First results from collisions of three-particle ions with gold nuclei reveal clear-cut evidence of primordial soup's signature particle flow.
Accelerating positrons with plasma is a step toward smaller and cheaper particle colliders.
Warmer-than-usual waters in North Atlantic contribute to both phenomena.
09.02.15 A major international collaboration launched by the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is laying the technical groundwork for taking individual, atomic-scale portraits of intact viruses, living bacteria and other microscopic samples using the brightest X-ray light on Earth.
09.02.15 Recent experiments at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have afforded researchers a greater understanding of how to manipulate photosynthesis, putting humankind one step closer to harvesting “solar fuel,” a clean energy source that could one day help replace coal and natural gas.
09.02.15 Scientists from the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a computerized way to measure DNA repair in thousands of human mammary epithelial cells before and after they’re exposed to ionizing radiation.
X-ray laser experiment at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory reveals never-before seen neural messaging details which could help in designing new drugs for brain disorders. Read More
Researchers at EMSL study the components and inhabitants of soil communities, gathering data to better understand and model how factors – agriculture, climate changes, ecosystems activities – change soil chemistry. Read More »
Scientists used the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to create a 100-million-atom simulation of a chromatophore, providing an unprecedented look at how bacteria harvest light for food. Read More
Caltech engineers have created flat devices capable of manipulating light in ways that are very difficult or impossible to achieve with conventional optical components.
Wichita State professors and students have found that new evidence supports the Big Bang Theory and emerging ideas in medical and defense technology.
Researchers from LSU, Fudan University, the University of Florida and the Collaborative Innovation Center of Advanced Microstructures in Nanjing, China, conducted research on materials that separate into different regions through a process called electronic phase separation, which is poorly understood.
The Office of Science (SC) is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States.
