A new motor developed by researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory achieved 75 percent higher power than a comparably sized commercial motor for electric vehicles.
Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a novel, nontoxic fluorescent air leak detection system that can find cracks in walls and roofs in existing and new buildings.
More than 20 years of evaluation work on various radiological/nuclear detection devices has given the Technical Testing and Analysis Center (TTAC) an opportunity to secure an array of specialized equipment in its lab space, with the result that the center
Researchers at the Department of Energy’s BioEnergy Science Center are looking beyond the usual suspects in the search for microbes that can efficiently break down inedible plant matter for conversion to biofuels.
Another barrier to commercially viable biofuels from sources other than corn has fallen with the engineering of a microbe that improves isobutanol yields by a factor of 10. The finding of the Department of Energy’s BioEnergy Science Center, published in t
(from the Fall 2016 issue of ORNL Review) Additive manufacturing—commonly known as 3-D printing—is transforming manufacturing by allowing the design and development of highly complex objects that would be impossible to create with traditional manufacturin
When it comes to a challenging application for embedded instrumentation and control, none quite beats an environment of molten salt at 700 degrees Celsius. But that is just the application chosen by scientists at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Na
ExxonMobil has announced the first firing of a new crosshead slow speed test engine to drive forward its research and development of next generation cylinder and system oils for the marine industry.
from ORNL Review, vol 49, no 3, 2016 The ingredients that make geothermal energy suitable for electricity production are simple: heat, permeability (usually fractured rock) and water.
