Berkeley Lab’s Erika Suzuki tied for first place in a September competition that featured technology pitches to an audience that included tech-transfer experts and investors. Her presentation focused on a Lab-developed mobile platform for finding and mapping radioactive and nuclear materials.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab have revealed how atomic defects emerge in TMDs (transition metal dichalcogenides), and how those defects shape the 2D material’s electronic properties. Their findings could provide a versatile yet targeted platform for designing 2D materials for quantum information science.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab have demonstrated how a powerful electron microscopy technique can provide direct insight into the performance of any material – from strong metallic glass to flexible semiconducting films – by pinpointing specific atomic “neighborhoods.”
Berkeley Lab researchers are pushing the boundaries of electron microscopy by exploring the exciting new frontier of cold microscopes.
Berkeley Lab computer scientists are working with Caltrans to use high performance computing and machine learning to help improve real-time decision making when traffic incidents occur.
Quentin Riffard, a project scientist for the LUX-ZEPLIN dark matter detection experiment that is now being installed at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, shares his experiences in researching dark matter in this Q&A.
A Q&A with Berkeley Lab indoor air scientists on protecting homes, schools, and other buildings, from air pollution during wildfires.
Many of the systems that provide services or products we use daily, such as the electrical grid, oil and gas pipelines, vehicles, and manufacturing plants, are examples of cyberphysical systems – systems that integrate computing and networking with one or more physical components. Computer security specialist Sean Peisert and a team of researchers at Berkeley Lab are helping ensure that these systems stay secure from cyberattacks.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab are using high-performance computing systems to better predict how structures will respond to an earthquake along one of the Bay Area’s most dangerous faults.
Barbara Jacak, director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Nuclear Science Division since 2015, has been named a 2019 Distinguished Scientist Fellow by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
