After serving four years as Berkeley Lab’s Associate Director for Energy Technologies, Ramamoorthy Ramesh will be returning to his research in ultra low-power electronics while also helping to lead a major Berkeley Lab research initiative in next-generation, energy-efficient microelectronics. This new initiative has been dubbed “Beyond Moore’s Law,” as it seeks the solution to what
Two visiting poets – Kate Greene, a former Berkeley Lab science writer who is an author, essayist, journalist, and poet; and fellow poet, writer, and science enthusiast Anastasios Karnazes – drew inspiration from an overnight stay at Berkeley Lab’s 88-Inch Cyclotron from June 14-15.
Erica Woodburn, a research scientist in Berkeley Lab’s Earth and Environmental Sciences Area, is developing a new modeling technique that employs remote sensing technology to understand the effects of climate change on California’s groundwater supply.
Erica Woodburn first fell in love with hydrogeology as an undergraduate majoring in geology. Today, she is a research scientist in the Lab’s Earth and Environmental Sciences Area.
Pick your favorite photos from the Berkeley Lab Physics Photowalk event in May. We will announce the People’s Choice winners in August.
Researchers at the Berkeley Lab now have access to a unique new microscope that combines atomic-scale imaging capabilities with the ability to observe real-world sample properties and behavior in real time.
VIDEO: A recap of the Berkeley Lab Physics Photowalk. (Credit: Marilyn Chung/Berkeley Lab) Dozens of photographers visited the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) on Wednesday, May 16 – coinciding with the International Day of Light – to creatively capture scenes of science at Lab facilities including the Advanced Light Source,
Just five years after joining Berkeley Lab as a Physics Division fellow, Zach Marshall is co-leading an international team of researchers in search of supersymmetry — the theory that every known particle has a “superpartner” particle. Now with funding from an early career award announced last November, Marshall and his team are building a powerful super-scheduling platform that will help particle physicists process more data faster without investing in costly new computing infrastructure.
Tracy Mattox, a researcher in the Molecular Foundry’s Inorganic Nanostructures Facility at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), is an expert in colloidal inorganic syntheses. If you’re not sure what that is, you may want to check out one of Mattox’s side projects — she’s authored an e-book series featuring “Nancy
Several fields of research have sprung up around the chemical drivers, called catalysts, at work in many industrial processes – including those that boost the production of fuels, fertilizers, and foods – and there is a growing interest in coordinating these research activities to create new, hybrid catalysts with enhanced performance, say researchers at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley.
(Adapted from Imperial College London’s news release) Researchers have measured CO2 emissions from fossil fuel use in California and compared them to reported emissions. This is the first time fossil fuel emissions have been independently checked for such a large area. Carbon dioxide (CO2) from fossil fuel combustion is the primary driver of climate change,
