Brookhaven National Laboratory, (BNL) was founded in 1947 by the Atomic Energy Commission in Upton on Long Island in New York. Currently BNL is operated by Brookhaven Science Associates LLC, a partnership between Stony Brook University and Battelle Memorial Institute. The main focus of BNL today is Nuclear and high-energy physics research, physics and chemistry of materials, environmental and energy research, nonproliferation, neurosciences and medical imaging and structural biology. BNL employs about 3,000 scientists and hosts approximately 4,000 guest investigators each year. Six Nobel Prizes were awarded to scientists working at BNL.

Making big leaps in understanding nanoscale gaps

Creating novel materials by combining layers with unique, beneficial properties seems like a fairly intuitive process—stack up the materials and stack up the benefits. This isn't always the case, however. Not every material ...

Keeping water-treatment membranes from fouling out

When you use a membrane for water treatment, junk builds up on the membrane surface—a process called fouling—which makes the treatment less efficient. In a new study, published in the Journal of Membrane Science, researchers ...

First direct visualization of a zero-field pair density wave

In the field of superconductivity—the phenomenon in which electrons can flow through a material with essentially zero resistance—the "holy grail" of discovery is a superconductor that can perform under everyday temperatures ...

New driver for shapes of small quark-gluon plasma drops?

New measurements of how particles flow from collisions of different types of particles at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) have provided new insights into the origin of the shape of hot specks of matter generated ...

Direct photons point to positive gluon polarization

A new publication by the PHENIX Collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) provides definitive evidence that gluon "spins" are aligned in the same direction as the spin of the proton they're in. The result, ...
