Researchers Create First Entropy-Stabilized Complex Oxide AlloysExternal link

Researchers from North Carolina State University and Duke University have created the first entropy-stabilized alloy that incorporates oxides – and demonstrated conclusively that the crystalline structure of the material can be determined by disorder at the atomic scale rather than chemical bonding.

Scientists Unravel Root Cause of Plant Twists and TurnsExternal link

Cornell University physicists and Boyce Thompson Institute plant biologists have uncovered a valuable plant root action, in that roots – when their downward path is blocked, as often occurs in rocky soil – display a “grow and switch” behavior. Read MoreExternal linkage

Neutrinos are the ghosts of the universe. They pass through all matter and travel at near the speed of light. And some begin with a star’s violent death. Alysia Marino is spending her career hunting down neutrinos and learning their secrets.09.30.15Article

Hunting Cosmic Ghosts

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. Read More »

Proud Model: Rolling on the RiverExternal link

A team led by scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory coupled a newly developed river-routing model with an Earth system model, and the simulated streamflow compared favorably against the observed streamflow from more than 1,600 major river stations worldwide. Read MoreExternal linkage
