Reminder: Blackberry
Gate Work on Monday

Employees who use Blackberry Gate to enter the Lab are reminded that construction will begin there on Monday, causing traffic delays and occasional closures. Drivers are encouraged to use Grizzly and Strawberry Gates whenever possible. The 25 parking spots in the "horseshoe" lot, just below Blackberry Gate, will be unavailable throughout the project.

Chemist's Climate Change Studies Featured in Q&A

Berkeley Lab earth scientist and UC Berkeley professor Kristie Boering is featured in a Q&A article on the campus's College of Chemistry website. In it, Boering, along with colleague Ron Cohen, both atmospheric chemists, discuss their research on climate change and its implications. Go here to read the story.

Spinons And Holons
Observed at ALS

The spin and electrical charge of an electron are thought to be intrinsic parts of a whole, like the body and wheels of a car, incapable of separate and independent actions. However, according to a 40-year-old theory, certain conditions in a one-dimensional solid can lead to the separation of spin and charge into two new particles called "spinons" and "holons." A team of scientists working at the Advanced Light Source, which included Berkeley Lab's Eli Rotenberg, has obtained the first direct and unambiguous proof that the theory is correct. Full story.

Berkeley Fume Hood
Licensed for Manufacture

Esco Micro Pte Ltd. has recently concluded an exclusive license to manufacture and sell energy-efficient fume hoods for use in laboratories.   The Berkeley Lab technology invented by researchers in the Facilities and Environmental Energy Technologies Divisions saves up to 75 percent of energy over traditional hoods and eliminates the need for expensive control systems.


Nanodevices is Topic Of Next 'Friends' Lecture

Berkeley Lab materials scientist Charles Fadley is the guest speaker at the next Friends of Science lecture on Saturday, July 22, from 1:30 to 4 p.m. in Perseverance Hall. He will discuss "Looking Inside Nanodevices With X-Rays," which will include a tour of beamlines and experimental stations that are involved with nanoscience studies at the Advanced Light Source. Fadley is also a professor of physics at UC Davis. Reservations are required
