Researchers Discover A Tiny Twist In Bilayer Graphene That May Solve A Mystery
2013-08-12 16:36:44

Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have discovered a unique new twist to the story of graphene, sheets of pure carbon just one atom thick, and in the process appear to have solved a mystery that has held back device development.

FTIR Spectro-microtomography Unveiled By Researchers
2013-08-06 07:04:48

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory An iconic moment in the history of Hollywood movie magic was born in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz when Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale stepped out of the black and white world of Kansas into the rainbow colored world of Oz. An iconic moment in the history of infrared imaging may have been born with the announcement of the first technique to offer full color IR tomography. A collaboration between researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence...

Researchers Increase NMR/MRI Sensitivity Through Hyperpolarization Of Nuclei In Diamond
2013-06-06 15:09:01

Today’s nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technologies, like quantum information processing and nuclear spintronic technologies, are based on an intrinsic quantum property of electrons and atomic nuclei called “spin.”

How And Where Breast Tumor Cells Become Dormant And What Causes Them To Become Metastatic
2013-06-03 19:49:37

The long-standing mystery behind dormant disseminated breast tumor cells and what activates them after years and even decades of latency may have been solved.

Big Molecule Models Captured In A Flash
2013-05-28 11:02:32

To learn how biological molecules like proteins function, scientists must first understand their structures. Almost as important is understanding how the structures change, as molecules in the native state do their jobs.

Researchers Extend Electron Spin In Diamond For Incredibly Tiny Magnetic Detectors
2013-05-10 10:18:01

From brain to heart to stomach, the bodies of humans and animals generate weak magnetic fields that a supersensitive detector could use to pinpoint illnesses, trace drugs – and maybe even read minds.

Researchers Develop Enzyme-free Ionic Liquid Pre-treatment For Cellulosic Biomass
2013-05-09 11:43:26

Advanced biofuels – liquid fuels synthesized from the sugars in cellulosic biomass – offer a clean, green and renewable alternative to gasoline, diesel and jet fuels.
