On the Budget Front…

The FY 2008 Omnibus Appropriations Bill was not good for science.

The President’s Request for FY 2009 is very good, but will almost certainly not be realized.

Physics Dept. funds

  • We have fared better than other labs in this very difficult budget year:

  • BNL has avoided the layoffs and furloughs seen elsewhere, but the squeeze is on…

    • Every effort made to maximize the RHIC run

    • A critical time for ATLAS (LHC start-up this year) and Daya Bay (construction starting)

      • Travel costs are a particular issue

  • Our Department is in a mode of fiscal austerity.

Budget projections for the remainder of this fiscal year (through September) are in the RED.

You can help: Please try to reduce your vacation carry-over as much as possible.

Nuclear Physics

RHIC has high priority in DOE/NSF NSAC 2007Long Range Plan: ~40% of DOE investment in Nuclear Physics

BNL’s Goals:

Complete the upgrades of PHENIX, STAR, RCF for RHIC II science capability.

Maintain BNL’s forefront role in heavy ion and spin research.

Maintain the BNL research groups’s successful host roles in experimental operations at RHIC.

Establish an intellectual base at RHIC for the development of eRHIC science.

Long Term Vision for BNL High Energy Physics

BNL’s plans are very well aligned with the priorities of the new DOE “P5” Long Range Plan.

  • The Energy Frontier:

  • Host Laboratory for U.S. ATLAS collaboration

  • Unique national role for advanced accelerator development

    The Intensity Frontier:

  • Leading role in U.S.-China Daya Bay Neutrino experiment

    • R&D and planning for future Long Baseline neutrino expt.

      The Cosmic Frontier:

  • Initiating a new effort in astrophysics: cosmology & dark energy

    • In concert with Instrumentation Div. work on LSST


Physics department meeting june 19 2008

Space News

  • In the near term:

  • Cleaning and refurbishing several labs.

  • Consolidating machine shop facilities.

New: Department Safety

Headquarters

RACF Expansion: in progress

High on our priorities:

Refurbish the Large Seminar room

Repair our dismal front entrance

There are longer term plans taking shape for major renovation of building 510.


Physics department meeting june 19 2008

DOE Strategic Laboratory Infrastructure Initiative

  • A $1.5B investment to modernize DOE Labs (10 involved)

  • The Labs are making competitive proposals

  • BNL is proposing projects amounting to $350M

  • BNL’s proposals include:

  • Interdisciplinary Science Building I

    • FY09 – FY12 Labs and office space for CMPMS, EENS, Biology$66M

  • Renovate Science Labs II

    • FY10 – FY13Renovate lab space in Buildings 510, 555$50M

  • Interdisciplinary Science Building II

    • FY12 – FY15Office space and labs for Bio-energy, Instrum.$70M

  • Central Computing Building

    • FY17 – FY18Accommodate growth in computing capacity$27M
