Berkeley Lab scientist Antoine Snijders helped test a new sanitizing device that appears promising for disinfecting personal protective equipment so that it can be reused longer, which could reduce cost and ease supply chain strain.
An international research team led by scientists at Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory developed a new apparatus at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source (ALS) that could help improve the efficiency of hydrogen fuel generation.
A UC Berkeley-led research team in collaboration with Berkeley Lab has discovered a way to simplify the removal of toxic metals, like mercury and boron, during desalination to produce clean water, while at the same time potentially capturing valuable metals, such as gold.
Technology developed at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley shows a big drop in infant mortality in Rwanda hospitals.
Berkeley Lab has developed a cuff-based technology to monitor both endothelial function and endothelium-independent vasodilation. Studies on human subjects have verified that the cuff-based method is 37% more sensitive to arterial relaxation than brachial artery imaging.
Researchers from MIT, Oxford, Arizona State, JPL, and Berkeley Lab detected the signatures of ancient magnetic fields imprinted in a meteorite’s ferromagnetic grains at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source (ALS).
An X-ray instrument at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source contributed to a battery study that used an innovative approach to machine learning to speed up the learning curve about a process that shortens the life of fast-charging lithium batteries.
Researchers from Caltech, UC Berkeley, and the Berkeley Synchrotron Infrared Structural Biology Imaging Program (BSISB) reported a more efficient way to collect “high-dimensional” infrared images – where each pixel contains rich physical and chemical information. The microscopy experiments were carried out at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source.
Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign used Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source to probe changes in the electronic properties of a 2D semiconductor, titanium telluride, as the thickness of a substrate, platinum telluride, was increased.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley have developed an atomically thin device that could turn your smartphone into a supersmart gas sensor.
