Argonne Researchers Win Four R&D 100 Awards
July 28, 2009

Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory received four R&D 100 awards as judged by R&D Magazine. The awards recognize the top scientific and technological innovations of the past year. Argonne scientists have won 105 R&D 100 awards since they were first introduced in 1964.

This year’s winners from Argonne are:

  • High Performance Software for Engineering and Science

  • Super hard and slick coating for increased engine efficiency and component reliability

  • The Hard X-ray Nanoprobe

  • Argonne/Envia composite electrode material technology for hybrid and all-electric vehicles

Beyond the four awards, Argonne scientists were part of a collaborative project to develop an artificial retina that won an R&D 100 Award.  The project involved researchers from several other national laboratories, universities and other organizations.  Argonne representatives who contributed to the work include senior physicist Orlando Auciello, staff scientist Bing Shi and post doc Wei Li jointly won an award for the artificial retina bioelectric implant. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was the submitting organization.

Argonne is managed by UChicago Argonne, LLC for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
