Scientists and engineers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have received seven R&D 100 Awards presented by R&D Magazine.
These awards, sometimes referred to as the "Academy Awards of Science," honor the 100 most outstanding advances in technology for the year and are chosen by an expert panel of independent judges and the editors of R&D Magazine.
"I want to congratulate this year's R&D 100 award winners," Energy Secretary Steven Chu said. "The Department of Energy's national laboratories and sites are at the forefront of innovation, and it is gratifying to see their work recognized once again. The cutting-edge research and development done in our national labs and facilities is helping to meet our energy challenges, strengthen our national security and enhance our economic competitiveness."
The seven awards bring the total number of R&D 100 awards won by ORNL researchers over the years to 164.
"Winning seven of these prestigious awards is a testimony to the talent and creativity of a remarkable staff," ORNL Director Thom Mason said. "Our researchers do a tremendous job of delivering our mission of scientific discovery and innovation."
ORNL researchers were recognized for the following technologies:
Multiresolution Adaptive Numerical Environment for Scientific Simulations, submitted and developed by ORNL with a team led by Robert Harrison and George Fann with Judith Hill, Diego Galindo and Jun Jia of the Computer Science and Mathematics Division and Rebecca Hartman-Baker of the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility. Harrison is also the director of the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences.
