Profile of Fermi Award winner Charles Shank.
Using three Office of Science User Facilities, scientists found a way to control the self-assembly of photovoltaic polymers with exquisite precision, using a detergent-like molecule as a template.
Third in a series of profiles on the recipients of DOE’s Office of Science early career awards: Alysia Marino, a University of Colorado scientist who is spending her career tracking down neutrinos and learning their secrets.
10.07.15 Brookhaven scientists contributed to both Nobel-recognized experiments demonstrating that neutrinos change flavors, part of the Lab's legacy of groundbreaking neutrino research.
10.07.15 Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory have developed molecular modeling simulations and new theoretical formulations to help understand and optimize catalytic reactions that take place in chemical environments where the reactant “ingredients” for catalysis are not well mixed.
10.07.15 The revolution of computational materials design is in the making, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has taken a firm step toward achieving it by creating the Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials (MICCoM) at DOE's Argonne National Laboratory.
Five-time National Science Bowl champion Mira Loma HS keeps an intense – and pizza fueled – training regimen through the summer and fall. Read More »
Second in a series of profiles on the recipients of DOE’s Office of Science early career awards: Ivan Vitev, a Los Alamos National Lab scientist who shows how the building blocks of matter are organized in Nature’s toy box. Read More »
Berkeley Lab researchers create ultrathin invisibility cloak. Read More
Researchers at the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation, an Energy Frontier Research Center at the University of Delaware, have discovered that the imperfect patched surface of a bimetallic catalyst offers better performance than those formed from two perfect concentric circles.
The center is headquartered at Argonne, which is managed by UChicago Argonne LLC, with co-investigators from several universities, including the University of Chicago, Northwestern, Notre Dame, the University of Michigan and University of California, Davis.
Researchers at MIT have created tiny pores in single sheets of graphene that have an array of preferences and characteristics similar to those of ion channels in living cells.
The Office of Science (SC) is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States.
