Scientists at Berkeley Lab have uncovered a surprising property that turns an artificial photosynthesis device into a self-improving hydrogen fuel machine.
David Arthur Shirley, former director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and professor of chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, died on March 29, 2021, of age-related illness. Shirley was a pioneer of electron spectroscopy, a teacher, a mentor, and an
Cameron Geddes Appointed Director of Berkeley Lab’s Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics DivisionMarch 29th, 2021
Following an international search, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has named Cameron Geddes, an award-winning scientist who is internationally known for his work on laser-plasma accelerators, to serve as Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics (ATAP) Division Director.
At the Molecular Foundry, scientists recruited a world-leading microscope to capture atomic-resolution, high-speed images of gold atoms self-organizing, falling apart, and then reorganizing many times before settling into a stable, ordered crystal.
A Q&A with Berkeley Lab scientist Eric Sundstrom on a technology to turn electrons to bioproducts
Scientists at Berkeley Lab have demonstrated how to image samples of heavy elements as small as a single nanogram. The new approach will help scientists advance new technologies for medical imaging and cancer therapies.
Researchers have channeled the universe’s earliest light – a relic of the universe’s formation known as the cosmic microwave background (CMB) – to solve a missing-matter mystery and learn new things about galaxy formation. Their work could also help us to better understand dark energy and test Einstein’s theory of general relativity by providing new details about the rate at which galaxies are moving toward us or away from us.
