Lunch and Tours of Lawrence Berkeley Lab

One of America’s premier national laboratories will open its doors to WCSJ2017 participants to provide an inside look at synchrotron and nanoscience research facilities. Following the first session at UC Berkeley, a bus will depart for the Lawrence Berkeley Lab, returning before the end of the on-campus breakout sessions. Visitors choosing to visit the lab will have a choice of two two-hour tours:

  • The Advanced Light Source, a U.S. Department of Energy-funded synchrotron facility that provides users from around the world access to the brightest beams of soft x-rays, together with hard x-ray and infrared light, for scientific research and technology development in a wide range of disciplines.
  • The Molecular Foundry, a Department of Energy-funded nanoscience research facility that provides users from around the world with access to cutting-edge expertise and instrumentation in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment. This tour will include a look at some of the most powerful electron microscopes in the world at The Foundry’s National Center for Electron Microscopy.

Visitors should bring a photo ID. The conference will provide the lab with the names of tour registrants 48 hours in advance of this event to secure visitor passes.
