Latest Brookhaven National Laboratory Stories
Detailed studies of one of the best-performing organic photovoltaic materials reveal an unusual bilayer lamellar structure that may help explain the material's superior performance at converting sunlight to electricity and guide the synthesis of new materials with even better properties.
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.
