Latest Brookhaven National Laboratory Stories
An international collaboration of scientists has reported a landmark calculation of the decay process of a kaon into two pions, using breakthrough techniques on some of the world's fastest supercomputers.
In the continual quest for better thermoelectric materials—which convert heat into electricity and vice versa—researchers have identified a liquid-like compound whose properties give it the potential to be even more efficient than traditional thermoelectrics.
Brookhaven National Laboratory completes Phase I of a major renovation to science laboratories in an effort to modernize their existing research facilities, including materials science and fuel
Computational studies aim to increase use of plant oils as renewable resource.
New multiferroic mechanism could lead to next-generation memory and sensing devices.
Researchers have built optical nanostructures that enable them to slow photons down and fully control light dispersion.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have helped to uncover the nanoscale structure of a novel form of carbon, contributing to an explanation of why this new material acts like a super-absorbent sponge when it comes to soaking up electric charge.
The biggest 3-D map of the distant universe ever made, using light from 14,000 quasars â€“ supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies billions of light years away â€“ has been constructed by scientists with the third Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III).
