Only three Editors Awards are given out of the 100 awards.
This is the second year in a row that that Lab has won an Editors Award. In 2009, the award went to the team working on the artificial retina.
In all, the Lab received six awards at a black tie ceremony in Orlando, Florida on Thursday evening. LLNL's other winning entries were: Energy Monitor for Ultrahigh-Brightness X-Ray Pulses; High Performance Strontium Iodide Scintillator for Gamma Ray Spectroscopy; MEMS-based Adaptive Optics Optical Coherance Tomography; GATOR: Grating Actuated Transient Optical Recorder; and SRaDS: Statistical Radiation Detection System.
The Lab has now captured a total of 135 R&D 100 awards.
