(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) Ohio-based Strangpresse has exclusively licensed additive manufacturing-related extruder technology from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory that can quickly print hundreds of pounds of polymer material.
The Big Bang began the formation and organization of the matter that makes up ourselves and our world. Nearly 14 billion years later, nuclear physicists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and their partners...Show More Summary
Cybersecurity - Guarding autonomous vehicles
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) A method developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory could protect connected and autonomous vehicles from possible network intrusion. A new ORNL technique makes ultrafast measurements using atomic force microscopy.
(University of Houston) A team of researchers -- from universities across the United States and China, as well as Oak Ridge National Laboratory -- is reporting a new mechanism to boost the performance of thermoelectric materials through higher carrier mobility, increasing how quickly charge-carrying electrons can move across the material.
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) ORNL story tips: 3-D printing process repairs and strengthens Cummins engine without recasting parts. Unoccupied research house serves as test bed for connected neighborhood project. Atomic force microscopy shows adding chloride to photovoltaic materials enhances ionic conduction. Show More Summary
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) ORNL researchers awarded $2 million to apply machine learning to data analysis.
Researchers at NRG, a Dutch firm, have started work on a fission generator that would be the first active thorium salt reactor since the closure of a reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory […] The post First New Thorium Salt Reactor in 40 Years Comes Online appeared first on Geek.com.
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) New mapping methods developed by researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory can help urban planners minimize the environmental impacts of cities' water and energy demands on surrounding stream ecologies.
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) With more volts than ever before in electric vehicles (EVs) and on solar-paneled rooftops, first responder and electrical worker safety is a growing concern. Researchers at the Department of Energy's...Show More Summary
Here's an accounting of some top personnel moves from around the energy industry. As many as 525 people could lose their jobs at the Oak Ridge and Brookhaven National Laboratories. Officials say the cuts are not due to the Trump administration's...Show More Summary

(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) Four Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers specializing in nuclear physics, fusion energy, advanced materials and environmental science are among 59 recipients of Department of Energy's Office of Science Early Career Research Program awards.
The Department of Energy approved plans to reduce the workforce of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Brookhaven National Laboratory by as many as 525 positions. Both labs maintain the planned staffing cuts are not related to the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to DOE’s science programs. The labs’ explanations for the staffing reductions, though, […]
(Rice University) Researchers at Rice University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory predict and experimentally confirm that two-dimensional materials grown onto a cone allows control over where defects appear. These defects, called grain boundaries, can be used to enhance the materials' electronic, mechanical, catalytic and optical properties.
SNS (Image. Oak Ridge National Laboratory, US DOE, Genevieve Martin) Physicists make a lot of statements about stuff they hope will happen, but might not happen in their lifetimes. One physicist, for example, thought that in certain cases, the incredibly common but hard-to-detect neutrino particles would somehow make entire atomic nuclei wiggle. Show More Summary
