Researchers navigating ways to avoid aircraft icing

Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) think they are on the path to giving aircraft a way to avoid potentially hazardous icing conditions from a safe distance.

NRL detects opposite spin in topological insulator surface states

Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have reported the first direct comparison of the spin polarization generated in the topologically protected Dirac states of a topological insulator (TI) bismuth selenide (Bi2Se3) and the trivial 2-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) states at the surface of indium arsenide (InAs).

Novel monolayer ferroelectric hybrid structures

Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Materials Science and Technology Division, have demonstrated that the intensity and spectral composition of the photoluminescence emitted from a single monolayer of tungsten disulphide...Show More Summary

Spin filtering at room temperature with graphene

An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have reported the first demonstration of metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices—spin is a fundamental property of electrons, in addition to charge, that can be used to transmit, process and store data.

NRL completes first flight of UAV with custom hydrogen fuel cell

Researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's chemistry and tactical electronic warfare divisions completed the first flight of the Ion Tiger unmanned air vehicle with a new hydrogen-powered fuel cell built in-house.

Polish Authorities Demand British Law Enforcement Interrogate Tor Exit Node Operator About Information He Doesn't Have

7 months agoIndustries / Law : Techdirt

As numerous posts on Techdirt attest, the authorities really don't like Tor, even though the Onion routing system was developed by the US Naval Research Laboratory, not some terrorist hacker group. The latest jurisdiction to misunderstand...Show More Summary

NRL astrophysicist probes theory of black-hole accretion

WASHINGTON -- Utilizing the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), one of the most powerful telescopes in the world, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) astrophysicist Dr. Tracy Clarke and an international team of researchers...Show More Summary

Seawater Carbon Capture Process Receives US Patent

The Electrolytic Cation Exchange Module (E-CEM), developed at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), provides the Navy the capability to produce raw materials

Seawater Carbon Capture Process Produces Fuel Stock

A method to extract carbon dioxide and hydrogen from seawater has been patented by the US Naval Research Laboratory.

NRL develops new low-defect method to nitrogen dope graphene resulting in tunable bandstructure

WASHINGTON - An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Electronics Science and Technology and Materials Science and Technology Divisions, has demonstrated hyperthermal ion implantation (HyTII)...Show More Summary

USN Research Lab Develops CASA to Film Intercepts of US Spy Planes | HELMTTs Destroy Laptops with Lasers | Boeing Hopes to Persuade Denmark on Super Hornets

Americas The US Naval Research Laboratory “has developed a prototype” Common Airborne Situational Awareness (CASA) camera pod to film Chinese and Russian intercepts of US spy planes. Spy planes under the Pacific Command have been recently involved in a number of increasingly reckless intercepts by Russian and Chinese fighters; however, cameras onboard are unable to […]

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
