  • Four ORNL scientists selected for early career research funding
    OAK RIDGE, Tenn., May 13, 2015 - Four researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory are among 44 scientists selected by DOE's Office of Science to receive funding under the department's Early Career Research Program.
  • ORNL microscopy directly images problematic lithium dendrites in batteries
    OAK RIDGE, Tenn., March 6, 2015 - Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have captured the first real-time nanoscale images of lithium dendrite structures known to degrade lithium-ion batteries. The ORNL team’s electron microscopy could help researchers address long-standing issues related to battery performance and safety.
  • New, current, completed Wigner fellows recognized - Michael Naguib, sponsored by Nancy Dudney; Michael Chance, sponsored by Lynn Boatner; and Xunxiang Hu, sponsored by Yutai Katoh, all of the Materials Science & Technology Division. The annual Wigner Fellowship reception was held on March 12 to recognize the new and current Wigner fellows along with Wigner fellows who recently completed their fellowship appointment.
