Engineering nanoparticles for maximum strength


Because they are riddled with defects, bulk crystalline materials never achieve their ideal strength; nanocrystals, on the other hand, are so small there's no room for defects. Yet while nanocrystalline materials may approach ideal strength in their resistance to stress, most nanostructures have ...


Scientists reveal effects of quantum 'traffic jam' in high-temperature superconductors

Findings may point to new materials to get the current flowing at higher temperatures


Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, in collaboration with colleagues at Cornell University, Tokyo University, the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Colorado, have uncovered the first experimental evidence for why the transition ...


New metamaterials that bend light backwards bring invisibility cloaks 1 step closer


Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have for the first time engineered 3-D materials that can reverse the natural direction of visible and near-infrared light, a development that could help form the basis for higher resolution optical imaging, nanocircuits for high-powered ...


A Phonon Floodgate in Monolayer Carbon

The first STM spectroscopy of graphene flakes yields new surprises


Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California at Berkeley have performed the first scanning tunneling spectroscopy of graphene flakes equipped with a "gate" electrode. The result is the latest in a series of ...


Engineers create new adhesive that mimics gecko toe hairs


A new anti-sliding adhesive developed by engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, may be the closest man-made material yet to mimic the remarkable gecko toe hairs that allow the tiny lizard to scamper along vertical surfaces and ceilings. Taking a cue from the millions of hairs ...

Berkeley Scientists Bring MRI/NMR to Microreactors


In a significant step towards improving the design of future catalysts and catalytic reactors, especially for microfluidic "lab-on-a-chip" devices, researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) at ...


Feeling the Heat: Berkeley Researchers Make Thermoelectric Breakthrough in Silicon Nanowires


Energy now lost as heat during the production of electricity could be harnessed through the use of silicon nanowires synthesized via a technique developed by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of ...


Going Live With Click Chemistry: Berkeley Researchers Create a Copper-free Version of the Technique


Click chemistry, one of the most exciting and proficient new techniques for labeling biomolecules in vitro, has now been extended to studies in the context of live cells as well. This breakthrough opens the door for applications to live cell imaging of numerous biomolecules, including glycans, ...

Physicists pin down atomic spin for spintronics


Scientists who dream of shrinking computers to the nanoscale look to atomic spin as one possible building block for both processor and memory, yet setting the spin of an atom, let alone measuring it, has been a challenge. Now, University of California, Berkeley, physicists have succeeded in ...

Prof. Dean Toste receives BASF Catalysis Award 2007

Chemist from the University of California awarded research prize at the Heidelberg Forum of Molecular Catalysis


Professor Dr. F. Dean Toste from the University of California at Berkeley received the BASF Catalysis Award 2007 worth EUR10,000 in recognition of his outstanding contribution to catalytic processes for organic synthesis. The award was presented by Dr. Stefan Marcinowski, member of BASF's Board ...
