Optical “tweezers” combine with X-rays to enable analysis of crystals in liquids

Argonne National Laboratory

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have developed a new technique that combines the power of microscale “tractor beams” with high-powered X-rays, enabling them to see and manipulate crystals freely floating in solution.

U.S. Department of Energy and Intel to deliver first exascale supercomputer

Argonne National Laboratory

Intel Corporation and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will deliver the first supercomputer with a performance of one exaFLOP in the United States. The system being developed at DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago — named “Aurora” — will be used to dramatically advance scientific research and discovery.

Scientists Track Patterns of Island Growth in Crystals

Argonne National Laboratory

In a new study from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, scientists have found that the seemingly random arrangement of islands that form to begin new layers during crystal growth can actually be very similar from layer to layer. The discovery may help scientists better understand of some of the mechanisms behind defect formation, as well as develop techniques to synthesize new types of crystals.

Researchers reverse the flow of time on IBM's quantum computer

Argonne National Laboratory

An international team of scientists led by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory explored the concept of reversing time in a first-of-its-kind experiment, managing to return a computer briefly to the past. The results, published March 13 in the journal Scientific Reports, suggest new paths for exploring the backward flow of time in quantum systems and present new possibilities for quantum computer program testing and error correction.

Students team with Argonne scientists and engineers to learn about STEM careers

Argonne National Laboratory

Students got a taste of teamwork during the 17th annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED) on Feb. 21 at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory. The event, attended by more than 100 eighth-grade girls from 40 area schools, paired the students up with Argonne scientists and engineers, who answered their questions, provided personal insights and guided them through a career expo.

Ultrathin and ultrafast: scientists pioneer new technique for two-dimensional material analysis

Argonne National Laboratory

Using a never-before-seen technique, scientists have found a new way to use some of the world’s most powerful X-rays to uncover how atoms move in a single atomic sheet in real time, opening up new possibilities for probing two-dimensional materials.
