Bringing a Hidden Superconducting State to Light

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Using high-intensity pulses of infrared light, scientists found evidence of superconductivity associated with charge “stripes” in a material above the temperature at which it begins to transmit electricity without resistance—a finding that could help them design better high-temperature superconductors.

Narrowing in on the W Boson Mass

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)—the world’s largest particle collider, hosted at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory—have precisely measured the mass of the W boson, a particle that plays a weighty role in a delicate balancing act of the quantum universe.

Surprising Result Shocks Scientists Studying Spin

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists analyzing results of spinning protons striking different sized atomic nuclei at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) found an odd directional preference in the production of neutrons that switches sides as the size of the nuclei increases.The results offer new insight into the mechanisms affecting particle production in these collisions.

CFN Scientist Spotlight: Gregory Doerk Guides the Self-Assembly of Materials to Make Diverse Nanoscale Patterns

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Some materials have the unique ability to self-assemble into organized molecular patterns and structures. Materials scientist Gregory Doerk of the Electronic Nanomaterials Group at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN)—a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory—takes advantage of this ability in materials called block copolymers.

Accelerating the Self-Assembly of Nanoscale Patterns for Next-Generation Materials

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists have come up with a way to massively speed up the ordering process for self-assembling materials. The resulting ultra-small, well-ordered patterns could be used in the fabrication of microelectronics, antireflective surfaces, magnetic data storage systems, and fluid-flow devices.

Final Check as Instruments Set Sail to Track Aerosols Over Southern Ocean

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Imagine spending several weeks aboard a ship traversing the stormiest ocean on Earth, climbing each day to the highest deck to check on scientific instruments mounted inside a windowless, 20-foot shipping container. As you steady yourself against the rolling seas by wedging your body between instrument racks, you might wonder why you’re not sitting poolside on a tropical cruise instead.
