A new era of electronics and even quantum devices could be ushered in with the fabrication of a virtually perfect single layer of “white graphene,” according to researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The material, technic
Miaofang Chi of the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has earned the ORNL Director’s Award for Outstanding Individual Accomplishment in Science and Technology.
Four researchers from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have been elected fellows of the American Physical Society (APS), one of the nation's top professional organizations for scientists. Jaime Fernandez-Baca, Sergei Kalinin, Mark
Electron microscopy researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a unique way to build 3-D structures with finely controlled shapes as small as one to two billionths of a meter. The ORNL study published in the jou
Quasiparticles—excitations that behave collectively like particles—are central to energy applications but can be difficult to detect.
Steady progress in the development of advanced materials has led to modern civilization’s foundational technologies—better batteries, resilient building materials and atom-scale semiconductors.
The efficiency of solar cells depends on precise engineering of polymers that assemble into films 1,000 times thinner than a human hair. Today, formation of that polymer assembly requires solvents that can harm the environment, but scientists at the Depar
A new technique developed by microscopy and computing experts at Oak Ridge National Laboratory could accelerate advances in materials science and engineering.
Sergei Kalinin, a researcher in the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been named a fellow of AVS.
