Splitting Water: Nanoscale Imaging Yields Key Insights

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

In the quest to realize artificial photosynthesis to convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into fuel – just as plants do – researchers need to not only identify materials to efficiently perform photoelectrochemical water splitting, but also to understand why a certain material may or may not work. Now scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have pioneered a technique that uses nanoscale imaging to understand how local, nanoscale properties can affect a material’s macroscopic performance.

Berkeley Lab Team Wins Data-Driven Scavenger Hunt for Simulated Nuclear Materials

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Competing in a fictitious high-stakes scenario, a group of scientists at Berkeley Lab bested two dozen other teams in a months-long, data-driven scavenger hunt for simulated radioactive materials in a virtual urban environment. The goal of this event was both to improve the detection methods that could be applied to actual threats involving nuclear materials, and to create a platform to virtually vet out these methods.

New Simulations Break Down Potential Impact of a Major Quake by Building Location and Size

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

A team from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, both U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national labs, is leveraging powerful supercomputers to portray the impact of high-frequency ground motion on thousands of representative different-sized buildings spread out across the California region.

Reproducibility Matters

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

An international team reported on the results of a large-scale field study to identify the core microbial community for the maize rhizosphere. The work partially replicates earlier trials to identify soil microbes that colonize plants and which can be associated with particular traits.

Separate But Together: Ultrathin Membrane Both Isolates and Couples Living and Non-Living Catalysts

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Bioelectrochemical systems combine the best of both worlds – microbial cells with inorganic materials – to make fuels and other energy-rich chemicals with unrivaled efficiency. Yet technical difficulties have kept them impractical anywhere but in a lab. Now researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a novel nanoscale membrane that could address these issues and pave the way for commercial scale-up.

Berkeley Lab Researchers Use Machine Learning to Search Science Data

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Researchers at Berkeley Lab are currently developing a web-based search engine for scientific data, called Science Search. The team is also building innovative machine learning tools to pull contextual information from scientific datasets and automatically generate missing metadata tags for each raw and simulated data files. As a proof-of-concept, the team is working with staff at the Molecular Foundry, to demonstrate the concepts of Science Search on the images captured by the facility's instruments.

Scientists Create Continuously Emitting Microlasers With Nanoparticle-Coated Beads

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Researchers have found a way to convert nanoparticle-coated microscopic beads into lasers smaller than red blood cells. These microlasers, which convert infrared light into light at higher frequencies, are among the smallest continuously emitting lasers of their kind ever reported and can constantly and stably emit light for hours at a time, even when submerged in biological fluids such as blood serum.
