The Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics Division (ATAP) invents, develops, and deploys particle accelerators and accelerator-based photon sources to explore and control matter and energy. ATAP serves as a central resource for accelerator-based science in the Physical Sciences Area, Berkeley Lab, the Department of Energy research complex, and the world.
The Engineering Division builds advanced scientific instrumentation that enables many of the research breakthroughs achieved by Berkeley Lab. These discoveries are the direct result of the integrated coordination and deployment of professional engineering and specialized technical resources.
The Nuclear Science Division conducts basic research aimed at understanding the structure and interactions of nuclei and the forces of nature as manifested in nuclear matter.
Interactions between matter and energy shape our world and the universe around us. Physics Division researchers are studying these interactions from the innermost confines of subatomic particles to the outermost reaches of the cosmos.
