Disappearing Carbon Circuits on Graphene Could Have Security and Biomedical UsesExternal link

Using carbon atoms deposited on graphene with a focused electron beam process, scientists from Georgia Tech and collaborators have demonstrated a technique for creating dynamic patterns on graphene surfaces. Read More »


Ames Laboratory Scientists Create an All-Organic UV On-Chip SpectrometerExternal link

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory has developed a near ultra-violet and all-organic light emitting diode (OLED) that can be used as an on-chip photosensor. Read More »


Latest RHIC Results Presented at Quark Matter 2015External link

Experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), and later at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), have shown that collisions of two large nuclei such as gold or lead melt protons and neutrons to “free” their constituent quarks and gluons, creating a very hot, dense soup of matter’s fundamental building blocks.

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 More »

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 »


Titan Helps Unpuzzle Decades-Old Plutonium PerplexitiesExternal link

Through an allocation by the DOE Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research Leadership Computing Challenge, a team of condensed matter theorists at Rutgers University used nearly 10 million Titan core hours to calculate the electronic and magnetic structure of plutonium. Read More »
