OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Mar. 17, 2015 - Images have captivated audiences of all sorts. And scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Institute for Functional Imaging of Materials are no different.

They’re drawn to images, too. But they’re gleaning more than 1,000 words.

Spanning the physical and computational sciences at ORNL, the Institute for Functional Imaging of Materials seeks to guide and tailor the design of materials by combining imaging technology and big data analysis.

This edition of ORNL’s Uncover Your World Podcast gives an overview of research happening at the Institute for Functional Imaging of Materials.

UT-Battelle manages ORNL for the Department of Energy’s Office of Science. DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
