Berkeley physicist Daniel Chemla dies at 67

Abstract:
Daniel S. Chemla, a remarkably versatile physicist whose leadership at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory advanced the lab's renown for nanoscale research and saved its major synchrotron radiation instrument from federal budget crunchers, died Thursday at his home in Kensington.

Dr. Chemla, 67, had been ill for four years after suffering a stroke.

He had been director of the Lawrence Berkeley Lab's Materials Science Division, and also of the lab's Advanced Light Source, a powerful machine that produces extraordinarily bright beams of ultraviolet and X-ray light for scientific and technological research. He also held an appointment as a professor of physics at UC Berkeley.

In a written statement, Berkeley lab director Steven Chu called Dr. Chemla "a visionary in the materials sciences, nanoscience and synchrotron science," and added, "I am in awe of his record and grateful for his legacy."
