First ab initio method for characterizing hot carriers

One of the major road blocks to the design and development of new, more efficient solar cells may have been cleared. Researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed the first ab initio methodShow More Summary

Flipping the switch on Lawrence Berkeley Lab’s smart-energy center

It won’t necessarily take you around the world, but Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s new FlexLab facility wants to give companies fresh views — literally — on how to boost energy efficiency. The $15.9 million facility in the hills...Show More Summary

The Rotating Building Where the Offices of the Future Will Be Tested

2 weeks agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

High up in the hills of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory sit four square, blue buildings you'd be forgiven for finding nondescript. Inside, they're decorated with drab gray carpet familiar to any cubicle worker. But it's the buildings' electronic guts that make them unique in the whole world. Show More Summary

Resolving apparent inconsistencies in optimality principles for flow processes in geosystems

In a recent article published in the Chinese Science Bulletin, Hui-Hai Liu, a scientist in the Earth Sciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory of the University of California, proposed a new thermodynamic hypothesis.

Not much force: Berkeley researchers detect smallest force ever measured

What is believed to be the smallest force ever measured has been detected by researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley. Using a combination of lasers andShow More Summary

Using technology to make old songs sing again

last monthOdd : Boing Boing

In 2008, scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory used digital imaging machine to play back the oldest known recordings of the human voice. Now, the machine is being used by The Library of Congress. Read the rest

Report reviews estimates of costs and benefits of compliance with renewable portfolio standards

A new report, prepared by analysts from the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), reviews estimates of the costs and benefits of compliance with Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) in the United States and explores how costs and benefits may evolve over time. read more

Berkeley Lab researchers create nanoparticle thin films that self-assemble in 1 minute

The days of self-assembling nanoparticles taking hours to form a film over a microscopic-sized wafer are over. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have devised a technique whereby self-assembling nanoparticle arrays can form a highly ordered thin film over macroscopic distances in one minute. read more

Nevermind the Naysayers, Switching to Renewable Energy is a Bargain for States

The evidence is in and there is no sticker shock from states adding more clean energy to their power grid. A new study from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory entitled "A Survey of State-Level Cost and Benefit

New clues to why older women are more vulnerable to breast cancer

Scientists from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have gained more insights into why older women are more susceptible to breast cancer. They found that as women age, the cells responsible...Show More Summary
