ORNL wins four R&D 100 awards, pushing total to 116

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., July 2, 2003 -- Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have won four R&D awards from R&D Magazine, which since 1963 has given the awards for the 100 most significant innovations of the year.

"All of us at ORNL are extremely proud of our staff for winning these awards," said ORNL Director Bill Madia. "The award is among the most coveted in the world of scientific research, and winning it brings prestige to both the researcher and the laboratory."

ORNL's total of 116 awards is second only to General Electric. The following inventions received honors:

RAMiTS: Raman Integrated Tunable Sensor, developed and submitted by Tuan Vo-Dinh, Joel Mobley, Brain Cullum and David Stokes of the Life Sciences Division, and Alan Wintenberg and Steven Frank of the Engineering Science and Technology Division. Robert Maples of RIS of Knoxville is a co-developer.

RAMiTS is a compact, "point-and-shoot," fully integrated, battery-operated Raman monitor and is based on solid-state acoustooptic tunable filter technology. Outside the laboratory, this device can perform qualitative analysis of chemical and biological samples in seconds. RAMiTS can identify hundreds of substances, including toxic chemicals, by-products from explosives, biomedical markers, pharmaceuticals and illicit drugs. RAMiTS also could help revolutionize sensing applications such as environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics and homeland security, researchers said.

MicroTrapMS, developed and submitted jointly by Michael Ramsey, William Whitten and Peter Reilly of the Chemical Sciences Division; Oleg Kornienko, postdoctoral ORNL fellow; and Protasis Corp. of Marlboro, Mass.

MicroTrapMS is a highly miniaturized ion trap mass spectrometer that is based on ORNL patented technology. The product can be used for applications from on-line screening for toxins in municipal watersheds to detecting hazardous substances at airport chec
