Argonne National Laboratory received nearly $1.2 million in funding from the Department of Energy to support four manufacturing and materials development projects that have the potential to improve energy efficiency.
Scott Chambers creates layered structures of thin metal oxide films and studies their properties, creating materials not found in nature. He will soon move his instrumentation and research to the new Energy Sciences Center.
Jacqueline Chen harnesses some of the nation’s most powerful computers to model the complex interactions in combustion engines. Her research illustrates how much our computing power and understanding of these processes has evolved over decades of work.
Since its foundation, the collaborative research culture of AQT at Berkeley Lab has incorporated scientists from different backgrounds and fields to advance quantum computing. David I. Santiago, AQT's technical lead, shared his perspectives about this fast-growing field and his journey growing up and studying physics in Puerto Rico.
Analytical chemists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a rapid way to measure isotopic ratios of uranium and plutonium collected on environmental swipes, which could help International Atomic Energy Agency analysts detect the presence of undeclared nuclear activities or material.

José Rodriguez, a chemist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory and an adjunct professor in the departments of Chemistry and Materials Science and Chemical Engineering at Stony Brook University, has been named a 2021 Fellow of the American Vacuum Society (AVS). The award recognizes Rodriguez for his contributions in the field of catalysis.
Incorporating green infrastructure into flood protection plans alongside gray infrastructure can shield communities, reduce maintenance, and provide additional social and environmental benefits.
Spawned by the spins of electrons in magnetic materials, these tiny whirlpools behave like independent particles and could be the future of computing. Experiments with SLAC’s X-ray laser are revealing their secrets.
