  • 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.

  • Materials - Efficient catalysts - January 13, 2015 - Reduction of pollution from vehicles and power plants relies, in large part, on how effectively catalysts can oxidize nitric oxide (NO). Advancing such catalyst performance requires a better understanding of the noble metals used in catalytic converters.

  • ORNL Z-contrast microscope first to resolve, identify individual light atoms
    Mar 25, 2010 - 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. ORNL researcher Stephen J. Pennycook explains.
  • Confluence Solar and ORNL to team up
    Jan 31, 2010 - Scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory know there's enough energy from the sun to go around. "More energy is delivered in an hour by the sun than the world uses in a year," says ORNL Solar Technologies Program Manager Chad Duty. The trick is capturing that energy and effectively converting it from solar to electric. That's what Confluence Solar will do.
