NRL Researchers Advance Fleet Weather Predictions Through Innovation, Collaboration

MONTEREY, Calif. – The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Marine Meteorology Division in Monterey, California, houses a team of scientists and engineers who work in conjunction with the lab’s broader scientific community to provide the fleet with the most accurate weather forecasts possible. More

NRL Clarifies Valley Polarization for Electronic and Optoelectronic Technologies

WASHINGTON – An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has uncovered a direct link between sample quality and the degree of valley polarization in monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). In contrast with graphene, many monolayer TMDs are semiconductors and show promise for future applications in electronic and optoelectronic technologies. More

Sediment Research is a Large, Yet Granular Exercise at NRL

STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. -- It’s an unseasonably warm February afternoon at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Stennis Space Center (SSC), Mississippi, where three men are tinkering with a 7-foot tall, four-legged instrument platform, preparing it for an upcoming research experiment off the coast of Virginia.

NRL Brightens Perspective of Mysterious Mini-Halos

(WASHINGTON• August 3, 2017) -The largest gravitationally bound objects in the universe are galaxy clusters that form at the intersection of cosmic web filaments. These entities are shaped and grow through massive collisions as material streams into their gravitational pull. Within the heart of some galaxy clusters are mysterious and little known radio mini-halos. These rare, dispersed, and steep-spectrum (brighter at low frequencies) radio sources surround a bright central radio galaxy and are highly luminous at radio wavelengths. More

Nitrides in Transition

WASHINGTON —The average, everyday person might not be familiar with gallium nitride, also known as GaN, but there is a good chance they’ve heard of silicon, a semiconductor that’s been used for decades and found in every computer and most electronics. More
