The Surprising Electronics
Of Graphene

Graphene is the two-dimensional crystalline form of carbon: a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in hexagons, like a sheet of chicken wire with an atom at each nexus. As free-standing objects, such two-dimensional crystals were believed impossible to create--even to exist--until physicists at the University of Manchester actually made graphene in 2004. Now researchers at the Advanced Light Source, including Berkeley Lab’s Michael Martin, and Zhiqiang Li from the University of California at San Diego, have measured the extraordinary properties of graphene with an accuracy never before achieved. The researchers report their findings in the June issue of the journal Nature Physics. Full story

Emergency Preparedness
Week Fair Held Today

The Lab will host an Emergency Preparedness Fair today from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on the grounds adjacent to the cafeteria. The Fair will showcase lab volunteer teams talking about their emergency roles, an Urban Search & Rescue Canine unit, Earthquake Shake platform, exhibitors, raffle prizes, music and more. This year Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates will present a proclamation to the lab leadership commemorating the Lab’s emergency preparedness efforts.  Emcee for the Fair will be George Rosas. A BBQ lunch will be available. Purchase tickets for $5 in the cafeteria, or bring exact change to purchase from an outdoor cashier.

'When the Earthquake Hits'
Talk at Noon Tomorrow

As part of Emergency Preparedness Week, Berkeley Lab’s Lawrence Hutchings and Fred Angliss will present “When the Earthquake Hits,” a video that examines potential impacts to the Lab as a result of a Hayward Fault earthquake. The talk will take place at noon tomorrow in the Building 50 Auditorium. All employees are invited to attend.

Lots Near Bldg. 50, 70
Blocked on Thursday

To accommodate a visit to the Lab by Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and her delegation, the H2 parking lot, just north of Building 70 will be closed. The H1 parking lot, located on the south side of Building 50, will have all of its blue triangle spaces blocked off, as well as the orange circle and government spots along the south wall.
