A sharper focus: New computational technique resolves compressed X-ray data

Argonne National Laboratory

With high-energy X-rays, such as those that will be produced by the upgrade to Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source comes a potential hitch — the more penetrating the X-rays are, the higher a likelihood that researchers could run into problems with the image data. In a new study, researchers at Argonne have found a novel way to combat this image degradation.

Who’s using the User Facilities?

Argonne National Laboratory

Whether studying the fundamental behavior of metals or reconstructing the evolution of the universe, researchers are finding the resources to accomplish their goals at one or a combination of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facilities. Argonne is home to five of these world-class facilities and plays host to several thousand users each year. This article highlights just a few of those users and their relationship with Argonne’s User Facilities.

Department of Energy awards $4.6 million to Argonne to support collaborations with industry

Argonne National Laboratory

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced more than $24 million in funding for 77 projects aimed at advancing commercialization of promising energy technologies and strengthening partnerships between DOE’s National Laboratories and private-sector companies to deploy important technologies to the marketplace. DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory received $4.6 million to fund 12 projects across four research divisions.

The best of both worlds: how to solve real problems on modern quantum computers

Argonne National Laboratory

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory, along with researchers at Clemson University and Fujitsu Laboratories of America, have developed hybrid algorithms to run on size-limited quantum machines and have demonstrated them for practical applications.

Newswise: Giving nanowires a DNA-like twist

Article ID: 715554

Giving nanowires a DNA-like twist

Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne National Laboratory played a critical role in the discovery of a DNA-like twisted crystal structure created with a germanium sulfide nanowire, also known as a “van der Waals material.” Researchers can tailor these nanowires in many different ways — twist periods from two to twenty micrometers, lengths up to hundreds of micrometers, and radial dimensions from several hundred nanometers to about ten micrometers. By this means, they can adjust the electrical and optical properties to optimize performance for different applications.

Confirmation of old theory leads to new breakthrough in superconductor science

Argonne National Laboratory

Scientists at Harvard have developed a superconductor that is only one nanometer thick. By studying fluctuations in this ultra-thin material as it transitions into superconductivity, the scientists gained insight into the processes that drive superconductivity. They used the new technology to confirm a 23-year-old theory of superconductors developed by scientist Valerii Vinokur from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory. Their work could have applications in virtually any technology that uses electricity.

U.S. Department of Energy Renews Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials

Argonne National Laboratory

The Department of Energy has announced that, over the next four years, it will invest $32 million to accelerate the design of new materials through use of high-performance computing. One of the seven funded projects is the Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials (MICCoM), founded in 2015 and led by the Materials Science Division at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory. This center draws co-investigators from the University of Chicago, University of Notre Dame, and University of California, Davis.

Practice makes perfect

Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne researchers are beginning to employ Bayesian methods in developing optimal models of thermodynamic properties. Research available online for the September 2019 issue of the International Journal of Engineering Science focused on hafnium (Hf), a metal emerging as a key component in computer electronics.
