Sometimes referred to as the “Academy Awards of Science,” the magazine selected winners for development of “one of the 100 most technologically significant new products of 2010.”

This year’s eight awards bring to 156 the total number of R&D 100 awards won by ORNL scientists.

“I want to congratulate all of this year’s winners on their awards and to thank them for their work,” Energy Secretary Steven Chu said. “The large number of winners from the Department of Energy’s national labs every year is a clear sign that our labs are doing some of the most innovative research in the world. This work benefits us all by enhancing America’s competitiveness, ensuring our security, providing new energy solutions, and expanding the frontiers of our knowledge. Our national labs are truly national treasures, and it is wonderful to see their work recognized once again.”
