An emerging class of atomically thin materials known as monolayer semiconductors has generated a great deal of buzz in the world of materials science.
Lori Diachin at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory discusses her path in computer science.
Wang Hall takes advantage of Lab’s hillside location for advanced energy efficiency.
11.27.15 Although Alesha Harris’ graduate work was in nanoparticles—materials just a billionth of a meter in size—she joined the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory as an postdoc to work on something she had never heard of before: invisible subatomic particles called neutrinos.
11.27.15 More than 190 countries are meeting in Paris next week to create a durable framework for addressing climate change and to implement a process to reduce greenhouse gases over time.
11.25.15 Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have for the first time modeled previously unsuspected sources of turbulence in spherical tokamaks, an alternative design for producing fusion energy.
An unprecedented blend of intense magnetic and x-ray laser pulses produces surprising 3-D effect. Read More

Called Isotopolis, the game is a joint venture of MSU’s National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory and the Games for Entertainment and Learning Lab to get the public, including children as young as middle schoolers, interested in science.
In a study published in the journal Nature Geoscience, a Yale-led research team explored differences in ocean temperatures over the last 5 million years.
As interest in biofuels has surged in recent years, the question about how to best handle lignin—a material found in the cell walls of plants that is a byproduct of biofuel production—has become a primary concern. Thanks to ongoing research being led in part by Art Ragauskas, UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair for Biorefining, an answer to that problem could be just over the horizon.
