Innovative technologies from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) to achieve higher energy efficiency in buildings, make lithium batteries safer and higher performing, and secure quantum communications were some of the inventions honored with R&D 100 Awards by R&D World magazine.
Established in 1963, the R&D 100 Awards is the only science and technology awards competition that recognizes new commercial products, technologies and materials for their technological significance that are available for sale or license.
Berkeley Lab’s seven technologies that received the R&D 100 Awards in 2020 are:
- Flow-Through Microelectrode Cell for Precision Electroanalytical Chemistry
- Matter-Wave Modulating Secure Quantum Communicator (MMQ-Com)
- Solid Lithium Battery Using Hard and Soft Solid Electrolytes
- Porous Graphitic Frameworks for Sustainable High-Performance Li-Ion Batteries
- Building Efficiency Targeting Tool for Energy Retrofits (BETTER)
- Amanzi–ATS: Modeling Environmental Systems Across Scales
- Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems (IDAES)
