Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL)

National laboratory in the United States, located on Long Island, New York. The BNL operates the Relativististic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a particle accelerator that enables researchers to recreate the state of matter fractions of a second after the big bang. Also, BNL operates accelerators used to produce synchrotron radiation. One of them, the VUV ring, can be seen on the page E=mc2 in the chapter Special relativity of Elementary Einstein.
