Howard Hall addressed topics related to how real is the dirty bomb threat.
Members of UT’s Radiochemistry Center of Excellence, also known as Radchem, recently attended the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Stewardship Science Academic Program (SSAP) Annual Review in Bethesda, Maryland.
UT nuclear engineering professor Brian Wirth is considered one of the leading authorities in nuclear materials and modeling how those materials behave in extreme environments.
Howard Hall discussed what security measures are taken on campus to safeguard nuclear material with NPR.
Kristopher Takacs, associate director for Skidmore, Owings and Merrill LLP, will lecture at the College of Architecture and Design at 5:30 p.m. Monday, March 28.
Industry publications highlight Jeremy Smith’s lignin research.
Two professors—one who researches ways to clean up the environment and another who studies how microbial communities interact to shape the planet—have been elected fellows of the American Academy of Microbiology.
Ask a biofuel researcher to name the single greatest technical barrier to cost-effective ethanol, and you’re likely to receive a one-word response: lignin. To better understand exactly how lignin persists, researchers ORNL created one of the largest biomolecular simulations to date using the Titan supercomputer to track and analyze millions of atoms. The research was
Yilu Liu, the joint UT–Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair for Power Grids, has been named a newly elected member of the National Academy of Engineering.
The SunShot National Laboratory Multiyear Partnership recently awarded a $2.3 million project to the College of Engineering and its collaborators.
Tom Zawodzinski, joint UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair for Electrical Energy Conversion and Storage, has earned one of the highest honors in his field—being named a fellow of the American Chemical Society’s Polymer Science Division.
Supercomputing simulations led by a joint UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory team could change how researchers understand the internal motions of proteins that play functional, structural and regulatory roles in all living organisms. The team’s results are featured in Nature Physics.
