The renowned synthetic biologist will be given $1 million in funding to support bioenergy and bioproduct innovation.
Astrophysicist Saul Perlmutter and climate scientist Inez Fung, both scientists at Berkeley Lab, have been appointed to the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), the White House announced today.
Having good room ventilation to dilute and disperse indoor air pollutants has long been recognized, and with the COVID-19 pandemic its importance has become all the more heightened. But new experiments by Berkeley Lab indoor air researchers show that certain circumstances will result in poor mixing of room air, meaning airborne contaminants may not be effectively dispersed and removed by building level ventilation.
Scientists have reported new clues to solving a cosmic conundrum: How the quark-gluon plasma – nature’s perfect fluid – evolved into the building blocks of matter during the birth of the early universe.
New research on plasma lensing at BELLA helps confirm laser plasma accelerators can be scaled up as BELLA Center pushes toward higher energies
Five-year, $12.5 million U.S. Department of Energy project will help pave the way for a nationwide quantum Internet
Wind energy continues to see strong growth, solid performance, and low prices in the U.S., according to a report released by the U.S. Department of Energy and prepared by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. With levelized costs of just over $30 per megawatt-hour (MWh) for newly built projects, the cost of wind is well below its grid-system, health, and climate benefits.
