Louis Rosen

Laboratory Senior Fellow Emeritus, Louis Rosen, was the driving force behind the conception and the development of the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE). Louis, shown here with a model of LANSCE's half-mile-long 800-MeV linear accelerator, directed LANSCE from its inception in 1972 until 1985. Louis continued to work at LANSCE until two days before his death in August of 2009. He was 91.

Known as the Father of LANSCE, Louis is remembered for his tireless efforts, scientific achievements, humor, and compassion. Louis lives on in the hearts of all who had the privilege to know him.
