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.
Reports of the non-existence of the so-called 'sterile' neutrino are premature, say scientists at the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory -- even as they release results from two experiments that further limit the places this elusive particle may be hiding.
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.
