SLAC's x-ray laser lends new insight into key target for drug development.
Scientists at Pacific Northwest and Los Alamos national laboratories, along with colleagues at the University of Leeds and the University of Washington, show that marine life cultivates half of the summer cloud droplets over the Southern Ocean.
07.27.15 Joint BioEnergy Institute study identifies protein that is key to protecting rice against bacterial blight.
07.24.15 Scientists at DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory are working on a surprising discovery that has important implications for the field of spintronics and the development of high-speed, low-power electronics that use electron spin rather than charge to carry information.
07.23.15 Scientists at the University of Chicago and Oak Ridge National Lab, supported by DOE’s Early Career Research Awards, are attacking exascale computing challenges on two fronts: power and resilience.

Discovery by the Rice researchers could lead to new insights into Quark-Gluon-Plasma, a state of matter that was last common in the universe a millionth of a second after the Big Bang.
University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have developed a new approach to structuring the catalysts used in essential reactions in the chemical and energy fields.
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin are one step closer to delivering smart windows with a new level of energy efficiency, engineering materials that allow windows to reveal light without transferring heat and, conversely, to block light while allowing heat transmission, as described in two new research papers.
