Study Recommends Strong Role for National Labs in ‘Second Laser Revolution’

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

A new study calls for the U.S. to step up its laser R&D efforts to better compete with major overseas efforts to build large, high-power laser systems, and notes progress and milestones at the Department of Energy’s Berkeley Lab Laser Accelerator (BELLA) Center and other sites.

Valleytronics Discovery Could Extend Limits of Moore's Law

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Research appearing today in Nature Communications finds useful new information-handling potential in samples of tin(II) sulfide (SnS), a candidate "valleytronics" transistor material that might one day enable chipmakers to pack more computing power onto microchips.

Tiny Distortions in Universe’s Oldest Light Reveal Clearer Picture of Strands in Cosmic Web

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Scientists have decoded faint distortions in the patterns of the universe’s earliest light to map huge tubelike structures invisible to our eyes – known as filaments – that serve as superhighways for delivering matter to dense hubs such as galaxy clusters.

Freedom and Flexibility: Thinking Outside the Cell for Functional Genomics

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

JGI has developed capabilities to move beyond generating a DNA sequence to understanding gene functions. Through the JGI’s Emerging Technologies Opportunity Program, researchers aim to develop an optimized cell-free platform to help speed up the design-build-test-analyze cycle in synthetic biology.

First Direct Observations of Methane’s Increasing Greenhouse Effect at the Earth’s Surface

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Scientists have directly measured the increasing greenhouse effect of methane at the Earth’s surface for the first time. A research team from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) tracked a rise in the warming effect of methane – one of the most important greenhouse gases for the Earth’s atmosphere – over a 10-year period at a DOE field observation site in northern Oklahoma.

Scientists Develop Sugar-Coated Nanosheets to Selectively Target Pathogens

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

A team led by Berkeley Lab scientists has developed a process for creating ultrathin, self-assembling sheets of synthetic materials that can function like designer flypaper in selectively binding with viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. The new platform could potentially be used to inactivate or detect pathogens.

Berkeley Lab Scientists Print All-Liquid 3-D Structures

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Scientists from the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a way to print 3-D structures composed entirely of liquids. Using a modified 3-D printer, they injected threads of water into silicone oil — sculpting tubes made of one liquid within another liquid.

Fleet of Automated Electric Taxis Could Deliver Environmental and Energy Benefits

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and UC Berkeley decided to analyze the cost, energy, and environmental implications of a fleet of self-driving electric vehicles operating in Manhattan. They found that shared automated electric vehicles, or SAEVs, could get the job done at a lower cost – by an order of magnitude – than present-day taxis while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption.
