If we could make plant food from nitrogen the way nature does, we'd have a much greener method for manufacturing fertilizer – a process that requires such high temperatures and pressures that it consumes about 1.5 percent of the world's energy.
Researchers have uncovered chemical traces of a pigment, an important component of color, that once formed patterns in the feathers of fossilized birds.
An international team including University of Pennsylvania paleontologists is unearthing the appearance of ancient animals by using the world's most powerful X-rays.
Glass, by definition, is amorphous; its atoms lack order and are arranged every which way, but when scientists squeezed tiny samples of a metallic glass under high pressure, they got a surprise: The atoms lined up in a regular pattern to form a single crystal.
RIKEN and the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI) have successfully produced a first beam of X-ray laser light with a wavelength of 1.2 Angstroms.
RIKEN and the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI) have successfully produced a beam of X-ray laser light with a wavelength of 1.2 Angstroms, the shortest ever measured.
Scientists have found the strongest evidence yet that a puzzling gap in the electronic structures of some high-temperature superconductors could indicate a new phase of matter.
Berkeley Lab scientists accelerate calculations a million times.
Arizona State University builds protein beam injector and contributes nanocrystals.
The Linac Coherent Light Source could revolutionize the study of life.
