On November 26, 2018, researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory received the Joule Award from Barbara Hoffheins of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Office of International Nuclear Safeguards.
This research overcomes limitations in poor solubility of heterometallic double complex salt (DCS) precursors by using a clever sequential adsorption of metal cations and anions onto a silica support followed by an efficient reduction step which convert
This work directly measured the intrinsic surface conductance of topological insulators by using a four-probe scanning tunneling microscope (4-Probe STM) to tune the crossover of bulk-to-surface conductance. A scattering-free spin transport was reveale
This work successfully demonstrated size and geometry customizable carbon microelectrode sensors using templates produced with the CNMS Nanoscribe. These novel carbon electrodes were then implanted into a rat brain to detect dopamine release in vivo.
Researchers utilized a roll-to-roll process to coat electrically conductive carbon fibers with semiconducting silicon carbide nanoparticles—demonstrating a scalable method to make reinforcing fibers for composite applications requiring strong, lightweig
