Latest Brookhaven National Laboratory Stories
One big challenge in converting plants to biofuels is that the very same molecules that keep plants standing up make it hard to break them down.
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...
Materialâ€™s fluctuating response to a magnetic field could lead to switchable superconducting wires.
Findings reveal characteristics of â€œhidden orderâ€ in unusual uranium compound and demonstrate new method for investigating long-standing physics problems.
New findings will help scientists understand how plants respond to light.
