A technology developed by Diane Bryant and Simon Morton, of the Molecular Biophysics & Integrated Bioimaging Division, has been named a 2016 R&D 100 Award finalist. The Compact Dynamic Beamstop (CDBS), a compact, customizable tool for X-ray scattering experiments providing real-time data, is one of seven Berkeley Lab technologies plus one multi-lab nomination including the Lab that made the list of finalists.
Widely recognized in industry, government, and academia as a mark of excellence for the most innovative ideas of the year, the R&D 100 Awards are the only industry-wide competition rewarding the practical applications of science. They recognize the most promising new products, processes, materials, or software developed throughout the world and introduced to the market the previous year. This year’s 100 award winners will be announced in November.
