A multidisciplinary team has been working for several years to develop a game-changing plastic that, unlike traditional plastics, can be recycled indefinitely and is not made from petroleum. In this Q&A, we asked two project leaders about the inspiration for the unique plastic, shortfalls in our current recycling systems, and how this ambitious project is […]
A research team co-led by Berkeley Lab has demonstrated that the chemistry behind the formation of carbon compounds in the early universe could inform cleaner combustion engines. The post Key to Cleaner Combustion? Look to the Stars appeared first on News Center.
Berkeley Lab has passed the halfway mark in the multi-year process of fabricating crucial superconducting cables as part of a project to upgrade the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. This upgrade, now in progress, will greatly increase the facility’s collision rate and its scientific productivity. The post Cabling for Large Hadron Collider Upgrade Project […]
This month 11 scientists and engineers will join a prestigious two-year fellowship program at Cyclotron Road based at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley. Fellows will embed for two years at Berkeley Lab as they develop new commercial solutions to the world’s most pressing scientific challenges.
