Tasty Fat: X-Rays Finding the Blueprint of Why Fat Is Yummy

Argonne National Laboratory

Over three years, a University of Guelph team has brought increasingly complex samples of edible fat to the APS for research. They are using the data from the APS USAXS facility to characterize the nanoscale structure of different kinds of edible fats and applying the data to a model that predicts the effect of processes like heating and mixing on fat structure. If food manufacturers understand the unique structures of different fat compositions, they can better mimic the desirable tastes and textures of unhealthy fats with healthier alternatives, potentially impacting diseases closely tied to diet.

Argonne-Developed Technology for Achieving Superlubricity Wins 2016 Techconnect National Innovation Award

Argonne National Laboratory

A Graphene-nanodiamond solution for achieving superlubricity that was developed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory has won a 2016 TechConnect National Innovation Award. TechConnect is a global innovation prospecting company, delivering the most promising technologies to the world’s leading corporate, investment and government clients. Principal investigator and Argonne nanoscientist Ani Sumant accepted the award on May 22 at the TechConnect-National Innovation Summit in Washington, D.C. The technology received the award because it placed in the top 15% of all submitted technologies as ranked by the TechConnect Corporate & Investment Partner Committee.
