DOE SCIENCE NEWS BY TOPIC: Engineering and Technology

DOE laboratories operate many of the nation’s most sophisticated research facilities, including the nation’s largest high performance computing centers, the world’s highest energy proton collider, third-generation synchrotron light sources and high-flux neutron sources as well as specialized facilities for microcharacterization, materials synthesis, combustion research, ion beam studies, and fusion energy research. The agency’s research facilities have an enormous impact on science and technology ranging from the most fundamental constituents of matter to superconductor structure and the production of unique isotopes for defense applications.



Spontaneous formation of biomimetic, nanoporous membrane channels

Spontaneous formation of biomimetic, nanoporous membrane channels

For the first time, spontaneous insertion of carbon nanotubes into natural as well as synthetic cell membranes to form pores that mimic biological channels has been demonstrated.

Optimizing atomic neighborhoods for speedier chemical reactions

Scientists have discovered that for palladium-nickel catalysts, certain surface characteristics, measured at the atomic level, sped the creation of carbon dioxide from carbon monoxide. This type of atomic detail has not been available by traditional studies and can aid the cycle of catalyst design by optimizing for structural parameters at the nearest neighbor level of an atomic environment.
