What is STIP?

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Scientific and Technical Information Program (STIP) is a collaboration from across the DOE complex working to ensure that the results of DOE-funded research and development (R&D) and other science and technology activities are identified, disseminated, and preserved.

Why We're Here

STIP members, led by the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), work together to increase the availability and transparency of various types of scientific and technical information (STI).  This site provides background, guidance, and more to support the management and preservation of DOE-funded R&D results now and in the future.

Hotter, Denser, Faster, Smaller...and Nearly Perfect: What's the Matter at RHIC? (410th Brookhaven Lecture) The collisions of two beams of heavy-ion particles, atoms stripped of their electrons, speeding around BNL’s immense Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) have long been expected to create a “quark-gluon plasma” in which the quarks and gluons that make up the protons and neutrons in the ions would...

How It's Made - Polarized Proton Beam (444th Brookhaven Lecture) Experiments with polarized beams at RHIC will provide fundamental tests of QCD, and the electro-weak interaction reveal the spin structure of the proton. Polarization asymmetries and parity violation are the strong signatures for identification of the fundamental processes, which are otherwise... Author(s): Zelenski, Anatoli [Brookhaven National Lab. (BNL), Upton, NY (United States). Collider Accelerator Dept.]
When Protein Crystallography Won't Show You the Membranes (446th Brookhaven Lecture) High fever, stomach ache, coughing, sneezing, and fatigue -- these are all painful signs that you may have caught the flu virus. But how does your body actually 'catch' a virus? Somewhere along the way, the virus infected your body by penetrating the membranes, or surfaces, of some of your body's...

A STATISTICAL INTELLIGENCE (STI) APPROACH TO DISCOVERING SPURIOUS CORRELATION IN A PHYSICAL MODEL AND RESOLVING THE PROBLEM WITH AN EXAMPLE... Pulse jet mixing tests were conducted to support the design of mixing systems for the Hanford Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant. A physical approach (based on hydro-dynamic behavior) and two semi-empirical (SE) approaches were applied to the data to develop models for predicting two response...
