RIKEN-BNL physicist Stefan Meinel receives Kenneth G. Wilson award for supercomputing calculations on the transformations of the beauty quark

Cold Electronics Help Scientists Spot Elusive ‘Ghost’ Particles

Nestled inside the massive MicroBooNE detector, part of a new neutrino experiment just getting underway at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory,...

NSLS-II Scientists Find Flexible Boundary Between Phases of Matter Within Supercritical...

Imagine a planet, a gas giant like Jupiter.  The biggest planet in our Solar System is composed mainly of helium and hydrogen, which make...

Stony Brook Research Team Receives NSF Grant to Create “Ceramic Cloth”...

A Stony Brook University research team has been awarded a $935,056 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop the continuous production of...

Unusual magnetic behavior observed at a material interface

An exotic kind of magnetic behavior, driven by the mere proximity of two materials, has been analyzed by a team of researchers at MIT...

Protective shells may boost silicon lithium-ion batteries

Lithium ions react with silicon to form a new compound, which causes the electrode to expand. Researchers found that flouroethylene carbonate molecules produce a...

Brookhaven Lab Study Explores Nanoscale Structure of Thin Films

The world’s newest and brightest synchrotron light source—the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory—has produced...

New Computer Model Could Explain how Simple Molecules Took First Step...

Nearly four billion years ago, the earliest precursors of life on Earth emerged. First small, simple molecules, or monomers, banded together to form larger,...

New Technique to Synthesize Nanostructured Nanowires

A new approach to self-assemble and tailor complex structures at the nanoscale, developed by an international collaboration led by the University of Cambridge and...

Solving mysteries of conductivity in polymers

Materials known as conjugated polymers have been seen as very promising candidates for electronics applications, including capacitors, photodiodes, sensors, organic light-emitting diodes, and thermoelectric...

First Scientific Publication from Data Collected at NSLS-II

Just weeks after the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) achieved first light, the team of scientists at the X-Ray Powder Diffraction (XPD) beamline...

Smashing Polarized Protons to Uncover Spin and Other Secrets

If you want to unravel the secrets of proton spin, put a "twist" in your colliding proton beams. This technique, tried and perfected at...
