Physical Sciences

Through fundamental research we are better prepared to understand, predict and control our universe.

Our work continues to push state of the art research and develops the tools and facilities necessary to enable the next generation of scientists. AUI designs, builds, and manages the large, sophisticated facilities necessary for world-class scientific research and experimentation. We actively engage with the scientific community and pursue and propose solutions to global challenges. AUI is currently working to address the needs for clean air, clean water, clean energy, and greater connectivity.

Through various sponsorships and partnerships AUI has enabled groundbreaking research resulting in countless advances that impact daily life in addition to six Nobel Prizes.

 

AUI created the user facility model at Brookhaven National Laboratory in 1946 enabling the US Department of Energy and the scientific community to share access to facilities and technological tools too large and expensive for any one institution to possess. With such partnerships, accelerators were created, our fundamental understanding of physics was shaped, and nuclear medicine was born. Through an historic and enduring partnership with the National Science Foundation, AUI has greatly shaped the state of radio astronomy.
