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
Brown University researchers worked with scientists at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to image the first stages of a key chemical reaction as it happens.
Research led by Michigan State University scientists developed a method that will more easily allow an electrical current to pass through materials, possibly leading to new and improved semiconductors.
Physicists at the University of California, San Diego, have found a way to control the length and strength of waves of atomic motion that have promising potential uses such as fine-scale imaging and the transmission of information within tight spaces.
