Oak Ridge National Laboratory is the Department of Energy’s largest science and energy laboratory.
Managed since April 2000 by a partnership of the University of Tennessee and Battelle, ORNL has a staff of more than 4,600 and annually hosts approximately 3,000 guest researchers who spend two weeks or longer in Oak Ridge. Annual funding exceeds $1.4 billion. As an international leader in a range of scientific areas that support the Department of Energy’s mission, ORNL has six major mission roles: neutron science, energy, high-performance computing, systems biology, materials science at the nanoscale, and national security. ORNL’s leadership role in the nation’s energy future includes hosting the U.S. project office for the ITER international fusion experiment and the Office of Science-sponsored Bioenergy Science Center.
A World-Class Scientific Research Facility
Already the world’s most powerful neutron source, the $1.4 billion Spallation Neutron Source, combined with the upgraded High Flux Isotope Reactor, makes Oak Ridge the world’s foremost center for neutron science research. The Leadership Computing facility is home to the world’s most powerful supercomputers.
A Campus for the Next Generation of Research
ORNL is completing a $350 million project to provide a modern campus for the next generation of great science. A unique combination of federal, state, and private funds is supporting the construction of 13 new facilities, including the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences, the Advanced Microscopy Laboratory, the Office of Science’s Leadership Computing Facility for unclassified high-performance computing, the Chemical and Materials Sciences Building, and the state-funded joint institutes for computational sciences, biological sciences, and neutron sciences.
