All seventeen U.S. national laboratories and many prominent publishers, journals, and other organizations in scientific publishing announced today the beginning of a partnership to support name change requests from researchers on past published papers.
The Berkeley Lab Laser Accelerator (BELLA) Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed and tested an innovative optical system to precisely measure and control the position and pointing angle of high-power laser beams with unprecedented accuracy.
Since buildings consume 75% of electricity in the U.S., they offer great potential for saving energy and reducing the demands on our rapidly changing electric grid. But how much, where, and through which strategies could better management of building energy use actually impact the electricity system?
Scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley have created a one-atom thin magnet that operates at room temperature. The ultrathin magnet could lead to new applications in computing and electronics, and new tools for the study of quantum physics.
Scientists from three national labs have published a comprehensive study that – alongside other recent, complementary studies of coronavirus proteins and genetics – represents the first step toward developing treatments for COVID-19.
Researchers at Stanford and Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Foundry have developed virus-killing molecules called peptoids. The technology could make possible an emerging category of antiviral drugs that could treat everything from herpes and COVID-19 to the common cold.
Companies like Purple Air and IQAir, with air pollution sensors that cost under $300, have brought air quality monitoring to the masses. But when Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientist Tom Kirchstetter looked at Purple Air’s map last year during wildfire season, he noticed a big hole in Richmond, a city of 110,000 to the north of Berkeley.
Just weeks after its official unveiling, the Perlmutter supercomputer at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) has earned the number 5 position in the Top500 List with a performance benchmark of 64.6 Pflop/s and is among the top 10 in two other Top500 benchmarks.
Schrödinger’s cat is alive and well … as a guiding principle in modern quantum computers! Check out the newest episode of our podcast, A Day In The Half Life, to hear what’s on the horizon and get a quick quantum physics 101.
A research team led by scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley has developed a nanoparticle composite that grows into 3D crystals. The scientists say that the material could lead to new technologies that are 3D-grown rather than 3D-printed.
