Welcome to the Department of Energy (DOE) Research and Development (R&D) Accomplishments, a central forum for information about the outcomes of past DOE R&D that have had significant economic impact, have improved people's lives, or have been widely recognized as remarkable advances in science. An R&D accomplishment is the outcome of past research whose benefits are being realized now.
The Web site is comprised of the R&D Accomplishments Database, Featured Topics pages, DOE-associated Nobel Laureates and Snapshots. It showcases the proud heritage of the Department's research and development. You may wish to explore some interesting insights.
The core of the Web site is the DOE R&D Accomplishments Database, containing over 250 searchable documents and bibliographic citations that report accomplishments from DOE and DOE contractor facilities. It was developed and is maintained and supported by the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) and may be used to search, locate, access, and download full-text and/or bibliographic information electronically.
Featured Topics pages may spotlight an individual scientist or an area of research. Pages highlighting individuals provide insights into the scientist's body of research, a biographical sketch, recognitions, and links to related full-text reports and Web pages. Pages highlighting areas of research provide summary information about the research and links to related full-text reports and Web pages.
Complementing the Database, Featured Topics pages, and Nobel Laureates is a page called Snapshots, which provides quick pictures, introductions, overviews, or synopses of DOE accomplishments. The Snapshots page contains links to items or articles which contain information about or identify at least one R&D accomplishment. In some instances when more information is available via DOE R&D Accomplishments Database reports, links to the reports are provided.
Research and development accomplishments are exemplified by more than eighty (85) Nobel Laureates associated with the Department of Energy or predecessor agencies. DOE R&D Accomplishments provides information about these Nobel Laureates and their outstanding achievements.
