Simulations Reveal An Unusual Death for Ancient Stars

September 29, 2014 Tags: CRD, NERSC

Certain primordial stars—those between 55,000 and 56,000 times the mass of our Sun, or solar masses—may have died unusually. In death, these objects—among the Universe’s first-generation of stars—would have exploded as supernovae and burned completely, leaving no remnant black hole behind. Read More »


Pore models track reactions in underground carbon capture

September 25, 2014 Tags: CRD, NERSC

Berkeley Lab researchers are creating microscopic pore-scale simulations could help scientists evaluate ways to store carbon dioxide produced by power plants, keeping it from contributing to global climate change. Read More »


Interface Surprises May Motivate Novel Oxide Electronic Devices

September 23, 2014 Tags: NERSC

Complex oxides have long tantalized the materials science community for their promise in next-generation energy and information technologies. Now researchers have found that intrinsic electric fields can drive oxygen diffusion at interfaces in engineered thin films made of complex oxides. Read More »


CS Staff Contribute to Successful National Lab Day in Washington

September 19, 2014 Tags: Outreach

Seventeen DOE national labs pooled their expertise and accomplishments to stage National Lab Day in the Rayburn Senate Office Building on Tuesday, Sept. 16. The event, which focused on the labs as a system rather than highlighting individual labs. drew 15 members of Congress and more than 100 staff members. Read More »


Adapting Materials Sciences Algorithms for Cancer Screening Leads to Award for Berkeley Lab Researcher

September 15, 2014 Tags: Awards, CRD

An automated method to extract the boundaries of individual cytoplasm and nucleus from overlapping cervical cell images, developed by Berkeley Lab's Daniela Ushizima and Brazilian collaborators, won first place at an IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2014) competition. The tool included pattern recognition algorithms developed by DOE's CAMERA to characterize new materials. Read More »
