The University of California at Berkeley (UC-Berkeley) is the flagship of the University of California system. Berkeley was established in 1868 as the first of the public universities of the eventual 10 campuses. UC Berkeley has an acclaimed physics department. It is the manager of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Nearly 25,000 undergraduate and graduate students undertake UC Berkeley's 200 programs and individual post graduate degree programs. UC Berkeley has a solid $2 billion endowment with the ability to attract grants from the National Science Foundation and other foundations. UC Berkeley has numerous Nobel Laureates with ties to its university and Medal of Science recipients.

Engineers have successfully married electrons and photons within a single-chip microprocessor, a landmark development that opens the door to ultrafast, low-power data crunching.
Snaring a dark energy 'chameleon': Is dark energy hiding from us? Matter may be screening it from our view
If dark energy is hiding in our midst in the form of hypothetical particles called "chameleons," Holger Müller and his team at the University of California, Berkeley, plan to flush them out.
If you installed solar panels on your roof and feel aglow with environmental virtue, you may be in for a rude awakening. There's a good chance someone else has purchased your halo and is wearing it right now.
