A team of experimentalists led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and UT has demonstrated an energy-efficient desalination technology that uses a porous membrane made of strong, slim graphene—a carbon honeycomb one atom thick.
The study of the properties of boundaries between different materials—something that could one day change the world of electronics—is getting a boost from research being done by scientists in UT’s College of Engineering and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory featured Chris Martin, a sophomore in computer science, who
Suresh Babu, UT-ORNL Governor’s Chair for Advanced Manufacturing, was quoted in an article in R & D Magazine about a
David Mandrus, a professor in UT’s College of Engineering, has been selected as the first Jerry and Kay Henry Endowed Professor.
A team of researchers at UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory are investigating if lignin—a low-cost byproduct of the pulp, paper, and biofuels industries—could be useful as a battery anode in lithium-ion batteries.
This week’s Science Forum at UT will look at alternative transportation energy sources and innovations. Claus Daniel, deputy director of the Sustainable Transportation program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will talk on “Electrification of Transportation: Cost and Opportunities.” His discussion begins at noon on Friday, September 19, in Room C-D of Thompson-Boling Arena.
The only “car” that most people associate with printers is a “car-tridge” of ink, but may soon change, thanks in part to several UT students.
It’s not uncommon to find sharp minds on the Hill, one of the oldest collections of buildings on the UT campus. Sharp blades, on the other hand, well that takes something special.
An idea for a new way to test some of the smallest pieces of our planet has earned a large award—more than $2.2 million to be exact—from the National Science Foundation for a pair of professors in the College of Engineering.
