In the neighborhood of microalgae, location is key to bacterial carbon use
A multi-institutional research team created a new co-culture device, dubbed a “porous microplate,” to study how metabolites in the water affect the growth of bacterial communities.

High-quality diamond capsule enhanced NIF’s record-energy shot
Among the factors contributing to the National Ignition Facility (NIF)’s record-smashing 1.3-megajoule (MJ) energy-yield shot on Aug. 8 was the quality of the high-density carbon (HDC), or diamond, target capsule used in the experiment.
