LaserNetUS has appointed its first coordinator: Chandra Breanne Curry, a scientist at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory who works on laser experiments to produce novel sources of ions and neutrons for applications in areas such as medicine and industry.

“LaserNetUS is evolving,” Curry says. “It’s growing into a bigger entity whose activities now require central coordination. This past year, the structure of the initiative has grown with the formation of six independent committees. In this coordinator role, I will ensure effective information flow between LaserNetUS and the user community to find the best facility and capabilities to perform world-leading science experiments. The role will also formalize the management of LaserNetUS out of SLAC, allowing the lab to continue to drive progress in the fields of high-energy-density laboratory plasmas and intense ultrafast laser science.”
