December 20, 2016—Scientific discovery can come from anywhere, but few researchers can say the answers to their questions would come from the pea-sized bones in the head of a six-foot-long, 200-pound prehistoric freshwater fish.
December 16, 2016 – It’s been 10 years since the Department of Energy first established a BioEnergy Science Center (BESC) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and researcher Gerald “Jerry” Tuskan has used that time and the lab’s and center’s resources and tools to make good on his college dreams of using genomics to study and improve plant species.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Dec. 13, 2016 — Deep stores of carbon in northern peatlands may remain stable despite rising temperatures, according to a team of researchers from several U.S.-based institutions. And that is good news for now, the researchers said.
OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Dec. 13, 2016 – Easo George, one of the world’s foremost authorities on advanced alloy development and theory, has been named the 15th Governor’s Chair at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee.
OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Dec. 9, 2016—Neutron scattering studies of a rare earth metal oxide have identified fundamental pieces to the quantum spin liquid puzzle, revealing a better understanding of how and why the magnetic moments within these materials exhibit exotic behaviors such as failing to freeze into an ordered arrangement even near absolute zero temperatures.
December 8, 2016 - Scientists are only beginning to understand the laws that govern the atomic world. Before the 1950s the electrons, neutrons, and protons comprising atoms were the smallest confirmed units of matter.
December 7, 2016 – New Mexico’s Almeria Analytics has added a suite of Oak Ridge National Laboratory software technologies to its arsenal of tools useful for disaster relief, civil engineering, urban planning and homeland security applications.
December 7, 2016 – A technology being developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory could be a valuable tool for urban planning, emergency management and understanding where people are and how they move.
December 7, 2016 – 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.
December 7, 2016 – 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. The prototype motor uses ferrite, iron-based, permanent magnets instead of the expensive imported rare earth permanent magnets common in motors today.
December 7, 2016 – A new microscopy technique developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory enables rapid measurement of the dynamic state of materials used in memory storage and allows “imaging” of this phenomenon with unprecedented resolution (approximately 10 nanometers). The technique,
December 7, 2016 – Livestock may soon be getting more nutrition from forage feed thanks to an invention from the BioEnergy Science Center at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and partners at the University of Tennessee and West Virginia University.
OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Dec. 5, 2016 – As part of an effort to develop drought-resistant food and bioenergy crops, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have uncovered the genetic and metabolic mechanisms that allow certain plants to conserve water and thrive in semi-arid climates.
December 2, 2016 – Udaya Kalluri brings considerable energy to her plant research at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory—a trait colleagues describe as “contagious enthusiasm.”
