Celebrating the R&D 100 Award Winners from Office of Science National Laboratories
(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) In a breakthrough development, Los Alamos scientists have shown that they can successfully amplify light using electrically excited films of the chemically synthesized semiconductor nanocrystals known as quantum dots.
LEMONT, Illinois — I thought my first visit to a Department of Energy lab would be reminiscent of the Hawkins National Laboratory, the top-secret facility depicted in "Stranger Things." The Argonne National Laboratory, founded in 1946, is roughly 30 miles from downtown Chicago in Lemont, Illinois. Show More Summary
(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) Eight Los Alamos National Laboratory technologies won R&D 100 Awards last week at R&D Magazine's annual ceremony in Orlando, Florida.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory's new Summit supercomputer should rocket the U.S. back into the lead over China with the fastest supercomputer in the world.
Studies at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have made the first real-time observations of how silica – an abundant material in the Earth's crust – easily transforms into a dense glass when hit with a massive shock wave like one generated from a meteor impact.
(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) Argonne National Laboratory is collaborating with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to provide system software expertise and a development ecosystem for a future high-performance computing (HPC) system based on 64-bit ARM processors.
(DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) Scientists have identified a set of biomarkers that indicate which patients infected with the Ebola virus are most at risk of dying from the disease. The results come from one of the most in-depth studies ever of blood samples from patients with Ebola. Show More Summary
(INQNET ) The Alliance for Quantum Technologies (AQT), founded by Caltech and AT&T in May 2017 in collaboration with national laboratories and industry partners, is presenting the 'INtelligent Quantum NEtworks & Technologies' (INQNET) research program at Supercomputing 2017 in Denver (Nov. Show More Summary
A study by scientists – including those at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) – has revealed a chain mail-like woven microstructure that gives parrotfish teeth their remarkable bite and resilience.
Fusion powers the sun, and if we could harness it here on Earth, we could obtain unlimited clean energy. Scientists have been working on that goal for years, and now researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Texas A&M University just made a huge leap forwards.

The American Heart Association (AHA) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have formed a strategic business partnership to overcome the burden of drug discovery, cost and access.
Gathered in a control room deep in the Nevada desert, a team of researchers from Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos national laboratories watched safety monitors as a carefully layered stack of plutonium inched toward "critical" - the point at which fissile material can sustain a nuclear chain reaction.

A new study led by researchers at the Department of Energy's Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI), based at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), demonstrates the importance of microbial communities as a source of stable enzymes that could be used to convert plants to biofuels.
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) In search of new plant enzymes? Try looking in compost. Researchers at JBEI have demonstrated the importance of microbial communities as a source of stable enzymes that could be used to convert plants to biofuels. This approach yields robust enzymes that researchers can't easily obtain from isolates.
(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) Argonne National Laboratory has been recognized in the annual HPCwire Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards, presented at the 2017 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC17), in Denver, Colorado.
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) The US Department of Energy's Office of Science announced 55 projects with high potential for accelerating discovery through its Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program. Show More Summary
(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) A quest to help the systems software community work on very large supercomputers without having to actually test on them has spawned an affordable, scalable system using thousands of inexpensive Raspberry Pi nodes.
A team of computer scientists and engineers from Sandia National Laboratories and Boston University recently received a prestigious award at the International Supercomputing conference for their paper on automatically diagnosing problems in supercomputers.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) A team of computer scientists and engineers from Sandia National Laboratories and Boston University recently won the Gauss Award at the International Supercomputing conference for their paper about using machine learning to automatically diagnose problems in supercomputers.
