Copper that was once bound with oxygen is better at converting CO2 into renewable fuels than copper that was never bound to oxygen, according to Berkeley Lab and Caltech scientists. They say it’s better to have had something special and lost it than to have never had it at all – who would have thought that holds true for metal oxides within solar fuel catalysts?
Natalie Roe, who joined Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) as a postdoctoral fellow in 1989 and has served as Physics Division director since 2012, has been named the Lab’s Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for the Physical Sciences Area. Her appointment was approved by the University of California today and was effective July 1, 2020. The announcement follows an international search.
Berkeley Lab researchers led the analysis of particle collider data from Brookhaven Lab that provides new insight into how particles called quarks combine to form hadrons, which are essential in the makeup of ordinary matter.
Researchers across the world have already amassed tons of info about COVID-19, and learn more every day. Now, Berkeley Lab experts are developing a platform that puts all this valuable knowledge in one place, and leverages machine learning to make new discoveries.
Scientists Successfully Demonstrate a New Experiment in the Search for Theorized ‘Neutrinoless’ ProcessJuly 13th, 2020
Berkeley Lab-affiliated researchers played a leading role in analyzing data for a demonstration experiment in France that has achieved record precision for a specialized detector material.
A Berkeley Lab-led research team’s surprising discovery could lead to new electronic materials that surpass the limitations imposed by Moore’s Law, which predicted in 1975 that the number of transistors packed into a silicon computer chip would double every two years.
