The cluster hires in photon science will enhance Stony Brook's leading role in the Joint Photon Science Institute (JPSI), a joint Stony Brook University-Brookhaven National Laboratory initiative in photon sciences that will capitalize on the unique capabiliities of Brookhaven's National Synchrotron Light Scource II (NSLS-II). Once completed, NSLS-II will be the brightest synchrotron light source in the world and will offer unique possiblilities for the study of structure and properties of materials over a broad spectrum of science disciplines. Scientists in the new cluster-which spans research interests in Biochemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Geoscience, Material Science, and Mineral Physics-will be at the forefront of research in materials design and function, energy, and health/drug design. This cluster initiative is spearheaded by Dr. Laszlo Mihaly, Professor and Chair, Department of Physics and Astronomy and Dr. John Parise, Distinguished Professor, Department of Geosciences.
