“Beginning in 1940, scientists at the lab, including Glenn Seaborg and Albert Ghiorso, discovered or synthesized more than a dozen elements heavier than uranium,” says ACS President Bonnie Charpentier, Ph.D. The new elements included plutonium, berkelium, californium and lawrencium. The researchers’ achievements culminated in 1974 with the creation of element 106, which was named seaborgium. “Through this Landmark event, we pay tribute to their extraordinary vision and dedication,” Charpentier says.
“Berkeley Lab researchers’ production and discovery of new elements and isotopes has opened up new fields in medical imaging and treatments, and enabled a richer understanding of the fundamental properties of atomic nuclei,” says Berkeley Lab Director Michael Witherell, Ph.D. "We are honored to be recognized for our pioneering efforts in expanding the periodic table of elements and expanding our knowledge of these exotic elements. Our ongoing studies of these elements are still yielding new information and inspiring ideas for practical applications,” he added.
“The Lawrence Hall of Science is proud to be a part of this rededication,” says Hall Director Rena Dorph. “The Hall was named for Ernest O. Lawrence to honor his legacy and to celebrate the outstanding work of all the Berkeley scientists who contributed so much to our understanding of chemical elements.”
