PNNL scientists win 3 R&D 100 awards for visual display, analytics and energy technologies
Date:7/14/2014

RICHLAND, Wash. Technologies that rival electronic screens, enable new molecular analysis and reduce dependence on fossil fuels received recognition for their innovation today. R&D Magazine honored three advancements developed by researchers at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory with its annual R&D 100 awards.

R&D Magazine selects the 100 most innovative scientific and technological breakthroughs of the year from nominations spanning private, academic and government institutions. Today's honors bring PNNL's total to 93 since the awards' inception in 1969.

"These awards recognize the tremendous value of our national labs," said Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz. "Research and development at the national labs continues to help our nation address its energy challenges and pursue the scientific and technological innovations necessary to remain globally competitive."

Try reading this sentence with the screen an inch from your face and you've experienced the main drawback of head-mounted displays. Screens can get too close for comfort.

Avegant's Glyph is a headset display that has no screen. Instead, its visor contains a PNNL-developed virtual retinal display, which reflects light onto the back of the viewer's eyes. Because the display mimics natural vision, it reduces nausea and eye strain even with extended use.

PNNL teamed with Avegant to demonstrate military applications for the headset, such as night-time maneuvers and piloting armored or unmanned vehicles. But the technology has many more applications, including surgery and virtual training.

Former PNNL staff member Allan Evans co-founded Avegant to develop the technology into a product for everyday use. The headset can display media from a computer, TV, game console or similar devices with a screen. It includes headphones and a built-in microphone. Looking through the visor of a Glyph is similar to looking at an 80
