang carved a distinguished 25-year career at Purdue as an outstanding administrator, a prominent aerospace engineer and an award-winning undergraduate teacher. Prior to his appointment as dean in 1984, he served five years as head of Purdue's School of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He has received many awards and honors, and has served on the NASA Aeronautical Advisory Committee and the Engineering Advisory Committee of the National Science Foundation. He holds the Neil A. Armstrong Distinguished Professor of Engineering Chair at Purdue. He was selected after a seven-month search by a committee of Regents, faculty, students, staff, and alumni that screened more than 150 candidates. He and UC Berkeley Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien are believed to be the only Asians ever to head a major U.S. research facility.


The UC Regents have endorsed a $900 million bond measure, Proposition 1B, which would help fund seismic repairs to provide safer learning environments for public higher education. If passed in the June 7 state ballot, the funds would be distributed to the University of California, California State University, and California Community Colleges. In addition to these funds, three capital projects were deferred so that more money would be available to five other seismic improvement projects.

Cafeteria to unveil new look, new services in coming months

By Mike Wooldridge, [email protected]

Although the faces behind the counters will remain the same, hungry LBL employees may not recognize their own cafeteria by this summer. The facility is getting a facelift.

Crews have already installed new sprinkler systems and will soon replace the tile floors. Next will come a change in the serving area layout and a restructuring of the menu. The changes will give people a larger selection at breakfast and lunch and get them through the cash register faster.

The construction comes with the change in cafeteria vendors--the Canteen Corp. took over in January.

"It is going to happen in several phases, with the serving area being done this spring," says Kathy Taylor, the new cafeteria manager. "Eventually we hope to renovate the entire cafeteria, including the dining room."

A change at the salad and sandwich bars will make eating at the cafeteria less of a guessing game. The cafeteria plans to do away with weighed items almost completely.

"We've found that people are just not comfortable with weighing their food," Taylor says. "You start putting things on the bread and you get to the register and what a surprise!" Phasing out the pound-based scales will also take the eatery closer to the goal of going totally metric.

Sandwiches will no longer be a do-it-yourself item; the sandwich bar will be converted to a deli. Cafeteria staff will prepare sandwiches for patrons individually. There also will be a selection of different sandwiches made just prior to lunch so people can "grab and go."

The salad bar will be expanded and consolidated with the soup and bread area. The soda dispensers, cups, and other drinks, now separate, will be merged onto a single island, and another cash register will be installed.

Changes were based upon surveys of meal-time traffic, as well as feedback from Lab employees. Taylor says her best tools for improving the quality of the facility are the suggestions from the cafeteria clientele directly and from comment cards.

"I've saved every comment card given to me," she says. "A while back, someone asked for more Chinese food, so we did chow mein, fried rice and egg rolls. It was a hit!"

The cafeteria staff, for the most part, has remained the same. All the workers were offered to keep their positions when Canteen took over, and all but two accepted. Joanne Bachand was promoted to catering manager after 11 years as head cook.

Lovers of the cafeteria griddle needn't fret over the renovation. One thing that won't be tinkered with is Sadie's Grill. "Sadie is an institution at the Lab," Taylor says. "We certainly wouldn't want to do anything to change that."

The tile replacement will require shutting down the cafeteria between April 25 and May 6, during which Canteen plans to provide lunch from catering trucks. Currents will print details as they become available. n

35 years ago . . .

At 5 o'clock in the morning of March 24, 1959, a weary group of Lawrence Radiation Lab scientists, peering at freshly-developed photographs, observed the scratchlike trails of hydrogen bubbles and knew that the world's biggest bubble chamber, a 72-inch glass-topped metal bathtub, was going to be a success. The faint scratches were the trails of charged particles which had traveled through a 200-foot-long pipe leading from the Bevatron into LRL's new Building 59 and a chamber filled with 150 gallons of liquid hydrogen cooled to almost 400 degrees below zero F.

The idea of building a liquid hydrogen chamber had originated with LRL's Luis Alvarez, who reasoned that liquid hydrogen would be an ideal target substance for studying elementary particles. (Donald Glaser's original bubble chamber, invented in 1952, had contained diethyl ether, and later models were filled with xenon and other liquids.) Design studies for the 72-inch chamber had started early in 1955, and the instrument was completed 65 man-years later, at a cost of $2 million. The chamber was designed by LRL's Mechanical Engineering Department, under supervision of Paul Hernandez. The late Paul Gow (formerly project engineer in charge of bubble chambers) and physicist Bob Watt were in charge of the early operations.

[You can see the bubble chamber today--in 1994. It's on display in the Building 50 Lobby.]

PHOTO CAPTION -- Nine years later, Paul Hernandez, Pete Schwemin, Ron Rinta, Bob Watt, Luis Alvarez, and Glen Eckman gather around the bubble chamber that brought Alvarez his 1968 Nobel Prize.
