Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Nanoparticles for Improving Smart-Window Energy Efficiency

Newswise imageU.S. buildings leak an estimated 30 percent of their energy through inefficient windows, costing consumers an estimated $42 billion annually. But that could begin to change if efforts by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory are successful in commercializing a patented new process for synthesizing vanadium dioxide nanoparticles that makes manufacturing energy-efficient “smart windows” economical.

Newswise imageLisa E. Gordon-Hagerty, U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Under Secretary for Nuclear Security and Administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), visited Argonne on August 29 to get a first-hand look at the laboratory’s national security contributions.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Newly launched TRACER center offers enhanced dating and tracer capabilities

Newswise imageA ribbon-cutting ceremony was held August 17 to formally open the Argonne TRACER Center (Trace Radioisotope Analysis Center) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory. The TRACER Center provides a new, permanent home for the nation’s only laser-based krypton atom-counting machine.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Argonne’s Powerful X-Rays Key to Confirming Water Source Deep Below Earth’s Surface

Newswise imageA study published in Science last week relies on extremely bright X-ray beams from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory to confirm the presence of naturally occurring water at least 410 kilometers below the Earth’s surface. This exciting discovery could change our understanding of how water circulates deep in the Earth’s mantle and how heat escapes from the lower regions of our planet.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Out of Thin Air

Newswise imageArgonne researchers conducted basic science computational studies as part of a collaboration with researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago to design a “beyond-lithium-ion” battery cell that operates by running on air over many charge and discharge cycles. The design offers energy storage capacity about three times that of a lithium-ion battery, with significant potential for further improvements.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: A Marriage of Light-Manipulation Technologies

Newswise imageResearchers from Argonne and Harvard University built a metasurface-based lens atop a Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) platform. The result is a new, infrared light-focusing system that combines the best features of both technologies while reducing the size of the optical system.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Two Argonne Scientists Recognized for a Decade of Breakthroughs

Newswise imageTwo scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have been named to the Web of Science’s Highly Cited List of 2017, ranking in the top 1 percent of their peers by citations and subject area. Materials Scientist Khalil Amine and Energy and Environmental Policy Scientist David Streets say they are thrilled to see their work — and the laboratory — recognized in such a way.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: A Catalytic Balancing Act

Newswise imageScientists have recently used a new and counterintuitive approach to create a better catalyst that supports one of the reactions involved in splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. By first creating an alloy of two of the densest naturally occurring elements and then removing one, the scientists reshaped the remaining material’s structure so that it better balanced three important factors: activity, stability and conductivity.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: The Wet Road to Fast and Stable Batteries

Newswise imageAn international team of scientists — including several researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory — – has discovered an anode battery material with superfast charging and stable operation over many thousands of cycles.

Newswise imageArgonne National Laboratory has been recognized in the annual HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards, presented at the 2017 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC17), in Denver, Colorado.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Four Argonne Researchers Appointed Fellows of Scientific Societies

Newswise imageA select group of scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has been honored as fellows of the American Physical Society and the Electrochemical Society. Physicists Kawtar Hafidi and Michael Carpenter have been appointed as American Physical Society fellows and Materials Scientist Khalil Amine and Chemist Chris Johnson have been elected as Electrochemical Society fellows.

Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Forget About It

Newswise imageInspired by human forgetfulness – how our brains discard unnecessary data to make room for new information — scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, in collaboration with Brookhaven National Laboratory and three universities, conducted a recent study that combined supercomputer simulation and X-ray characterization of a material that gradually “forgets.” This could one day be used for advanced bio-inspired computing.
