Scientists at Michigan State University are dedicating considerable efforts to understanding basic mechanisms of photosynthesis and how the ‘solar panel,’ the photosynthetic membrane and ultimately the leaf, is built.
Newly discovered 'photosynthetic volume control' protects green organisms from unwanted light.
Interplay of light and matter is of potential technological interest.
06.22.16 For the past year, staff at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have been preparing users of 20 leading science applications for the arrival of the second phase of its newest supercomputer, Cori.
06.21.16 Scientists can now detect magnetic behavior at the atomic level with a new electron microscopy technique developed by a team from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Uppsala University, Sweden.
06.21.16 A research project led by the Critical Materials Institute, a U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub, has identified agents for the separation of rare-earth metals that are potentially much less costly and better-performing than those currently used.
Nanorods' behavior first theorized 20 years ago, but not seen until now. Read More

The researchers won Community Science Program support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute, which will provide “invaluable” services — DNA and RNA sequencing, bioinformatics and other analytical work to unlock the information encoded in shiitake genomes.
Carnegie’s Alexander Goncharov and University of Edinburgh’s Stewart McWilliams measures the conditions under which hydrogen undergoes this transition in the lab and finds an intermediate state between gas and metal, which they’re calling “dark hydrogen.”
Theoretical chemists in the Selloni lab at Princeton University have offered a detailed picture of the dynamics of excess electrons near anatase titanium dioxide (TiO2) surfaces.
The Office of Science (SC) is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States.
