Researchers develop new acoustic sensor for chemical and biological detection

Testing for ovarian cancer or the presence of a particular chemical could be almost as simple as distinguishing an F sharp from a B...

Adjusting earth’s thermostat, with caution

A vast majority of scientists believe that the Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate and that human activity is almost certainly the dominant...

Readying the neural network

Extrasynaptic receptors are essential for producing activity in this striatal neuron. Neurons were recorded from brain tissue slices in three different conditions. In graph...

Shifts in states of matter: It’s complicated

The process of phase changes -- those transitions between states of matter -- is more complex than previously thought. A team of Lawrence Livermore researchers...

ORNL technology transfer continues strong upward trend

  Mike Paulus, director of Technology Transfer, attributes the growth in large part to the Technology Innovation Program, Bridging the Gap and SPARK! These programs...

Study Reveals Molecular Structure of Water at Gold Electrodes

When a solid material is immersed in a liquid, the liquid immediately next to its surface differs from that of the bulk liquid at the molecular level. This interfacial layer is critical to our understanding of a diverse set of phenomena from biology to materials science.
