From Face Recognition to Phase Recognition: Neural Network Captures Atomic-Scale Rearrangements

Brookhaven National Laboratory

UPTON, NY—If you want to understand how a material changes from one atomic-level configuration to another, it’s not enough to capture snapshots of before-and-after structures. It’d be better to track details of the transition as it happens. Same goes for studying catalysts, materials that speed up chemical reactions by bringing key ingredients together; the crucial action is often triggered by subtle atomic-scale shifts at intermediate stages.

New Technique Reveals Details of Forest Fire Recovery

Brookhaven National Laboratory

UPTON, NY—Do you know someone who’s so caught up in the details of a problem that they “can’t see the forest for the trees?” Scientists seeking to understand how forests recover from wildfires sometimes have the opposite problem. Conventional satellite systems that survey vast tracts of land burned by forest fires provide useful, general information, but can gloss over important details and lead scientists to conclude that a forest has recovered when it’s still in the early stages of recovery.
