ORNL earns top Southeastern laboratory technology transfer award

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Sept. 19, 2003--Robust wireless technologies for extreme-environment communications--developed by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory--received the Excellence In Technology Transfer Award of the Year during the annual awards dinner of the Southeastern Region of the Federal Laboratory Consortium Sept. 18 in Charleston, S.C.

The ORNL-developed wireless communication's technology allows for the deployment of highly-reliable, low-power communications devices to operate in harsh physical and atmospheric environments.

ORNL researchers recognized for this work were Stephen Smith, Gregory Hanson, Michael Moore, John Jones Jr., Roberto Lenardduzzi, Michael Emery, Gary Turner, Nance Ericson, Timothy McKnight, James Hylton, James Moore, Alan Wintenberg, William Dress, Paul Ewing and Grady Vanderhoofven.

In addition, four awards recognizing excellence in technology transfer for work developed at ORNL were presented, according to Larry Dickens, ORNL representative and vice chair of the Federal Laboratory Consortium.

Technology transfer involves laboratories developing technologies that are then licensed to individual companies.

The organization covers 40 federal laboratories in a nine-state region of the Southeastern United States. The awards are presented in recognition of the researchers' hard work, selfless devotion to the pursuit of excellence and dedication to improving the American way of life.

"These awards represent a tremendous achievement by our staff that will benefit the American economy by providing marketable products and creating jobs," said ORNL Director Jeff Wadsworth.

Honors for work on thin-film rechargeable lithium batteries and microcantilevered-based biosensors--each developed at ORNL--were presented to laboratory representatives.

Thin-film rechargeable lithium batteries are less than 10 micrometers thick and when fully integrated with a device have energy
