New Algorithm Enhances Ptychographic Image Reconstruction

June 4, 2018

Researchers from CAMERA, the University of Texas and Tianjin Normal University have developed an algorithmic model that enhances the image reconstruction capabilities of Berkeley Lab's SHARP algorithmic framework and computer software that is used to reconstruct millions of phases of ptychographic image data per second.

Self-Healing Cement Could Be a Boon to Oil & Gas Industry

May 24, 2018

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have developed a unique cement that can repair itself in as little as a few hours. Such a product would be a boon to the oil and gas industry; wellbore cement for geothermal applications has a lifespan of only 30 to 40 years, and when the cement cracks, which happens often, repairs can easily top $1.5 million per well. This challenge prompted PNNL chemist Carlos Fernandez and colleagues to create… Read More »
