Power electronics research for the secondary battery energy storage system

Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed an innovative control system for repurposed electric vehicle battery packs to store electricity

Friederike Bock, a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow

Friederike Bock, a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow, wants everyone to know scientists aren’t just robots—they want to help others understand their research, and they have wide-ranging interests.

Argon pellet injection text

As scientists study approaches to best sustain a fusion reactor, a team led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory investigated injecting shattered argon pellets into a super-hot plasma, when needed, to protect the reactor’s interior wall from high-energy runaway electrons.

Lightning strike test

Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory demonstrated that an additively manufactured polymer layer, when applied to carbon fiber reinforced plastic, or CFRP, can serve as an effective protector against aircraft lightning strikes.

Liane B. Russell at the outset of her scientific career. She came to Oak Ridge in 1947.

The life and legacy of Dr. Liane Russell – world-renowned for her groundbreaking genetics research in mice – will be celebrated during a symposium on December 20 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
