PNNL staff recognized for scientific accomplishments, moving technologies into the marketplace
Date:5/23/2013

RICHLAND, Wash. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory honored more than 165 staff for their creation, development and commercialization of intellectual property at PNNL's annual Intellectual Property Commercialization Recognition & Rewards Program banquet.

The Department of Energy national laboratory named materials scientist Jun Liu Inventor of the Year for his work developing battery materials that can store large amounts of energy, ease impacts to the electrical grid, and reduce the time it takes to charge cell phones, electric vehicles and other battery-powered devices.

Other staff were recognized for receiving patents, developing commercially valuable software products, making key contributions to technology commercialization efforts, and receiving R&D 100 and Federal Laboratory Consortium Awards over the past year.

"As a national laboratory we continuously strive to move new technologies into the marketplace so others can benefit from federal investments in research," said Technology Deployment and Outreach Director Cheryl Cejka. "In 2012, PNNL researchers responded by accelerating commercialization and innovation that protects the nation and the environment, and increases our energy capacity."

The Inventor of the Year honor is awarded annually to a staff member who over the previous two years has created intellectual property, or whose innovations have the potential to create intellectual property.

Liu received four U.S. patents in 2011 and 2012. During the same time, he contributed to 25 additional U.S. patent applications and filed 17 invention reports related to battery innovation. Since joining PNNL in 1993, Liu has received 43 patents and written or co-written more than 300 peer-reviewed journal articles.

"By focusing on the fundamental science and obtaining insights for different energy storage systems, Jun and his colleagues have pushed the frontiers of batteries from conventional lithi
