The newly developed ability to tap previously inaccessible shale gas deposits during the last decade has created an abundant source of gases, including methane, ethane and propane, that are used to create chemical-based products such as plastics.
Scientists at U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratories are collaborating to test a magnetic property of the muon. Their experiment could point to the existence of physics beyond our current understanding, including undiscovered particles.
Artificial intelligence plays a significant role in new research methods that bring resolution or discovery more quickly than ever before. Argonne is using or developing many of these technologies as AI extends to new branches of science and technology.
What do paint, dishwasher detergent, ketchup and blood have in common? All are composed of particles suspended in a carrier liquid, flow when stirred or forced, but remain thick or even gel-like at rest.
Dozens of female scientists and engineers welcomed middle-school girls to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory on Thursday, February 22, for a day full of learning about science and engineering.
