America's government laboratories are a reservoir of scientific and technological capabilities. They contribute to national defense, scientific discoveries, space exploration, better agriculture and improved health care. Over the past decade. Congress has directed the labs to pass along their research ideas and technological knowhow to commercial companies in an effort to enhance the country's competitiveness in global markets. In an attempt to understand how the national labs can best achieve their new mission while retaining their old strengths, PHYSICS TODAY editors brought together six prominent members of the nation's R&D enterprise to discuss the issues.
