Berkeley LAB

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) is a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory managed by the University of California. It was founded on the UC Berkeley campus in 1931 as an interdisciplinary research center by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist. LBNL continues to work in multidisciplinary teams on a wide range of global problems, including human health, technology, energy, and the environment.

Research at LBNL is characterized for its excellence, with an impressive number of honors and recognitions being awarded to researchers of the laboratory. Thirteen researchers of LBNL have been awarded the Nobel Prize, including the laboratory’s founder E. O. Lawrence, who received it for his invention of the cyclotron.

Many staff members have joint appointments at UC Berkeley and LBNL, including Prof. Alexis T. Bell, Prof. Dmitry Budker, Prof. Alexander Pines and Prof. Jeffrey A. Reimer, all academic members of ACalNet.

LBNL is located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus, overlooking San Francisco Bay.
