Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) delivers science solutions to the world – solutions derived from its patented and patent pending inventions, copyrighted software, and published, peer-reviewed manuscripts. Its founder, E. O. Lawrence, believed team science yielded the greatest discoveries, an approach reflected today in interdisciplinary, collaborative projects connecting the lab with industry and other research institutions. By integrating team science, advanced instruments and user facilities, and world-renowned expertise in materials, chemistry, physics, biology, environmental science, and computing, Berkeley Lab develops technologies for next-generation batteries, biobased chemicals and fuels, energy efficient buildings, high performance computing, and many other applications.
