Argonne wins three R&D 100 awards for innovative technologies

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energys Argonne National Laboratory devised three of the worlds top 100 scientific and technological innovations during 2006, as judged by R&D magazine.

Argonne scientists are consistent winners of the R&D 100 awards, having garnered 98 of the prizes since the magazine introduced them in 1964.

Once again, DOEs labs are at the cutting edge of innovation with new technology developments to enhance Americas economic and national security, said U.S. Secretary of Energy Samuel Bodman. My heartiest congratulations to the DOE researchers and scientists that have won R&D Magazines prestigious awards this year.

Argonne Director Bob Rosner also offered his congratulations to the winning scientists. These awards are a fitting tribute to scientific work of the highest rank, and a testament to the quality of research that happens every day at Argonne, he said.

This years winners from Argonne are:

  • Access Grid, a piece of open-source teleconferencing software.

  • A passive millimeter-wave spectrometer that can detect chemical signatures at distances of up to a few kilometers.

  • An ultra-high resolution mammography system, which will provide a low-cost computerized alternative to current mammographic techniques.

Access Grid

Access Grid 3 software enables groups of people to collaborate using open-source standards and Internet technology. The Access Grid is designed to provide a natural virtual environment, where users can see and hear one another, projected on a large display wall. More than just videoconferencing, the Access Grid enables participants to share and interact with files and applications. The open nature of the Access Grid software has attracted thousands of users from around the world and has encouraged numerous commercial and research institutions to adopt the software for their purposes.
