ORNL Launches Materials Imaging Institute

Posted on: 06/25/2014
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is establishing the Institute for Functional Imaging that will meld the laboratory’s capabilities in imaging, high-performance computing, materials science and other scientific disciplines to probe materials.

The new institute creates a focal point for ORNL’s core capabilities. The national laboratory is home to several major U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science user facilities, including America’s fastest supercomputer, the world’s most intense pulsed neutron beam and facilities for electron/atom probe and scanning probe microscopy; mass spectrometry; and optical, X-ray and chemical imaging. Its Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences, Chemical Sciences Division and Materials Science and Technology Division provide state-of-the-art imaging capabilities. ORNL also has one of DOE’s largest theory groups, with researchers in materials science, chemistry, physics and computational science.
