DOE SCIENCE NEWS BY TOPIC: Physical Sciences
DOE provides the majority (approximately 90%) of federal support for high-energy and nuclear physics research, which uses advanced accelerator facilities as well as detectors placed underground and in space to understand the fundamental nature of matter, energy, space, time and the properties and interactions of atomic nuclei and nuclear matter.

Puzzling new behavior found in high-temperature superconductors

Puzzling new behavior found in high-temperature superconductors

Research by an international team led by SLAC and Stanford scientists has uncovered a new, unpredicted behavior in a copper oxide material that becomes superconducting -- conducting electricity without any loss -- at relatively high temperatures.

Atomic trigger shatters mystery of how glass deforms

A new study at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, published Sept. 24 in Nature Communications, has cracked one mystery of glass to shed light on the mechanism that triggers its deformation before shattering. The study improves understanding of glassy deformation and may accelerate broader application of metallic glass, a moldable, wear-resistant, magnetically exploitable material that is thrice as strong as the mightiest steel and ten times as springy.
