Berkeley Lab’s advanced materials expertise is applied to innovation in batteries and other energy storage technologies, semiconductors, and photovoltaics. Additional energy-related areas of expertise include grid modernization and security, bio-based fuels and chemicals and building energy and demand response. Several National User Facilities are available for collaborative engagement: the Advanced Light Source, Molecular Foundry, National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), Energy Sciences Network, and the Joint Genome Institute. Other specialized facilities include FLEXLAB for building energy research and the Advanced Biofuels Process Demonstration Unit.
Ernest Orlando Lawrence, the lab's founder, believed team science yielded the greatest discoveries. That belief is reflected today in interdisciplinary teams and collaborative projects connecting Berkeley Lab, industry, and other research organizations. Berkeley Lab's Intellectual Property Office, connects industry partners with lab innovations and unique facilities to enable lab-to-market transition.
Fermilab is America's premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research. Since 1967, Fermilab has worked to expand humanity's understanding of matter, energy, space and time, studying the smallest building blocks of matter using some of the largest and most complex machines in the world.
The laboratory's 6,800-acre site is located in Batavia, Illinois, and its 1,700-plus employees include scientists and engineers from around the world. More than 4,000 scientists from over 50 countries also collaborate with Fermilab to build and operate world-leading accelerator, detector and computing facilities to investigate the physics of fundamental particles.
One of the world's pioneering laboratories for accelerator science and technology, Fermilab is home to the 83,000-square-foot Illinois Accelerator Research Center (IARC), where lab scientists and engineers partner with industry to translate technology developed in the pursuit of science into the next generation of industrial accelerators, products and applications. The center features an experimental area and provides state-of-the-art facilities for visiting scientists and entrepreneurs, including the Accelerator Applications Development and Demonstration (A2D2) machine, a test platform for electron-beam- and X-ray-based inspection and testing.
Fermilab's Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer is a vital part of the laboratory, transitioning technologies to private-sector partners to enhance the nation's economic competitiveness. The office enables the formation of high-impact partnerships with industry, academia and other institutions that support the global and scientific missions of the lab.
Research in the Long group focuses on the design and controlled synthesis of novel inorganic materials and molecules toward the fundamental understanding of new physical phenomena, with applications in gas storage, molecular separations, conductivity, catalysis, and magnetism. We employ a range of physical methods to analyze and characterize our materials comprehensively, including by gas adsorption analysis, X-ray and neutron diffraction, various spectroscopic techniques, and SQUID magnetometry. For more information about the Long group and a full list of publications, please visit the group website.
A major focus of research in the Long group is the design and study of metal–organic frameworks—porous, inorganic solids built of metal nodes connected by organic linkers—that are of interest for applications ranging from gas storage and molecular separations to catalysis and battery applications.
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;
