Latest Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Stories
Hutcheonite, recently named after Lawrence Livermore meteorite researcher Ian Hutcheon, can be seen only with high powered scanning electron microscopes.
Outbreaks such as the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS) have afflicted people around the world, yet many people think these trends are on the decline.
The use of plasmonic black metals could someday provide a pathway to more efficient photovoltaics (PV) -- the use of solar panels containing photovoltaic solar cells -- to improve solar energy harvesting, according to researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).
An increasing amount of the energy used each year in the US is coming from renewable sources such as natural gas, solar panels and wind turbines, according to new research released Thursday by scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers have broken the record for tracking the movement and concentration of carbon dioxide in a geologic formation using the world's deepest Electrical Resistance Tomography (ERT) system.
Billions of years ago icy comets crashed into the Earth, and they could have produced life-providing organic compounds, including the building blocks of proteins and nucleobase pairs of DNA and RNA.
A new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide has been demonstrated by scientists. The new technique also generates carbon-negative hydrogen and produces alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification.
Knowledge Foundation and Oak Ridge National Laboratory brings the 2nd Biosurveillance Symposium and Biodetection Technologies 2013 to Alexandria, VA on June 17 - 19, 2013. Boston,
Massive Compact Halo Object (MACHO) -- Massive compact halo objects, or MACHOs, are a type of astronomical body proposed as one possible explanation for the presence of dark matter in galactic halos. A MACHO is a small chunk of normal baryonic matter, far smaller than a star, which drifts through interstellar space unassociated with any solar system. Since MACHOs would not emit any light of their own, they would be very hard to detect. Recent work has suggested that MACHOs are not...
