The Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts
research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences,
as well as in energy technologies. Brookhaven also builds and
operates major facilities available to university, industrial,
and government scientists. The Laboratory is managed by Brookhaven
Science Associates, a corporation founded by Stony Brook University
and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has announced $12 million in funding over the next four years for a new Center for Computational Design of Functional Strongly Correlated Materials and Theoretical Spectroscopy at Brookhaven National Laboratory and Rutgers University. Center scientists will develop next-generation methods and software to accurately describe electronic properties in complex strongly correlated materials, as well as a companion database to predict targeted properties with energy-related application to thermoelectric materials.
This summer, DOE's Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship program paired Bozeat with NSLS-II engineer Christopher Eng, who enlisted the student's help in designing the magnet assemblies that comprise NSLS-II's undulators -- devices that wiggle the electron beam to emit brighter X-rays.
The Department of Energy's Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
