"I am honored and elated to be recognized for my professional contributions in the field of accelerator science," said Weng, who is an international leader in accelerator design. "I also want to thank
In the earlier days of his career Weng was in charge of the multi-million dollar Accumulator-Booster project at Brookhaven from 1987-1991. The Booster is a particle accelerator that injects heavy ions into the (AGS), which, in turn, injects them into the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), where physicists from around the globe are exploring what the universe may have looked like in the first few moments after its creation. Weng's current research focuses on the development of fixed-field accelerator design (FFAG) for eRHIC (the addition of an electron ring to RHIC) and ADS (accelerator driven) reactor systems.
In 2007, Weng was selected to work in the DOE's of High-Energy Physics (in
In 2010, when Weng left DOE to return to Brookhaven he was recognized by then Director of the
