Use tag cloud & get a quick look at DOE accomplishments

Use this tag cloud to quickly find research results related to your scientific key words of interest in the DOE R&D Accomplishments database. There is a direct correlation between font size and quantity: the more times a term appears in the bibliographic citations, the larger the font size. DOE R&D Accomplishments is a central forum for information about significant outcomes of past DOE R&D widely recognized as remarkable advancements in science.

Get scientific videos highlighting the most exciting R&D sponsored by DOE via ScienceCinema

ScienceCinema ScienceCinema uses innovative, state-of-the-art audio indexing and speech recognition technology from Microsoft Research to allow users to quickly find video files produced by the DOE National Laboratories and other DOE research facilities. When users search for specific scientific words and phrases of interest to them, precise snippets of the video where the specific search term was spoken will appear along with a timeline. Users can then select a snippet or a segment along the timeline to begin playing the video at the exact point in the video where the words were spoken. While the launch of the video database will include an initial 1,000 hours of content, it will continue to grow as new DOE R&D-related videos are produced. See the press release.
