Shull, Wollan Families Gather for Rededication of Center

Relatives of Clifford Shull and Ernest Wollan recently gathered at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the rededication of the Shull Wollan Center—A Joint Institute for Neutron Sciences.

Shull and Wollan were pioneering researchers of neutron diffraction in the 1940s, laying the groundwork for scientific breakthroughs that continue to this day in physics, energy science, materials science, and biological science.

Additionally, Wollan was a key member of the Manhattan Project research team in Chicago whose work led to the development of the atomic bomb, while Shull was on a team that received the 1994 Nobel Prize for Physics for his work with neutrons.
