The new material is an alloy of iron, chromium, and aluminum. For the past six decades, the ...
For the first time, Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have cultivated an oral microbe that is present in adults with periodontitis, an advanced gum disease that affects nearly half of all adults in the world. The microbe, Desulfobulbus oralis, can help scientists better understand how the microbes that ...
Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists and automakers have developed a new cast aluminum alloy for engine cylinder heads, which could lead to more fuel-efficient internal combustion engines. The research team involved ORNL researchers and representatives from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and a ...
Four Michigan State University students earned DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research Program awards for their research in various areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, making MSU the most-decorated institution represented at the program. The awardees are:.

Magnum Venus Products (MVP), a manufacturer of composite application equipment based in Tennessee, has installed the first large-scale thermoset 3D printer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Manufacturing Demonstration facility in Tennessee. With this new 3D printer, named the Thermobot, ...
OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (WATE) - Scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are conducting research on how mercury moves through the environment and what can be done about it. During the 1950s and 1960s, large amounts of mercury were released from the Y-12 National Security Complex. It seeped into ...
Oak Ridge National Laboratory will house the first system, and another will be deployed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California. “These new systems represent the next generation in supercomputing and will be critical tools both for our nation's scientists and for U.S. industry,” Perry said.
OAK RIDGE, Tenn., April 3, 2018 — Oak Ridge National Laboratory today welcomed a second group of technology innovators to join Innovation Crossroads, the Southeast's only entrepreneurial research and development program based at a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory. Selected through a merit-based ...
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee are studying how water moves through shale, as well as other geologic factors they believe can lead to the more efficient extraction of oil and gas. Victoria DiStefano, ORNL graduate research assistant and ...
This is the first in a series of articles by Carolyn Krause on the history of the molten salt reactor developed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Sometimes the federal funding winds in Washington shift quickly. On July 5, 1971, Karl Z. Morgan, the director of the health physics division at ORNL and founder ...
"Tennesseans know that innovative energy research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory means thousands of high-tech jobs for our state and higher family incomes.” The Office of Science will receive almost $6.3 billion in total. Within that increase, $810 million will go toward Advanced Scientific Computing ...
"It's amazingly good news," says Thom Mason, vice president for laboratory operations at Battelle in Columbus and a former director of Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. "This is beyond anything I expected." Battelle helps run six of the 10 DOE national labs run by the Office of Science, including ...
United States Senator Lamar Alexander Wednesday said the government funding bill increases funding for the most important federal program – the Office of Science – that supports work at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the third consecutive year, and sets a new record funding level in a regular ...
The Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has devised a new way to take the temperature of a material at the nanoscale—the organization has developed a giant thermometer. The technology, dubbed electron energy gain spectroscopy, enables researchers to take the temperature of a ...
For the first time in 30 years, spent nuclear fuel from the High Flux Isotope Reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has been dissolved at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina. The work is important because it is expected to allow the reactor, known as HFIR, to continue its mission, according to the ...

ORNL's historic Graphite Reactor: A national historic landmark, the Graphite Reactor, located at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, served as the pilot plant that led to the first production of plutonium. Visitors can view the world's oldest nuclear reactor and tour the interior of the building which is part of the ...
When a shipment of spent fuel went to Tennessee's Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2016 because it couldn't be sent to Idaho, that meant INL lost out on more than $20 million in federal research money, Peters said. He said not getting that shipment wasn't fatal but called it a “slippery slope.” “If you can't ...
In their paper published in Advanced Materials, the team, including researchers from the Department of Energy's (DOE's) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), illustrates how this unique marriage is achieved in the multiferroic material BiMn3Cr4O12. Many materials are known for just one characteristic ...
DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee has produced 350 grams of the material, some of which will be incorporated in NASA's next Mars rover. “These recent successes have reduced risks associated with future plutonium supplies and factored into NASA's announcement last week to include ...
A new collaboration between the National Energy Technology Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory could use big data to help boost production out of local natural gas wells and find new markets for coal. The joint research covered under the memorandum of understanding signed Friday ...
The aim by Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists is to get the nation's power grid off the public internet and make it less vulnerable to cyberattacks, and it's an effort in which EPB in Chattanooga is lending a hand. The DarkNet collaboration is cited by Chattanooga and ORNL officials as one example of ...
The East Tennessee Technology Park, Y-12 National Security Complex, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory cleanup is funded out of two different accounts, with a third dedicated to historic preservation activities at the Technology Park. A Department of Energy spokesman said Oak Ridge Environmental ...
The U.S. Department of Energy announced a new supercomputing program on Monday that could be worth up to $1.8 billion and deploy two systems, with one at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, that would be 50 to 100 times more powerful than today's computers. The new systems are called exascale ...

James Peery, who led critical national security programs at Sandia National Laboratories and held multiple leadership positions at Los Alamos National Laboratory before arriving at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory last year, has been named associate laboratory director of ...
A team at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has designed and synthesized a selective molecular trap that can separate the minor actinide element americium from a mixture of americium and the lanthanide elements, using europium as the model lanthanide in experiments.
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory is on track to get a new supercomputer in the next 5 years. The Department of Energy released a "request for proposals" for companies who want to develop at least 2 new supercomputers. One will go to Oak Ridge and another will be placed at a national lab in California ...
