With the Advanced Light Source Berkeley Lab scientists explore the electronic structure of graphene in regions never before tested by experiment Graphene, a sheet of carbon only a single atom thick, was an object of theoretical speculation long before it was actually made. Theory predicts extraordinary properties for graphene, but testing the predictions against experimental results is often challenging. Now researchers using the Advanced Light Source (ALS) at the U.S. Department of Energy's...

Scientists at UC Santa Barbara have developed new methods for studying how environmental factors and climate affect giant kelp forest ecosystems at unprecedented spatial and temporal scales. The scientists merged data collected underwater by UCSB divers with satellite images of giant kelp canopies taken by the Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper. The findings are published in the feature article of the May 16 issue of Marine Ecology Progress Series. In this marriage of marine ecology and satellite...

Scientists reported on Wednesday that they have sequenced the entire genetic code of 38 multiple myeloma patients, and have uncovered the most likely genetic causes of the aggressive blood cancer. The work, carried out by 21 institutions in the U.S. and Canada, offers the most comprehensive picture to date of the full genetic blueprint of multiple myeloma, and provides new and unexpected insights into the events that lead to the disease. "For the first time, we are able to see on a molecular...
