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.

Faster, Cheaper, Better: A New Way to Synthesize DNA

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) based at Berkeley Lab have pioneered a new way to synthesize DNA sequences through a creative use of enzymes that promises to be faster, cheaper, and more accurate. DNA synthesis is a fundamental tool in the rapidly growing field of synthetic biology, in which organisms can be engineered to do things like decompose plastic and manufacture biofuels and medicines. This discovery could dramatically accelerate the pace of scientific discovery.

Experiments at Berkeley Lab Help Trace Interstellar Dust Back to Solar System’s Formation

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Experiments conducted at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory helped to confirm that samples of interplanetary particles – collected from Earth’s upper atmosphere and believed to originate from comets – contain dust leftover from the initial formation of the solar system.

Non-Crystal Clarity: Scientists Find Ordered Magnetic Patterns in Disordered Magnetic Material

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

A team of scientists working at Berkeley Lab has confirmed a special property known as “chirality” – which potentially could be exploited to transmit and store data in a new way – in nanometers-thick samples of multilayer materials that have a disordered structure.

Berkeley Lab Paves the Way for Real-time Ptychographic Data Streaming

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

What began nearly a decade ago as a Berkeley Lab Laboratory-Directed Research and Development (LDRD) proposal is now a reality, and it is already changing the way scientists run experiments at the Advanced Light Source—and, eventually, other light sources across the U.S. Department of Energy complex—by enabling real-time streaming of ptychographic image data in a production environment.
