31 ‪#‎toxic‬ chemicals are found at high levels in ‪#‎ecigarette‬ vapor including acrolein, acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, and more.
A Berkeley Lab study has found that the the solvents found in most electronic cigarette “e-liquids” emit toxic chemicals such as acrolein and formaldehyde when burned.

+Johnny M. You can hide behind that vampire, and perhaps you will live. But eventually your seed will be staked. Time is ticking.

World’s most sensitive #darkmatter detector completes search, far exceeding sensitivity expectations, and ultimately offering guidance for #nextgen experiments and research.

+NERSC +Sanford Underground Research Facility +doescience +Brown University 
The Large Underground Xenon (LUX) dark matter experiment, which, with the help of Berkeley Lab researchers, operates beneath a mile of rock at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in the Black Hills of South Dakota, has completed its search for the missing matter of the universe. At a meeting in the UK, LUX scientific collaborators presented the results from the detector’s final 20-month run.

Did you know Jupiter’s gravity protects Earth from asteroids in the asteroid belt? This ‪#‎GIF‬ by Petr Scheirich demonstrates!

My friend Dr. Kevin Graizer would disagree. He has modeled a different view.

We've taken a big step toward building atomically thin electronics and packing more computing power in a smaller area.
Scientists develop a way to chemically assemble transistors and circuits that are only a few atoms thick.

Team of #BerkLab scientists make discovery that may lead to greater #solar cell efficiency!
Nanoscale images by Berkeley Lab researchers yield surprise that could push perovskite solar cell efficiency to 31 percent.

Scientists at +JBEI LBL are using CO2 to tame toxic solvent, potentially lowering the cost of #biofuels by recycling a key ingredient.
JBEI scientists have shown that adding carbon dioxide gas during the deconstruction phase of biofuel production successfully neutralized the toxicity of ionic liquids. The technique, which is reversible, allows the liquid to be recycled, representing a major step forward in streamlining the biofuel production process.

Off-grid lighting holds promise for job creation and ‪#‎energy‬ savings in ‪#‎Africa‬, and may have immense benefits for the ‪#‎health‬ and ‪#‎education‬ of the continent's populations.
Many households in impoverished regions around the world are starting to shift away from inefficient and polluting fuel-based lighting—such as candles, firewood, and kerosene lanterns—to solar-LED systems. While this trend has tremendous environmental benefits, a new study by Berkeley Lab has found that it spurs economic development as well, to the tune of 2 million potential new jobs.

Mindblowing 3D map of 1.2 million galaxies measures #darkenergy. 😳

"We can see galaxies being gravitationally pulled towards other galaxies by dark matter. And on much larger scales, we see the effect of dark energy ripping the universe apart.” - David Schlegel, astrophysicist
A team of hundreds of physicists and astronomers, including those from Berkeley Lab, have announced results from the largest-ever, three-dimensional map of distant galaxies. The team constructed this map to make one of the most precise measurements yet of the dark energy currently driving the accelerated expansion of the Universe.

How do floods, drought, fire and early snowmelt impact the downstream delivery of water, nutrients, carbon, and metals? Our new Watershed Function Scientific Focus Area (SFA) is on a mission to find out.
Berkeley Lab will lead the Watershed Function Scientific Focus Area (SFA) a project that will consider timeframes and scales from genome to watershed.

Good news! Research by Berkeley Lab scientists could speed development of solar-fuel generators.
Berkeley Lab scientists at DOE's Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis have found a way to better predict how thin-film semiconductors weather the harsh conditions in systems that convert sunlight, water and carbon dioxide into fuel.

#DataCenters  are no longer the energy hoarders they once were. How do we continue to improve on their #energyefficiency ?
As the number of data centers continues to increase in the United States, the good news is that they are becoming much more energy efficient. A new report from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has found that electricity consumption by data centers nationwide, after rising rapidly for more than a decade, started to plateau in 2010 and has remained steady since, at just under 2 percent of total U.S. electricity consumption.

Introduction
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory addresses the world’s most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe.

Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab’s scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
