Dark Energy Instrument’s Lenses See the Night Sky for the First Time

On April 1, the dome of the Mayall Telescope near Tucson, Arizona, opened to the night sky, and starlight poured through the assembly of...

When semiconductors stick together, materials go quantum

Two-dimensional (2D) materials, which are only one atom thick, resemble nanosized building blocks that can be stacked arbitrarily to frame little gadgets. At the...

First complete picture of lithium-ion battery performance

The problem with today's commercial batteries is they release about half of the lithium ions they contain. One solution on this is to cram cathodes with...

New detector to count 2 to 5 million gamma rays per second

Heather Crawford, a staff scientist in the Nuclear Science Division at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, along with her colleagues...

Continuously emitting microlasers with nanoparticle-coated beads

Now it is possible to convert nanoparticle-coated microscopic beads into lasers, thanks to the new technique demonstrated by Berkeley scientists. The technique opens up...

Valleytronics discovery could help extend limits of Moore’s law

A new study by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and Shuren Lin of UC Berkeley’s Department of Materials Science and...

New sugar-coated nanosheets to selectively target pathogens

A team led by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a process for creating ultrathin,...

Scientists print all-liquid 3D structures

Researchers from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have built up an approach to print 3D structures made completely out...

Exposure to thirdhand smoke increases lung cancer risk

According to a recent study by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, brief exposure to thirdhand smoke is associated with low body weight...

Scientists confirm century-old speculation on the chemistry of a high-performance battery

The study conducted by the researchers at Natron Energy, a Palo Alto, California-based battery technology company along with the researchers at Berkeley Lab and New...

Ultrathin Invisibility Cloak makes 3D Objects Disappear

Objects are apparent to us because a small cut of light that strike them is spread in the direction of our retinas. Invisibility cloak...
