BNL mourns death of particle-physics pioneer Ozaki

Satoshi Ozaki, a world-renowned physicist who helped design and build numerous particle accelerators for scientific research on two continents, died July 22, according to a statement from Brookhaven National Laboratory. He was 88. Ozaki, a BNL senior scientist emeritus, was a key driver of international collaborations in high-energy and nuclear physics, including highly regarded work at Brookhaven Lab’s Alternating Gradient Synchrotron and Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. Calling him “one of the world’s foremost accelerator builders,”…


Big investment, tiny particles and a giant leap for BNL

BY MICHAEL FAIRLIE // Brookhaven National Laboratory is stepping up its electromicroscopy game, in a big way. The fiscal year 2017 New York State budget includes $15 million for the Upton laboratory to purchase and install a cryo-electron microscope, which will work in tandem with the National Synchrotron Light Source II, the world’s brightest synchrotron light source. The Cryo-EM will be the backbone of BNL’s new Long Island Facility for Electromicroscopy, a national user facility…
