One of four of R&D Magazine's prestigious R&D 100 Awards given to Berkeley Lab for 2006, the editors' choices for the 100 most significant proven technological advances of the year, has gone to researchers at Berkeley Lab's Environmental Energy Technologies Division. The Laser Ultrasonic Sensor, developed by members of EETD and colleagues at the Institute of Paper Science and Technology at the Georgia Institute of Technology is a sensor and control system to ensure optimum paper quality and efficient use of trees, chemicals, and energy by measuring stiffness and shear strength as paper speeds through the production web.
