To the growing list of two-dimensional semiconductors, such as graphene, boron nitride, and molybdenum disulfide, whose unique electronic properties make them potential successors to silicon in future devices, you can now add hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites. However, unlike the other ...
DESI, the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, is an exceptional apparatus designed to improve our understanding of the role of dark energy in the expansion history of the universe; it will do this by measuring the redshifts of more than 30 million galaxies and quasars, with unprecedented ...
Ultra-thin invisibility "skin" cloak conceals from detection
Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California Berkeley have devised an ultra-thin invisibility "skin" cloak that can conform to the shape of an object and conceal it from detection with visible light. Although this cloak is only microscopic in size, the ...
Solar cell absorbs high-energy light at 30-fold higher concentration than conventional cells
By combining designer quantum dot light-emitters with spectrally matched photonic mirrors, a team of scientists with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of Illinois created solar cells that collect blue photons with the highest luminescent concentration factor ever ...
Berkeley Lab researchers double down on a good thing by incorporating catalysts into crystalline sponges
A molecular system for the capture and storage of carbon dioxide has been modified so that it now also holds great promise as a catalyst for converting captured carbon dioxide into valuable chemical products. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ...
Scientists find that an iron-binding protein can transport actinides into cells
Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have reported an advance in understanding the biological chemistry of radioactive metals, opening up new avenues of research into strategies for remedial action in the event of possible human exposure to nuclear contaminants. Research led by ...
Berkeley Lab scientist invents technique to combine spectroscopy with super-resolution microscopy
Using physical chemistry methods to look at biology at the nanoscale, a Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) researcher has invented a new technology to image single molecules with unprecedented spectral and spatial resolution, thus leading to the first "true-color" ...
Berkeley Lab researchers use campanile probe on promising semiconductor
Scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have used a nano-optical probe to study the effects of illumination on two-dimensional semiconductors at the molecular level. Working at the Molecular Foundry, a DOE Office of Science User ...
Major milestone in molecular electronics scored by Berkeley Lab and Columbia University team
Researchers at Berkeley Lab and Columbia University has passed a major milestone in molecular electronics with the creation of the world's highest-performance single-molecule diode.The team used a combination of gold electrodes and an ionic solution to create a single-molecule diode that ...
Berkeley Lab's SINGLE provides images of individual nanoparticles in solution
Just as proteins are one of the basic building blocks of biology, nanoparticles can serve as the basic building blocks for next generation materials. In keeping with this parallel between biology and nanotechnology, a proven technique for determining the three dimensional structures of individual ...
