Vipin Kumar, a composites researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been recognized by SAMPE, the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering, with the 2021 Young Professional Emerging Leadership Award.
A team from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Stanford University and Purdue University developed and demonstrated a novel, fully functional quantum local area network, or QLAN, to enable real-time adjustments to information shared with geographically isolated systems at ORNL using entangled photons passing through optical fiber.

A team led by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has found a rare quantum material in which electrons move in coordinated ways, essentially “dancing.” Straining the material creates an electronic band structure that sets the stage for exotic, more tightly correlated behavior – akin to tangoing – among Dirac electrons, which are especially mobile electric charge carriers that may someday enable faster transistors.

Nearly a billion acres of land in the United States is dedicated to agriculture, producing more than a trillion dollars of food products to feed the country and the world. Those same agricultural processes, however, also produced an estimated 700 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Finding a way to reduce the latter while sustaining the former is becoming an area of increased focus in national decarbonization efforts and is attracting increased attention at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. ORNL is convening a virtual workshop today to bring together industry, academia and the world-class scientific resources of a U.S. Department of Energy national lab to take on the challenge.
