"The range of these cutting-edge technologies demonstrates the breadth of expertise at our national laboratories," Abraham said. "The accomplishments of these innovative researchers will benefit our entire Nation."
The DOE researchers winning the 2003 R&D 100 Awards work in 11 of the department's laboratories across the country. Eighteen of the awards are shared with businesses and universities. Two of the awards are for research at companies funded by DOE. Descriptions of the technologies are available on the department's Office of Science web site at www.science.doe.gov.
An independent panel of some 60 experts and editors of R&D Magazine selected the winning technologies. The awards will be presented at a ceremony in Chicago in October. The complete list of 2003 R&D 100 Awards can be found on the R&D Magazine web site at www.rdmag.com
