Navigational View of the Brain Thanks to Powerful X-Rays

APS.synch.jpg

Imagine Google Earth with only the street view and a far-away satellite view but not much of a map view. Brain imaging, for the most part, has been missing just that, and a lot of research on how the brain computes happens on that level. New imaging tackles this special view of the brain with the highest-energy X-rays in the country, generated at a synchrotron, that illuminate thick sections of a mouse brain.

The Puzzle to Plugging the Worst Natural Gas Release in History

AlisoCanyonteam.jpg

By the time Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) scientists Barry Freifeld and Curt Oldenburg visited the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility in December 2015, the SS-25 well blowout had been leaking natural gas into the air for more than six weeks. The notoriously strong winds at Aliso Canyon carried the natural gas and its added odorant to the nearby Porter Ranch neighborhood, leading to thousands of families evacuating their homes.

Force Field Analysis Provides Clues to Protein-Ion Interaction

JCP031791-Ren-AMOEBAforcefield_image1.jpg

The importance of proteins and metal ion interactions is well understood, but the mechanistic interactions between the two are still far from a complete picture. Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin, are working to quantitatively describe protein-ion interactions using what is called an atomic multipole optimized energetics for biomolecular applications force field. They describe their work in this week’s The Journal of Chemical Physics.

New Method to Detect Spin Current in Quantum Materials Unlocks Potential for Alternative Electronics

Spin-polarized_4-probe_STM_ORNL_2.jpg

A new method that precisely measures the mysterious behavior and magnetic properties of electrons flowing across the surface of quantum materials could open a path to next-generation electronics. A team of scientists has developed an innovative microscopy technique to detect the spin of electrons in topological insulators, a new kind of quantum material that could be used in applications such as spintronics and quantum computing.
