in 2004 received three R&D 100 Awards from R&D
Magazine, bringing the Laboratory's total to 119 awards and
enabling the Laboratory to maintain a lead over all Department of
Energy national labs since the competition began in 1963. The awards
are given to the 100 most significant innovations of the year. Sharing
ORNL's awards were 15 ORNL researchers and one UT technician.
Major General Dennis K. Jackson, director of logistics transformation in ORNL's National Security Directorate, received the National Cargo Security Council's highest award for his "skillful management of the largest, most successful, and efficient transfer of materials and equipment in the shortest time span in military history, as the Director of Logistics and Engineering for all of Southwest Asia, with emphasis on Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom in the liberation of Afghanistan and Iraq."
Juske Horita received the 2004 Geochemical Society of Japan Award, in recognition of "his outstanding contributions in the area of experimental studies of stable isotope partitioning at elevated temperatures and pressures."
Stuart Daw, a pioneer in modeling vehicle emission controls, was recognized by the Department of Energy's Office of FreedomCAR and Vehicle Technologies for his "dedication in creating and coordinating CLEERS (crosscut lean exhaust emission reduction simulation) and leading the Lean NOx Trap Focus Group."
James R. Beene and Steven J. Zinkle have been named UT-Battelle corporate fellows for 2004. Beene, director of ORNL's Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility, was recognized for his leadership in making it "a forefront facility for nuclear science" and for his pioneering work in nuclear structure physics that led to a quantitative understanding of the excitation and decay of radioactive, neutron-rich nuclei. Zinkle is considered an international authority in the study of radiation effects on materials. He has written a series of critical review articles summarizing fundamental radiation effects aspects in a broad range of metals and ceramics used in fission and fusion energy systems.
Sergei Kalinin, Thomas Maier, David Silvermyr, Brian D'Urso, and Vicky D'Urso (Brian's wife) have been named Eugene P. Wigner Fellows.
