Summary

An advisory panel to the Department of Energy (DOE) last week laid out a painful set of choices to fit a burgeoning field into a tight budget. If DOE doesn't get a substantial increase for the operation and upgrade of four big synchrotrons, it should put the squeeze on the $100 million Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. Researchers say this prescription could jeopardize the future of the 4-year-old facility.
