- Basic science: seeks to understand how nature works. This research includes experimental and theoretical work in materials science, physics, chemistry, biology, high-energy physics, and mathematics and computer science, including high performance computing.
- Applied science and engineering helps to find practical solutions to society’s problems. These programs focus primarily on energy resources, environmental management and national security.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory is the largest U.S. Department of Energy science and energy laboratory, conducting basic and applied research to deliver transformative solutions to compelling problems in energy and security. ORNL's diverse capabilities span a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines, enabling the Laboratory to explore fundamental science challenges and to carry out the research needed to accelerate the delivery of solutions to the marketplace. ORNL supports DOE's national missions of:
- Scientific discovery—We assemble teams of experts from diverse backgrounds, equip them with powerful instruments and research facilities, and address compelling national problems;
- Clean energy—We deliver energy technology solutions for energy-efficient buildings, transportation, and manufacturing, and we study biological, environmental, and climate systems in order to develop new biofuels and bioproducts and to explore the impacts of climate change;
- Security—We develop and deploy "first-of-a-kind" science-based security technologies to make the world a safer place.
ORNL supports these missions through leadership in four major areas of science and technology:
- Neutrons—We operate two of the world's leading neutron sources, which enable scientists and engineers to gain new insights into materials and biological systems;
- Computing—We accelerate scientific discovery through modeling and simulation on powerful supercomputers, advance data-intensive science, and sustain US leadership in high-performance computing;
- Materials—We integrate basic and applied research to develop advanced materials for energy applications;
- Advanced Test Reactor Complex, the nation’s premier resource for fuels and material irradiation testing, nuclear safety research and nuclear isotope production;.
- Materials and Fuels Complex, the center of DOE’s advanced nuclear fuel development initiatives and post-irradiation capabilities;.
- Research and Education Campus, the front door to INL and the center of INL’s computing capabilities, with a variety of research, administrative, educational and technical support facilities.
INL is responding to the growing demands of our modern world with innovations in transportation systems, renewable energy integration, advanced manufacturing, biomass feedstock assembly and environmental sustainability. INL also helps the U.S. departments of Defense and Homeland Security by using its unique capabilities to support efforts to secure industrial control systems from cyber and nuclear threats, develop advanced nuclear facility safeguards, and design advanced wireless sensors and protocols. INL enables explosives impact analysis, armor development and radiological training. To enrich and focus this research and development portfolio, INL is committed to collaboration with regional, national and international leaders in academia, industry and government.
