Argonne researchers receive 4 R&D 100 awards
Date:6/20/2012

ARGONNE, Ill. Four technologies developed by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have received this year's R&D 100 awards.

The awards, organized by R&D magazine, have been given out annually since 1962 for the top technologies of the year and are widely considered to be the "Oscars of Innovation."

"Congratulations to this year's R&D 100 award winners," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "The research and development at the Department of Energy's laboratories continues to help the nation meet our energy challenges, strengthen our national security and improve our economic competitiveness."

This year's winners from Argonne (with team leaders) are:

Globus Online: Ian Foster, Director, Computation Institute.

High-Energy Concentration-Gradient Cathode Material for Plug-in Hybrids and All-Electric Vehicles: Khalil Amine, Senior Materials Scientist and Group Leader, Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division.

Large Area Microchannel Plates: Jeffrey Elam, Principal Chemist and Group Leader, Energy Systems Division.

Ultra-Fast and Large-Scale Boriding: Ali Erdemir, Argonne Distinguished Fellow, Energy Systems Division.

"We are very proud that Argonne's world-class researchers are once again so well-represented among the R&D 100," said Eric D. Isaacs, director of Argonne. "This year's awards underscore the exceptional range of Argonne's scientific initiatives, as well as our continuing success in converting discovery science into innovative, high-impact products, processes and systems."

Globus Online

Globus Online addresses a central problem in the emerging world of big data research: moving large quantities of information reliably, efficiently and securely among the data centers, scientific facilities, research laboratories, and supercomputing sites where data are produced, transformed, stored and consumed.
