Nov. 22, 2017—Michelle Buchanan, deputy for science and technology at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will discuss ORNL's "Current Capabilities and Future Directions" from 4 to 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, at the Engineering and Science Building.
Jun. 8, 2016—The provisional name for the newly discovered superheavy element 117 is "tennessine." The name was proposed by Vanderbilt nuclear physicist Joseph Hamilton to honor the state where three members of the international collaboration that made the discovery -- Vanderbilt University, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and University of Tennessee at Knoxville -- are located.
Apr. 15, 2016—A future generation of atomically thin optoelectronics devices, including transistors, photodetectors and solar cells, is a step closer because of an advance in the art of epitaxy made by scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) with an assist from a pair of Vanderbilt physicists.
Jun. 24, 2015—For the last five years, scientists and engineers at Vanderbilt University have been collaborating closely with colleagues with other public and private universities and research centers throughout Tennessee in an effort to increase the state’s energy research capacity
Jan. 9, 2015—A cutting-edge Vanderbilt lab that studies how materials, structures and machines operate under real-world conditions will play a key part in the new multistate, $259 million Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) to be announced today by President Obama.
Nov. 14, 2014—Scientists at Vanderbilt and ORNL have discovered a new form of crystalline order that could make better thermoelectric devices.
Apr. 28, 2014—A Vanderbilt graduate student has used a focused beam of electrons to create some of the smallest nanowires ever made, which could bring us closer to flexible, paper-thin tablets and television displays.
Apr. 16, 2013—Engineering majors will exhibit solutions to real-life engineering challenges proposed by clients with real design needs, including a next-generation vaccum cleaner and a smart car seat that alerts parents to children left in hot cars.
Sep. 17, 2012—The effects of climate change will have widespread impact on the state, but there are opportunities to offset it by incorporating “climate-friendly” and “climate-resilient” actions into routine management decisions, say scientists from Vanderbilt University, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, University of Tennessee at Knoxville, University of Memphis and the Tennessee Department of Health in a new report.
