(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A science team at Berkeley Lab has precisely measured some previously obscured properties of a 2-D semiconducting material known as moly sulfide, which opens up a new avenue to application...

New 3-D simulations show how galactic centers cool their jets

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Scientists at Berkeley Lab and Purdue University developed new theories and 3-D simulations to explain what's at work in the mysterious jets of energy and matter beaming from the center of galaxies at nearly the speed of light.

New simulations could help in hunt for massive mergers of neutron stars, black holes

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Scientists at Berkeley Lab have developed new computer models to explore what happens when a black hole joins with a neutron star - the superdense remnant of an exploded star.

New light-activated catalyst grabs CO2 to make ingredients for fuel

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Scientists at Berkeley Lab have developed a 'spongy,' light-activated material that converts carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, which can be used to turn into liquid fuels and other useful products. Show More Summary

Making polymer chemistry 'click'

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A team including Berkeley Lab scientists has developed a faster and easier way to make a class of sulfur-containing plastics that will lower the cost of large-scale production.

'Hindcasting' study investigates the extreme 2013 Colorado flood

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Using a publicly available climate model, Berkeley Lab researchers 'hindcast' the conditions that led to the Sept. 9-16, 2013 flooding around Boulder, Colo. and found that climate change attributed to human activity made the storm much more severe than would otherwise have occurred.

Berkeley Lab to lead multimillion-dollar geothermal energy project

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) The Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) will lead a new $9 million project aimed at removing technical barriers to commercialization of enhanced geothermal systems (EGS), a clean energy technology with the potential to power 100 million American homes.

Shading and lighting retrofits slash energy use in New York 'Living Lab' office demonstration

By using advanced lighting and automated shades, scientists from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) found that occupants on one floor of a high-rise office building in New York City were able to reduce lighting energy usage by nearly 80 percent in some areas.

New Berkeley lab algorithms extract biological structure from limited data

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A new Berkeley Lab algorithmic framework called multi-tiered iterative phasing (M-TIP) utilizes advanced mathematical techniques to determine 3-D molecular structure of important nanoobjects like proteins and viruses from very sparse sets of noisy, single-particle data.

Study on human skin microbiome finds archaea abundance associated with age

It turns out your skin is crawling with single-celled microorganisms—and they're not just bacteria. A study by the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the Medical University of Graz has found that the skin microbiome also contains archaea, a type of extreme-loving microbe, and that the amount of it varies with age.

X-ray technique provides a new window into exotic properties of an atomically thin material

An international team of researchers, working at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and UC Berkeley, fabricated an atomically thin material and measured its exotic and durable properties that make it a promising candidate for a budding branch of electronics known as "spintronics."

New class of 'soft' semiconductors could transform HD displays

A new type of semiconductor may be coming to a high-definition display near you. Scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown that a class of semiconductor called halide perovskites is capable of emitting multiple, bright colors from a single nanowire at resolutions as small as 500 nanometers.
