Researchers find new mechanism for genome regulation

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) The mechanisms that separate mixtures of oil and water may also help the organization of a part of our DNA called heterochromatin, according to a new Berkeley Lab study. Researchers found that...Show More Summary

New prototypes for superconducting undulators show promise for more powerful, versatile X-ray beams

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and Argonne National Laboratory have collaborated to design, build and test two devices that utilize different superconducting materials and could make X-ray lasers more powerful, versatile, compact and durable.

Sound waves direct particles to self-assemble, self-heal

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Berkeley Lab scientists have demonstrated how floating particles will assemble and synchronize in response to acoustic waves. Their simple experiment provides a new framework for studying how seemingly lifelike behaviors emerge in response to external forces. Show More Summary

Roofline model boosts manycore code optimization efforts

A software toolkit developed at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) to better understand supercomputer performance is now being used to boost application performance for researchers running codes at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and other supercomputing facilities.

How X-rays helped to solve mystery of floating rocks

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Experiments at Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source have helped scientists to solve a mystery of why some rocks can float for years in the ocean, traveling thousands of miles before sinkin...

Not all cool pavements are created equal

Cool pavements can help keep cities cool, right? Yes, but according to new research from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), many reflective pavements have some unexpected drawbacks relative to conventional pavements when considering the entire life cycle of the materials.

Measuring the mass number of superheavy, human-made elements

A new tool at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) will be taking on some of the periodic table's latest heavyweight champions to see how their masses measure up to predictions.

Berkeley Lab scientists discover new atomically layered, thin magnet

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Berkeley Lab scientists have found an unexpected magnetic property in a 2-D material. The new atomically thin, flat magnet could have major implications for a wide range of applications, such as nanoscale memory, spintronic devices, and magnetic sensors.

Scientists discover new atomically layered, thin magnet

It may not seem like a material as thin as an atom could hide any surprises, but a research team led by scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) discovered an unexpected magnetic property in a two-dimensional material.

Gravity-lensed supernova magnifes understanding of universe

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Using an automated supernova-hunting "pipeline," scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have identified a Type Ia supernova that exploded about four billion years ago. Called iPTF16geu, it's sitting behind...Show More Summary

How X-rays pushed topological matter research over the top

While using X-rays generated by the Advanced Light Source (ALS), a synchrotron facility at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), to study a bismuth-containing thermoelectric material that can convert heat into electricity, physicist M. Show More Summary

Researchers gain insight into protein critical to Zika virus reproduction

Zika virus is a mosquito-borne infectious disease linked to certain birth defects in infants in South and Central America and the United States. A Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) researcher, Banumathi Sankaran, worked as part of a multi-institutional team to map a key viral protein called NS5. Show More Summary

Researchers gain insight into protein critical to Zika virus reproduction

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Berkeley Lab researchers collaborated with colleagues from the University of Indiana and Texas A&M University to solve the atomic structure of a Zika virus protein that is key to viral reproduction. The X-ray studies were conducted at the Advanced Light Source in the Berkeley Center for Structural Biology.

Coming to a lab bench near you: Femtosecond X-ray spectroscopy

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Berkeley Lab researchers have, for the first time, captured the ephemeral electron movements in a transient state of a chemical reaction using ultrafast, tabletop X-ray spectroscopy. The researchers...Show More Summary

The 'time machine' that replicates 3 years of weather in 3 days

(Concordia University) An engineering team at Concordia has collaborated with researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California to simulate the weathering of cool roofs in the lab. In just a few days, they can now reproduce three years of aging for roofing products in order to test their solar reflectance.

New materials could turn water into the fuel of the future

Scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have—in just two years—nearly doubled the number of materials known to have potential for use in solar fuels.

New materials could turn water into the fuel of the future

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Scientists at Berkeley Lab and Caltech have -- in just two years -- nearly doubled the number of materials known to have potential for use in solar fuels. They did so by developing a process that promises to speed the discovery of commercially viable generation of solar fuels that could replace coal, oil, and other fossil fuels.

How a mineral found in Martian meteorites may provide clues to ancient abundance of water

Mars may have been a wetter place than previously thought, according to research on simulated Martian meteorites conducted, in part, at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab).
