Researchers played a key role in an analysis of data from the world’s largest particle collider that found proof of rare, high-energy particle interactions in which matter was produced from light.They found about 174 particle interactions that are consistent with the creation of pairs of heavy force-carrying W bosons particles from the collision of two photons.
Berkeley Lab has been selected to serve as DOE’s lead lab and carry out DOE responsibilities in the largest collaborative effort yet to explore the universe’s relic light. The CMB-S4 experiment will survey the microwave sky in unprecedented detail and is intended to unlock many secrets in cosmology, fundamental physics, astrophysics, and astronomy.

Tour Berkeley Lab’s 200-acre main site from above in this video, which uses drone footage taken in 2020. Get a birds-eye-view of the Lab’s more than 100 buildings, both historic and new — including the Advanced Light Source, Molecular Foundry, Shyh Wang Hall, and the rotating FLEXLAB building — where Lab scientists conduct cutting-edge work in the fields of nanoscience, computing, energy technologies, biosciences, physics, cosmology, nuclear science, and other disciplines to find science solutions for the world.
The Department of Energy has awarded $115 million over five years to the Quantum Systems Accelerator, a new center led by Berkeley Lab that will forge solutions to harness quantum information science for discoveries, energize the nation’s research community, and accelerate the transfer of quantum technologies from the lab to the marketplace.
