Located right in our backyard, Brookhaven National Laboratory delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation’s future. Join Joe Campolo and Peter Klein as they welcome Diane Hatton, the Electron-Ion Collider Project Manager, for a fascinating look at the lab’s Electron-Ion Collider and its impact on technology and our economy.
About the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC): All information technology – and much of our economy today – relies on understanding the electromagnetic force between the atomic nucleus and the electrons that orbit it. The science of that force is well understood, but we still know little about the microcosm within the atomic nucleus. That’s why BNL is building a new machine – an Electron-Ion Collider, or EIC – to look inside the nucleus. What we learn from the EIC could power the technologies of tomorrow.
