Scientists use neutrons to try to develop better, less costly dental restorations
Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Teeth damaged by trauma or disease require treatment to look and feel as good as new, but the restorative materials available to dentists don’t always last and can be costly for patients. Researchers from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center's College of Dentistry are using neutrons at ORNL's High Flux Isotope Reactor to change that.

A genetic map for maize
University of Delaware

Researchers have decoded the genetic map for how maize from tropical environments can be adapted to the temperate U.S. summer growing season. They’re attempting to expand the genetic base by using exotic varieties, which could help counter stresses associated with growing corn in a changing climate.
