Physicists measure force that makes antimatter stick together


Peering at the debris from particle collisions that recreate the conditions of the very early universe, scientists have for the first time measured the force of interaction between pairs of antiprotons. Like the force that holds ordinary protons together within the nuclei of atoms, the force ...

Flipping molecular attachments amps up activity of CO2 catalyst


New research by chemists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and their collaborators offers clues that could help scientists design more effective catalysts for transforming CO2 to useful products. The study reveals how a simple rearrangement of molecular attachments ...


Best precision yet for neutrino measurements at Daya Bay


In the Daya Bay region of China a research project is underway to study neutrinos. The international Daya Bay Collaboration announced new findings on the measurements of neutrinos, paving the way forward for further neutrino research, and confirming that the Daya Bay neutrino experiment continues ...


Tiny drops of early universe 'perfect' fluid

Results from collisions of 3-particle ions with gold nuclei reveal evidence of primordial soup's signature particle flow


The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a particle collider for nuclear physics research at Brookhaven National Laboratory, smashes large nuclei together at close to the speed of light to recreate the primordial soup of fundamental particles that existed in the very early universe. ...

Scientists use nanoscale building blocks and DNA 'glue' to shape 3-D superlattices

New approach to designing ordered composite materials for possible energy applications


Taking child's play with building blocks to a whole new level-the nanometer scale-scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have constructed 3D "superlattice" multicomponent nanoparticle arrays where the arrangement of particles is driven by the shape of ...

Self-destructive effects of magnetically-doped ferromagnetic topological insulators

Magnetic atoms that create exotic surface property also sow the seeds of its destruction


The discovery of "topologically protected" electrical conductivity on the surface of some materials whose bulk interior acts as an insulator was among the most sensational advances in the last decade of condensed matter physics - with predictions of numerous unusual electronic states and new ...


Compact batteries enhanced by spontaneous silver matrix formations

Scientists use x-rays to map internal atomic transformations and advance promising lithium-based batteries


In a promising lithium-based battery, the formation of a highly conductive silver matrix transforms a material otherwise plagued by low conductivity. To optimize these multi-metallic batteries - and enhance the flow of electricity - scientists needed a way to see where, when, and how these ...

Plants' oil-desaturating enzymes pair up to channel metabolites

Study raises possibility of linking up enzymes to tailor pathways for increased production of useful plant products


Plant scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have found that certain enzymes responsible for desaturating fatty acids, the building blocks of oils, can link up to efficiently pass intermediate products from one enzyme to another. "Engineering these enzyme ...
