Scientists and engineers at Fermilab and 21 U.S. universities have been assembling and testing a new pixel detector to replace the current one as part of the Compact Muon Solenoid upgrade.
Scientists have used a new X-ray diffraction technique called Bragg single-angle ptychography to get a clear picture of how planes of atoms shift and squeeze under stress.
Physicist Imène Goumiri has created a new system that will let scientists control the energy and rotation of plasma in real time in a doughnut-shaped machine known as a tokamak.
03.24.17 A new device, designed at PNNL using EMSL, shows what happens when electrode, electrolyte and active materials meet in energy storage technologies.
03.24.17 Chemists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory and their collaborators just released results from experiments and computational modeling studies that definitively identify the “active site” of a catalyst commonly used for making methanol from CO2.
03.23.17 Solar cells and photodetectors could soon be made from new types of materials based on semiconductor quantum dots, thanks to new insights based on ultrafast measurements capturing real-time photoconversion processes.
From the turn of the last century to today, scientists have explored why superconductors never lose current. Read More »

Researchers from the Carnegie Institute of Science, Uppsala University and the University of Chicago found that argon-doped hydrogen stayed in its molecular form even up to the highest pressures, unable to force hydrogen into a superconductive, metallic state.
The Kramer lab at Michigan State University has unveiled a sophisticated, user-friendly, and cheap scientific instrument to measure plant health and photosynthesis parameters.
New research challenges the prevailing theory that the unique nature of Earth’s iron was the result of how its core was formed billions of years ago.
The Office of Science (SC) is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States.
