Researchers report they have directly observed a prototypical version of a class of molecules central to environmental and combustion chemistry. This new knowledge is important to climate change models and the design of more efficient combustion engines.
A team from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Stanford University and Purdue University developed and demonstrated a novel, fully functional quantum local area network, or QLAN, to enable real-time adjustments to information shared with geographically isolated systems at ORNL using entangled photons passing through optical fiber.

A new data source to help scientists better understand the ionosphere and its potential impact on communications and positioning, navigation, and timing—an essential utility for many critical operations—is now available to the public.
Lithium-ion batteries are common but can pose safety problems. Solid-state batteries are smaller, safer and store more energy. Scientists at Argonne are accelerating a new generation of better batteries.
Registration has now opened for the 32nd National Science Bowl (NSB), hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science. Thousands of students compete in the contest annually as it has grown into one of the largest, academic math and science competitions in the country.
The Integrated Biochemical and Electrochemical Technologies to Convert Organic Waste to Biopower collaboration has a workforce component that will bring new technologies and new talent from the United States, Canada and Mexico to the bioenergy industry.
