NRL reveals novel uniform coating process of p-ALD

WASHINGTON - Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have devised a clever combination of materials -- when used during the thin-film growth process -- to reveal that particle atomic layer deposition, or p-ALD, deposits...Show More Summary

"Oldest Light in the Universe" -- Illuminates an Ancient Supermassive Black Hole

“Supermassive black hole activity, including the launching of jets, may be different in the early Universe than what we see later on,” said co-author Teddy Cheung of the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC. “By finding and studying more of...

Scientists show a new way to absorb electromagnetic radiation

A team of authors from MIPT, Kansas State University, and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have demonstrated that it is possible to fully absorb electromagnetic radiation using an anisotropic crystal. The observations are of fundamental...Show More Summary

Navy researchers recruit luminescent nanoparticles to image brain function

WASHINGTON - Research biologists, chemists and theoreticians at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), are on pace to develop the next generation of functional materials that could enable the mapping of the complex neural connections in the brain. Show More Summary

Coating cancels acoustic scattering from odd-shaped objects

Washington, D.C., Oct. 27, 2015 -- In a new twist, a team of researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory and the University of Texas at Austin has applied to acoustic waves the concept of "scattering cancellation," which hasShow More Summary

The Dark Web isn’t as revolutionary as you’d think

When the United States Naval Research Laboratory began development of The Onion Router (TOR) in the mid-1990’s they meant well. How could they have known it would eventually become a popular habitat for hackers, child pornographers and...Show More Summary

US Navy to Launch Folding-Fin Ground Attack Rocket on Scientific Mission

US Naval Research Laboratory, in cooperation with the University of Washington and NASA, are set to launch folding-fin ground attack rocket from the Norwegian launch facility above the Arctic Circle to simultaneously create and observe “dusty plasmas” in Earth’s outer atmosphere in order to understand how it disrupts radar and tracking systems.

The U.S. Navy is working on a drone that can fly and swim underwater

Always on the lookout for new and creative ways to gather information in hard to reach locations, the United States Naval Research Laboratory (USNRL) has quietly been developing a drone that can not only fly through the air, but also swim underwater. Show More Summary

Navy Researchers Use Clay To Create Bulletproof Glass

Researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have been able to use clay to create bulletproof glass, this is being considered as a major development in materials science. The researchers were able to do this following decades of research and development. Show More Summary

Next-gen temperature sensor developed to measure ocean dynamics

Temperature is one of the key variables in studying the ocean. A fiber-optic sensor developed by University of Nebraska-Lincoln engineers and the US Naval Research Laboratory can register significantly smaller temperature changes, roughly 30 times faster than existing commercial sensors.

Consequences of the federal travel clampdown: More costs

Staff at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington spent more than 9,000 hours during five months last year preparing and reviewing requests from its scientists and engineers to attend conferences and present research. The tab for taxpayers was $824,000. The Energy Department’s Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico spent $1.6 million to review similar […]
