A breakthrough image captured by scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley proves solid state of electrons predicted more than 90 years ago.
Skyrmions are little vortexes or whirlpools created by the spins of electrons when magnetic fields are applied to certain magnetic materials. In a series of recent studies, scientists at Berkeley Lab, SLAC, Stanford, and UC San Diego used an X-ray laser to discover new aspects of skyrmion behavior.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley have developed a cheap and efficient way to produce pure titanium metal. Their approach is scalable for commercial production, and produces an easily recycled product.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab and the Technical University of Munich have developed a new technique that allows researchers to synthesize a perovskite solar material and test its performance at the same time.
Researchers from Berkeley Lab’s Center for Novel Pathways to Quantum Coherence in Materials are developing new pathways to create and protect quantum coherence. Doing so will enable exquisitely sensitive measurement and information processing devices that function at ambient or even extreme conditions.
A new process combining infrared light analysis and machine learning shows potential to break barriers in disease detection.
-By Emily Scott Ten years ago, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory announced the opening of a brand new, 15,000-square-foot facility full of stainless steel state-of-the-art bioprocessing equipment – what we now know as the Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts Process Development Unit, or ABPDU, was officially open for business. Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy
With a simple stretch, a thin semiconductor material can achieve near 100% light-emission efficiency at all brightness levels. The discovery, reported by scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley in the journal Science, has implications for energy-efficient mobile devices and lighting applications.
U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm visited the Bay Area on Friday, Aug. 20, making a two-hour stop at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for discussions with Lab scientists and leaders and tours of two of the Lab’s five national scientific user facilities.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley have taken the clearest picture yet of electronic particles that make up a mysterious magnetic state called quantum spin liquid. The achievement could facilitate the development of superfast quantum computers and energy-efficient superconductors.
