Dr. Laura Toran, a hydrogeologist in the Environmental Sciences Division of the Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), has been selected to serve on the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Committee to select outstanding student papers for the hydrology section.
Although the Daresbury Nuclear Structure Facility in England was closed in 1993, one of its nuclear physics instruments will have a second life at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Charles A. Flanagan of the Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory has been presented the Distinguished Career Award by the Fusion Power Associates Board of Directors.
A "chemistry lab on a chip" might seem like a researcher's dream, but recent successes at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) suggest it could become a reality.
Martin Marietta Energy Systems has conferred one of its highest honors, the rank of corporate fellow, on Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists Douglas H. Lowndes and Tuan Vo-Dinh and the Oak Ridge K-25 scientist Michael J. Stephenson.
Automobile manufacturers must crash models of their cars to determine if they meet safety standards for protecting passengers during accidents. Because a single car crash test can cost $50,000 to $750,000, an attractive alternative to crunching metal is crunching numbers.
A team of researchers from the Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook have set a new world record for system size in molecular dynamics, using Intel's 1,024-node Paragon supercomputer.
