Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and the Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame have tied quantum physics and chemistry of photosynthesis in biology. Using ultrafast spectroscopy to see what happens at the subatomic level during the very first stage of photosynthesis, two branches of science that […]

A team of University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) has developed a powerful new tool that promises to unlock the secrets of biomass degradation.  Understanding the chemical activities needed is a critical step in the development of cost-effective cellulose based biofuel creation. Getting out the […]
