Latest Brookhaven National Laboratory Stories
UBC and TRIUMF physicists have proposed a unified explanation for dark matter and the so-called baryon asymmetry--the apparent imbalance of matter with positive baryon charge and antimatter with negative baryon charge in the Universe.
Discovery of mechanism sheds light on how zinc â€” essential to the growth of all living organisms â€” enters cells.
Stop-and-go driving can wear on your nerves, but it really does a number on the precious platinum that drives reactions in automotive fuel cells.
Scientists have fabricated transparent thin films capable of absorbing light and generating electric charge over a relatively large area.
A study at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory has demonstrated that a molecule â€œtaggedâ€ with a radioactive form of carbon can be used to image aromatase, an enzyme responsible for the production of estrogen, in the human brain.
A new source of ions will soon be the starting point for the beams entering two major research facilities at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory - the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC - http://www.bnl.gov/rhic), where physicists are recreating conditions of the early universe to learn more about the forces that hold matter together, and the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory (NSRL: http://www.bnl.gov/medical/NASA/NSRL_description.asp), where scientists study...
