For 60 years, the R&D 100 Awards have recognized the the most innovative products and services from research and development labs around the world. Now, in this exciting new podcast, co-hosts Paul J. Heney and Aimee Kalnoskas, editors with R&D World magazine, delve into the how and why behind these groundbreaking inventions and talk to the teams that developed and created them.
R&D 100 Episode 10
In this, the tenth episode of the R&D 100 Podcast, we examine the latest technology in superconducting magnets. These magnets have existed since the 1960s, but the field available has been limited by the properties of superconducting materials. So, VP, Editorial Director Paul J. Heney and Senior Editor Aimee Kalnoskas of R&D World spoke with experts at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University about their award-winning 32 T superconducting magnet, which won an R&D 100 Award in 2022. Designed and built at the National Magnetic Field Laboratory, this instrument is giving scientists unprecedented insights into the electronic behaviors of quantum matter and illuminating new exotic states of matter in topological materials.
R&D 100 Episode 9
R&D World editors Paul Heney and Aimee Kalnoskas are back, and this time they’re discussing a lot of news, in addition to the technology of the day. First, they delve into some important updates about the R&D 100 Awards for 2023 — and then dip their toes into the strange new world of AI images. See if you can beat Aimee’s guesses as to which press release images are real and which are AI generated. Then, it’s on to the main event, a look at the development of Tescan’s UniTOM HR, a 2022 R&D 100 Awards winner. This product is the first micro-CT system to deliver both sub-micron 3D imaging and high temporal resolution for 4D time-resolved studies. Hear why it’s so revolutionary and how the Tescan team worked to make it a reality.
R&D 100 Episode 8

Plus, hear more about a special award that this podcast recently won, as well as details about the upcoming 2021 R&D 100 Award winner announcement.
R&D 100 Episode 5
Co-hosts Paul J. Heney and Aimee Kalnoskas, editors with R&D World magazine delve into the incredible technology behind Abbott’s Amplatzer Piccolo Occluder, a 2020 R&D 100 Award winner. It is a self-expanding, wire mesh device that is inserted through a small incision in a newborn's leg and guided through vessels to the heart. There, it fixes a problem called patent ductus arteriosus. Hear more about how this technology came to be and how it's working in the real world.
So great to have a podcast focused on this important part of the economy while keeping it fun! Thanks so much!
I listen to a lot of technical podcasts, but it’s always great to listen to one where I can learn new things and apply them to my job.
