Batteries benefit from disordered materials

Lithium batteries, with their exceptional ability to store power per a given weight, have been a major focus of research to enable use in...

New theory may revolutionize superconductors

High-temperature superconductors exhibit a frustratingly varied catalog of odd behavior, such as electrons that arrange themselves into stripes or refuse to arrange themselves symmetrically...

Pressure Cooking to Improve Electric Car Batteries

Batteries that power electric cars have problems. They take a long time to charge. The charge doesn’t hold long enough to drive long distances....

A Grand Unified Theory of Exotic Superconductivity?

Years of experiments on various types of high-temperature (high-Tc) superconductors—materials that offer hope for energy-saving applications such as zero-loss electrical power lines—have turned up...

Scientists ID Genes for Upping Oil in Plant Leaves

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have identified the key genes required for oil production and accumulation in plant leaves...

Scientists Identify Promising Antiviral Compounds

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have identified two promising candidates for the development of drugs against human adenovirus, a...

Binge eaters’ dopamine levels spike at sight, smell of food

UPTON, NY - A brain imaging study at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory reveals a subtle difference between ordinary obese subjects and those who compulsively overeat, or binge: In binge eaters but not ordinary obes...

Neuroscientists find overlooked brain area is an important locus of depression

Cold Spring Harbor, NY -- A team of neuroscientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and UC San Diego (UCSD) has collected evidence suggesting that a previously overlooked portion of the brain could be a ...

Fleeting fluctuations in superconductivity disappear close to transition temperature

UPTON, NY -- As part of an ongoing effort to uncover details of how high-temperature superconductors carry electrical current with no resistance, scientists at Johns Hopkins University and the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Labora...

Young people say sex, paychecks come in second to self-esteem

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Young people may crave boosts to their self-esteem a little too much, new research suggests. Researchers found that college students valued boosts to their self-esteem more than any other pleasant activity they were asked abo...
