Thirty-two researchers from DOE national labs are elected as American Physical Society Fellows.
Nanostructured surface textures—with shapes inspired by the structure of moths' eyes—prevent the reflection of light off silicon, improving conversion of sunlight to electricity.
A superconducting magnet begins its journey from SLAC laboratory in California to Brookhaven Lab in New York.
01.26.15 Using a powerful microscope that lets researchers see the formation of crystals in real time, a team led by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory found that negatively charged molecules — such as carbohydrates found in the shells of mollusks — control where, when, and how calcium carbonate forms.
01.21.15 Using supercomputing resources at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), a team of nuclear physicists has made a key discovery in its quest to shed light on the structure and behavior of subatomic particles.
01.21.15 Contrary to conventional wisdom, an international collaboration of scientists led by Berkeley Lab researchers demonstrated that cultures of plants grown in labs show sufficient biodiversity to be used for natural product screening.

Lab is showcasing 12 images and the stories behind them in a 2015 calendar. Read More
Results by researchers at Northwestern University indicate that silver nanowires could potentially withstand strong cyclic loads for long periods of time, which is a key attribute needed for flexible electronics.
A team of physicists at the University of California, Riverside has found an ingenious way to induce magnetism in graphene while also preserving graphene’s electronic properties.
By analyzing such parameters as the force applied by key presses and the time interval between them, a new self-powered non-mechanical intelligent keyboard developed by researchers at Georgia Tech could provide a stronger layer of security for computer users.
The Office of Science (SC) is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States.
