DOE Office of Science Director Cherry Murray presents the details of White House FY 2017 budget request.
DNA scaffolds cage and coax nanoparticles into position to form crystalline arrangements that mimic the atomic structure of diamond.
Berkeley Lab, Yale University, and the National Optical Astronomy Observatory join forces to develop Mosaic-3.
02.12.16 Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stony Brook University (SBU), and the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at SUNY Polytechnic Institute have developed a simple and powerful method for creating resilient, customized, and high-performing graphene: layering it on top of common glass.
02.12.16 Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and UC Berkeley have found a simple new way to produce nanoscale wires that can serve as tiny, tunable lasers.
02.11.16 A new study of imperfect crystals at SLAC’s LCLS X-ray laser has shown that the imperfections can be exploited to obtain much higher-resolution images than with conventional methods.

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility is now delivering data that could help scientists understand how clouds affect melting glaciers. Read More
Physicists suggest a smaller secondary inflationary period in the moments after the Big Bang could account for the abundance of the mysterious matter. Read More
Researchers at Illinois Institute of Technology and Loyola University have discovered new clues in the 100-year-old mystery of the Frank-Starling law of the heart: What makes the heart contract more strongly at longer lengths given the same level of calcium activation?
A team including Carnegie’s Qiaoshi “Charles” Zeng and Ho-kwang “Dave” Mao, among others, is trying to figure out the rules that govern metallic glass’s creation by looking at metallic glasses under extreme pressures.
Researchers at Cornell University have observed the catalytic reactions that pull apart water molecules are not distributed evenly across the surface of the semiconductor titanium dioxide, occurring only at “hotspots.”
The Office of Science (SC) is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States.
