Two novel methods will allow researchers to develop new “smart” materials.
New technique combines electron microscopy and synchrotron x-rays at Brookhaven Lab to track chemical reactions under real operating conditions.
Researchers supported by the Office of Science are doing ‘cool’ new research this summer.
07.01.15 Each year, the ALCC program selects projects with an emphasis on high-risk, high-payoff simulations in areas directly related to the DOE mission and for broadening the community of researchers capable of using leadership computing resources.
07.01.15 A new recycling method developed by scientists at the Critical Materials Institute, a U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub led by the Ames Laboratory, recovers valuable rare-earth magnetic material from manufacturing waste and creates useful magnets out of it.
06.30.15 3D measurements of microstructures reveal that sodium's larger ion size does not degrade battery materials as much as previously thought.

New LHC data gives researchers from around the world their best chance yet to study the Higgs boson and search for dark matter and new particles. Collaborators in the effort include scientists from the Department of Energy’s Brookhaven, Fermilab, Berkeley and Oak Ridge national laboratories. Read More
Platinum is a highly reactive and in-demand catalyst across the chemical and energy industries, but a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison and Georgia Institute of Technology scientists could reduce the world’s dependence on this scarce and expensive metal.
Researchers at Vanderbilt University have developed a new mathematical formulation of viscosity, which may lead to new insights into dark energy and possibly the fate of the universe.
Brown University researchers worked with scientists at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to image the first stages of a key chemical reaction as it happens.
The Office of Science (SC) is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States.
