Tiny robots that can assemble and repair themselves? Watch a video of Argonne National Laboratory's micro-robots that easily perform tasks that can challenge other robots, including moving objects that are larger than themselves.
Dr. Wang's work spans a wide range -- from transportation fuels to advanced vehicles technologies. His team also developed GREET (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions and Energy use in Transportation), a computer model for analyzing energy and the environmental effects of these technologies and fuels.
This edition of the Geek-Up highlights the potential boost that cyanobacteria could deliver to biofuels and examines how computer design tools are advancing the next generation of electric drive vehicle batteries.
This Argonne biochemist works on developing biochips, which can identify proteins and used to trace the origins of biological agents such as anthrax in addition to their ability to diagnose infections and even cancer.
The Energy Department has partnered with a university-based project performing cutting-edge research to improve the way electric infrastructure is built, increasing the security and reliability of the grid.
Meet Thomas Wallner – automotive engineer extraordinaire, who hails from Argonne National Laboratory’s Center for Transportation Research. He took some time to answer our 10 Questions and share his insight on advanced engine technologies from dual-fuel to biofuels.
