Understanding heat flows is focus of DOE Early Career Award winner Delaire
— Olivier Delaire, a scientist at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has won a prestigious Early Career Award from DOE’s Office of Science to study how heat propagates, or moves, through matter at an atomic level.

How to create nanowires only three atoms wide with an electron beam
— Junhao Lin, a Vanderbilt University Ph.D. student and visiting scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), has found a way to use a finely focused beam of electrons to create some of the smallest wires ever made. The flexible metallic wires are only three atoms wide: One thousandth the width of the microscopic wires used to connect the transistors in today’s integrated circuits.

‘Sweet spot’ for salty water
— Computational modeling has given materials researchers new insight into the properties of a membrane that purifies saltwater into potable water. The resulting technology could help speed up inefficient desalination processes in use today.

David Mullins Elected American Vacuum Society Fellow
— David Mullins of the Chemical Sciences Division was named a 2014 Fellow of the American Vacuum Society. David was honored for his contributions to surface science in the area of soft x-ray excited electron spectroscopy techniques and their use for the study of surface chemistry of adsorbed molecules and catalytic processes.

Paranthaman elected ASM International Fellow
— Mariappan (Prans) Paranthaman was named an ASM International Fellow in recognition for the development of novel epitaxial buffer layers on textured templates, enabling high critical current density superconductor films, and for developing mesoporous architectures destined for "high performance" energy storage applications.

Delaire receives DOE Early Career Research Award
— Olivier Delaire, a scientist in ORNL's Materials Sciences and Technology Division, has won a prestigious Early Career Award from DOE’s Office of Science to study how heat propagates, or moves, through matter at an atomic level. Delaire will receive $2.5 million over five years for his work, which holds potential for developing next-generation materials and energy-saving technologies.
