Berkeley Lab's accelerators have enabled new explorations of the atomic nucleus; the production and discovery of new elements and isotopes, and of subatomic particles and their properties; created new types of medical imaging and treatments; and provided new insight into the nature of matter and energy, and new methods to advance industry and security, among other wide-ranging applications.
Berkeley Lab scientists have also pioneered a framework for designing, building, and operating these machines of big science with multidisciplinary teams. The Lab's longstanding expertise is now driving a new generation of innovations in advanced accelerators and their components.
