Nanodevices That
Assemble Themselves

Imagine unrolling an electronic newspaper that's automatically updated via the Internet. Or cheap roof shingles that double as solar panels. These are just two technologies that could become possible with the advent of plastic electronics made from tiny components that assemble themselves. UC Berkeley chemical engineer and Berkeley Lab materials scientist Rachel Segalman is conducting the fundamental research that could help make this nanoscale dream a reality. In December, Segalman's efforts earned her a National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Full story.

Imaging Algorithm Also
Solves Sudoku Puzzles

Sudoku Puzzle
Cornell physicist Veit Elser has been engrossed recently in resolving a pivotal question in biological imaging. But in discovering an algorithm critical for X-ray diffraction microscopy, Elser and colleagues actually solved two problems: giving researchers a new tool for imaging tiny and delicate biological specimens, and discovering that the same algorithm also solves the internationally popular numbers puzzle Sudoku. Not just one puzzle...all of them. The diffraction data sets were collected at Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source (beamline 9.0.1). Full story.

Report Summarizes
Lab's 'View to the Future'

View to the Future cover
A View to the Future, a special report on Director Steve Chu's scientific vision for Berkeley Lab in the coming years, is now online. In it, initiatives in energy technologies, living systems, nanoscience, matter and energy in the universe, ultrafast science, and advanced computing are described, as well as an overview of operations support for the science here. A limited number of full-color 32-page copies of the report are available at the Public Affairs Office in Building 65; pick up a copy, or request one by calling x5771.

Biotech Ethics Talk
On Campus Friday

The Science, Technology, Ethics, and Law Group and the Science Technology and Society Center, both housed at UC Berkeley, are hosting a lecture by Yale law professor Daniel Kevles on "Patenting Life and Its Parts: Rights and Ethics in the Political Economy of Intellectual Property." The event takes place Friday from 2 to 5 p.m. in 22 Warren Hall. Lab employees are invited to attend. For more information, send e-mail here.

Documents Must Stay Here Upon Departure From Lab

Retiring from the Lab? Before you leave, check with Beret Ranelletti in the Archives and Records Office to ensure your records are properly archived. All records (regardless of media) created at the Lab are the property of the University of California or the U.S. government and must be left with the appropriate supervisor, project team, as well as Archives and Records, and cannot be moved off site. Records are defined as documentary material created or received in the course of lab business, and deal with policies, procedures, activities, and decisions. Records include memos, reports, correspondence, photographs, computer files, magnetic disks and tape, notebooks, microfilm and fiche, aperture cards, and e-mail. For details see RPM §1.16 Archives and Records Management and Legal Requirements.
