The Decade Ahead
As we move through the next decade, the Lab’s vision is to be the “provider of choice” for world-class science and facilities in support of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science and its mission to enable breakthroughs that ensure a successful future for our nation. To us, this means excellence in all aspects of our work – from science, to safety, to project management, and more.
The Laboratory’s mission for the coming decade focuses on three broad areas: (1) advancing fundamental research in nuclear and particle physics to gain a deeper understanding of matter, energy, space, and time; (2) applying photon sciences and nanomaterials research to energy problems of critical importance to the nation; and (3) performing cross-disciplinary research to understand the relationship between climate change, sustainable energy, and the Earth’s ecosystems.
How do we do this? By pursuing the evolution and continued scientific leadership of the Lab’s user facilities — the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS), Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), and Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) — and focusing on five major activities built on our existing core capabilities.
Over several decades, Brookhaven has developed expertise in specific areas of science and associated applications through the conception, design, construction, and operation of advanced facilities like the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS), RHIC, NSLS, and CFN. These capabilities include:
- Particle and nuclear physics,
- Accelerator science and technology
- Condensed matter physics and materials science,
- Chemical and molecular science,
- Climate change science,
- Biological systems science,
- Applied nuclear science and technology
- Applied materials science and engineering,
- Chemical engineering,
- Systems engineering and integration, and
- Large-scale user facilities and advanced instrumentation.
