ORNL scientists help explain graphene mystery


Nanoscale simulations and theoretical research performed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory are bringing scientists closer to realizing graphene's potential in electronic applications. A research team led by ORNL's Bobby Sumpter, Vincent Meunier and Eduardo Cruz-Silva ...


Unprecedented look at oxide interfaces reveals unexpected structures on atomic scale


Thin layers of oxide materials and their interfaces have been observed in atomic resolution during growth for the first time by researchers at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, providing new insight into the complicated link ...


ORNL Z-contrast microscope first to resolve, identify individual light atoms

ORNL Z-contrast microscope first to resolve, identify individual light atoms


Using the latest in aberration-corrected electron microscopy, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and their colleagues have obtained the first images that distinguish individual light atoms such as boron, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen. The ORNL images were ...


New ORNL sensor exploits traditional weakness of nano devices


By taking advantage of a phenomenon that until now has been a virtual showstopper for electronics designers, a team led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Panos Datskos is developing a chemical and biological sensor with unprecedented sensitivity. Ultimately, researchers believe this new ...


UT Knoxville and ORNL researchers turn algae into high-temperature hydrogen source

Platinum-catalyzed photosynthetic process creates high-yield sustainable source of hydrogen


In the quest to make hydrogen as a clean alternative fuel source, researchers have been stymied about how to create usable hydrogen that is clean and sustainable without relying on an intensive, high-energy process that outweighs the benefits of not using petroleum to power vehicles. New ...

ORNL researchers analyze material with 'colossal ionic conductivity'


A new material characterized at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory could open a pathway toward more efficient fuel cells. The material, a super-lattice developed by researchers in Spain, improves ionic conductivity near room temperature by a factor of almost 100 million, ...


Powerful superconductor is in a class all its own


Superconductivity has perplexed, astounded and inspired scientists ever since it was discovered in 1911. Now, in the latest of a century of surprises, researchers at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University have discovered unusual properties in a novel ...


New titanium manufacturing process saves energy


Whether for stopping cars or bullets, titanium is the material of choice, but it has always been too expensive for all but the most specialized applications. That could change, however, with a non-melt consolidation process being developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and industry partners. ...


Van Berkel earns Biemann Medal for contributions to mass spec field


Gary Van Berkel of Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Chemical Sciences Division has been awarded the Biemann Medal by the American Society for Mass Spectrometry. The international award recognizes Van Berkel's achievements and contributions to better understanding the electrochemical nature of the ...
