A team of researchers working at Berkeley Lab has demonstrated infrared imaging of an organic semiconductor known for its electronics capabilities, revealing key nanoscale details about the nature of its crystal features and defects that affect its performance.
A new planetarium show, produced in part by Berkeley Lab’s Michael Barnett, is designed to immerse audiences in the search for dark matter, which we have so far detected only through its gravitational effects.
LUX-ZEPLIN, an ultrasensitive dark matter detector, has cleared a major approval milestone and is on track to begin its mile-deep hunt for theoretical particles known as WIMPs in 2020.
Researchers have observed, for the first time, an exotic 3-D racetrack for electrons in ultrathin slices of a tiny crystal they made at Berkeley Lab.
Edward Joseph Lofgren, a pioneering Berkeley Lab physicist who was a close associate of E.O. Lawrence and worked on the Manhattan Project, died Sept. 6 at age 102.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab and Cornell University have successfully paired ferroelectric and ferrimagnetic materials so that their alignment can be controlled with a small electric field at near room temperatures. The achievement could open doors to ultra low-power microprocessors, storage devices and next-generation electronics.
To resolve open questions about water transport in plants and how they respond to stress such as drought, science teams from around the world gathered at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley for an intensive round of experiments.
Catherine “Reba” Siero, an accelerator operator at Berkeley Lab, has worked for more than two decades at its 88-Inch Cyclotron and earlier worked in particle-beam-based cancer treatments and biology research at the lab.
Scientists can now directly probe a previously hard-to-see layer of chemistry, which forms in a narrow band where liquid meets solid, thanks to a unique X-ray toolkit developed at Berkeley Lab.
A prototype system that will test a planned array of 5,000 robots for a sky-mapping instrument is taking shape at Berkeley Lab. Dubbed ProtoDESI, the scaled-down, 10-robot system will run through a series of tests on a telescope in Arizona from August-September.
