The illustration traces the path of the beam as it passes through the copper radio frequency quadrupole, the black dipole magnet, and the slitted measuring system, and onto the particle detector. The beam’s structural complexity increases when measured at progressively higher resolutions. Credit: ORNL/Jill Hemman A high-intensity accelerator beam is […]

At the University of Notre Dame, part of the Oak Ridge Deuterated Spectroscopic Array measured a reaction that causes noise in some neutrino detectors. Credit: Michael Febbraro/ORNL, U.S. Dept. of Energy Led by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a new study clears up a discrepancy regarding the […]

ANIMATION Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences, or CNMS, contributed to a groundbreaking experiment published in Science that tracks the real-time transport of individual molecules. A team led by the University of Graz, Austria, used unique four-probe scanning tunneling microscopy, or STM, to move a single molecule between two […]

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is designing a neutronic research engine to evaluate new materials and designs for advanced vehicles using the facilities at the Spallation Neutron Source at ORNL.
