2017 R&D 100 Award Winners

Celebrating the R&D 100 Award Winners from Office of Science National Laboratories

Quantum dots amplify light with electrical pumping

(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) In a breakthrough development, Los Alamos scientists have shown that they can successfully amplify light using electrically excited films of the chemically synthesized semiconductor nanocrystals known as quantum dots.

This enormous national lab helped give birth to the nuclear age — here's what's going on inside now

LEMONT, Illinois — I thought my first visit to a Department of Energy lab would be reminiscent of the Hawkins National Laboratory, the top-secret facility depicted in "Stranger Things." The Argonne National Laboratory, founded in 1946, is roughly 30 miles from downtown Chicago in Lemont, Illinois. Show More Summary

Eight Los Alamos innovations win R&D 100 Awards

(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) Eight Los Alamos National Laboratory technologies won R&D 100 Awards last week at R&D Magazine's annual ceremony in Orlando, Florida.

Regaining America's Supercomputing Supremacy With The Summit Supercomputer

Oak Ridge National Laboratory's new Summit supercomputer should rocket the U.S. back into the lead over China with the fastest supercomputer in the world.

Scientists make first observations of how a meteor-like shock turns silica into glass

Studies at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have made the first real-time observations of how silica –  an abundant material in the Earth's crust – easily transforms into a dense glass when hit with a massive shock wave like one generated from a meteor impact.

Argonne to install Comanche system to explore ARM technology for HPC

(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) Argonne National Laboratory is collaborating with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to provide system software expertise and a development ecosystem for a future high-performance computing (HPC) system based on 64-bit ARM processors.

Unlocking the secrets of Ebola

(DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) Scientists have identified a set of biomarkers that indicate which patients infected with the Ebola virus are most at risk of dying from the disease. The results come from one of the most in-depth studies ever of blood samples from patients with Ebola. Show More Summary

Caltech and AT&T present quantum networks R&D program at Supercomputing17 in Denver

(INQNET ) The Alliance for Quantum Technologies (AQT), founded by Caltech and AT&T in May 2017 in collaboration with national laboratories and industry partners, is presenting the 'INtelligent Quantum NEtworks & Technologies' (INQNET) research program at Supercomputing 2017 in Denver (Nov.

X-Rays Reveal the Biting Truth About Parrotfish Teeth

A study by scientists – including those at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) – has revealed a chain mail-like woven microstructure that gives parrotfish teeth their remarkable bite and resilience.

'We were blown away' - researchers eliminate obstacle to fusion energy

Fusion powers the sun, and if we could harness it here on Earth, we could obtain unlimited clean energy. Scientists have been working on that goal for years, and now researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Texas A&M University just made a huge leap forwards.

Lawrence Livermore and American Heart Association Partner to Accelerate Drug Discovery

The American Heart Association (AHA) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have formed a strategic business partnership to overcome the burden of drug discovery, cost and access.

'Criticality' experiments enhance nuclear safety, security and effectiveness

Gathered in a control room deep in the Nevada desert, a team of researchers from Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos national laboratories watched safety monitors as a carefully layered stack of plutonium inched toward "critical" - the point at which fissile material can sustain a nuclear chain reaction.

To find new biofuel enzymes, it can take a microbial village

A new study led by researchers at the Department of Energy's Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI), based at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), demonstrates the importance of microbial communities as a source of stable enzymes that could be used to convert plants to biofuels.

To find new biofuel enzymes, it can take a microbial village

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) In search of new plant enzymes? Try looking in compost. Researchers at JBEI have demonstrated the importance of microbial communities as a source of stable enzymes that could be used to convert plants to biofuels. This approach yields robust enzymes that researchers can't easily obtain from isolates.
