US Department of Energy National Science Bowl

Back to EurekAlert! A Service of the American Association for the Advancement of Science



ORNL is a multiprogram science and technology laboratory managed for the U.S. Department of Energy by UT-Battelle, LLC. Scientists and engineers at ORNL conduct basic and applied research and development to create scientific knowledge solutions that strengthen the nation's leadership in key areas of science; increase the availability of clean, abundant energy; restore and protect the environment; and contribute to national security.

ORNL also performs other work for the Department of Energy, including isotope production, information management, and technical program management, and provides research and technical assistance to other organizations.

ORNL microscopy finds evidence of high-temperature superconductivity in single layer

Electron microscopy at is pointing researchers closer to the development of ultra-thin materials that transfer electrons with no resistance at relatively high temperatures.

Titan helps unpuzzle decades-old plutonium perplexities

First produced in 1940, plutonium is one of the most electronically complicated elements on Earth -- and because of its complexities, scientists have been struggling to prove the existence of its magnetic properties ever since. Finally, that struggle is over, thanks to a timely combination of theory, algorithm and code developments, neutrons experiments, and Titan -- the second-most-powerful supercomputer in the world.
