DOE Celebrates 40 Years of Research

The Department of Energy will celebrate its 40th anniversary on Oct. 1. To mark the occasion, the Office of Science has collected 40 major papers it has supported from the past 40 years that have changed the face of science. Every day leading up to the event, the Office of Science will post one new milestone paper here; you can also follow them on Twitter @doescience #Energy40.

Berkeley Lab researchers contributed to 13 of these milestones, including computer scientist Van Jacobson, who laid out the foundations for controlling and avoiding congestion on the internet (1988), and Computing Sciences’ Philip Colella, who developed AMR (adaptive mesh refinement) modeling software for a wide array of applications, from airplane engines to ice sheets (1989).
