Nuclear research at ORNL The Oak Ridger

Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s nuclear-related research involves everything from revolutionary reactor concepts to power sources for space missions. “We have the broadest base of nuclear work,” said David Hill, associate laboratory director for Energy and Engineering Technologies. That’s a good thing, especially if you pay attention to news reports that indicate the nuclear power industry is talking about revival and that the American reliance on nuclear energy is likely to grow significantly in coming decades.
