Argonne maps out virtual world for U.S. military

Argonne National Laboratory

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory converted 1,000 pages of CENTCOM military information into a 3D digital visualization that allows users to immerse themselves in the data using virtual reality (VR) headsets, discovering relationships and highlights by wandering through a simulated physical space.

ORNL-led collaboration solves a beta-decay puzzle with advanced nuclear models

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

An international collaboration including scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory solved a 50-year-old puzzle that explains why beta decays of atomic nuclei are slower than what is expected based on the beta decays of free neutrons. The findings, published in Nature Physics, fill a longstanding gap in physicists’ understanding of beta decay, an important process stars use to create heavier elements, and emphasize the need to include subtle effects—or more realistic physics—when predicting certain nuclear processes.

Researchers Flood Boundaries of Chemistry

University of California San Diego

The Paesani Research Group works to collect data on the properties of materials like water, apply it to machine learning, optimize the material through modifications based on simulations and then synthesize an ideal material that could be used, for example, to extract water from the atmosphere.

Birth of Massive Black Holes in the Early Universe Revealed

Georgia Institute of Technology

An international research team has shown that when galaxies assemble extremely rapidly -- and sometimes violently -- that can lead to the formation of very massive black holes. In these rare galaxies, normal star formation is disrupted and black hole formation takes over.

Meet Raffaele Miceli: Using Math and Physics to Build Visualizations for Discovery Science

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Raffaele Miceli has been interning on and off at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory over the course of nearly eight years, most recently tackling problems of quantum systems. Under the supervision of his mentor, Michael McGuigan of the Computational Science Initiative (CSI), Miceli has been creating plots and figures to help communicate the results of complex calculations — a task called data visualization.
