Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) located near Knoxville, Tennessee is the Department of Energy's largest science and technology lab in the nation. It is managed by UT-Battelle. ORNL has six primary missions; neutron science, energy, high-performance computing, systems biology, materials science and national security. ORNL employs over 4,000 scientists, researchers and support staff for the lab. ORNL does other assignments for the Department of Energy which include isotope production, information management and assists other agencies of government. Current research includes advanced testing techniques for eye disease and disorder and sponsorship of the Global Venture Challenge for university students. ORNL welcomes inquiries and suggests stories for writers. The ORNL Review is a periodic journal of the latest in scientific and technology develops and is available on-line.

A zero-cost way to improve neutron scattering resolution by 500%

Scientists pushing the limits of the world's most advanced neutron scattering instruments know that a small amount of distortion in their measurements is inevitable. For some experiments, this distortion is easily accounted ...

How the pandemic changed human mobility patterns

Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have empirically quantified the shifts in routine daytime activities, such as getting a morning coffee or takeaway dinner, following safer at home orders during the early days ...

Scientists build microporous MOF traps for mitigating toxic gases

Nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide (NO2 and SO2) are toxic gases harmful to the environment and human health. Once they enter the atmosphere, they can travel hundreds of miles, polluting the air and causing acid rain which ...

Q&A: Removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

Radu Custelcean, an organic chemist at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is working with colleagues to develop an energy-efficient and sustainable method for scrubbing carbon dioxide directly from ...

Role of manganese in soil carbon and climate change

While most people think first of atmospheric carbon emissions from fossil fuels when considering climate change, the planet's soil actually stores more carbon and could become a major source of carbon release or a mitigation ...

Team simulates collider physics on quantum computer

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory physicists Christian Bauer, Marat Freytsis and Benjamin Nachman have leveraged an IBM Q quantum computer through the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility's Quantum Computing User Program ...

Retro technique advances modern bacterial engineering for bioenergy

Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists had a problem mapping the genomes of bacteria to better understand the origins of their physical traits and improve their function for bioenergy production. The method they had successfully ...
