Lab Materials Scientist
Pens Science Perspective


One of the key questions facing researchers studying molecular electronic devices is what happens when molecules come in contact with metals. A subtle effect known as the Kondo resonance offers one way to study these contacts. In a Science Magazine "Perspective," Berkeley Lab materials scientist Michael Crommie discusses results of the Kondo effect in a single molecule on a gold surface. Full story.


Free Registration Still
Open for Townes Event


It's not too late for Berkeley Lab scientists, staff and students to register for free admission to the Oct. 6-8 symposium honoring Nobel Laureate Charles Townes at UC Berkeley. This offer is available only with advance registration and does not include meals. Identification is required upon check-in at the symposium. "Amazing Light: Visions for Discovery" honors the 90th year of physicist Townes' life. The program seeks to honor his vision and share it with new generations of research physicists, as well as explore possibilities for new discoveries about the nature of reality.

Guidelines, Important
Dates for Fiscal Close

The beginning of September marks the start of preparations for Berkeley Lab's fiscal year-end. The Lab is an integrated contractor to the Department of Energy and must close the accounting process for the year in accordance with Congressional mandate and in a tightly coordinated schedule for reporting to DOE. In addition to general information that will be distributed to the entire Lab community, there are specific activities and deadlines that directly affect finance and business management staff. Go here for more information on fiscal close.
