"We are extremely proud that DOE has selected one of the extraordinary achievements made by the Laboratory's Medical Technology Program team for the Bright Light Award," said Jeff Wadsworth, deputy director for Science and Technology. "This award proves the Laboratory continues to make significant contributions that benefit the quality of life."
The Bright Light Award is part of DOEs Energy 100 list, which honors 23 years of the best scientific and technological accomplishments the Department of Energy has to offer since the department was created in 1977. The achievements were nominated for review by DOE lab, program and field offices. A panel of citizen judges evaluated the achievements based on consumer orientation, whether it saves money and its ability to improve American quality of life.
