More small, clean-energy businesses will tap into Sandia technical expertise

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) The Department of Energy has chosen five more small, clean-energy businesses to work with Sandia National Laboratories to speed the commercialization of next-generation technologies and gain a global competitive advantage for the US.

Research from Sandia shows brain stimulation during training boosts performance

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) New research from Sandia published in Neuropsychologia shows that working memory training combined with a kind of noninvasive brain stimulation can lead to cognitive improvement under certain conditions. Improving working memory or cognitive strategies could be very valuable for training people faster and more efficiently.

Sandia honored for fighting Ebola, analyzing emerging biotechnologies

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories just received recognition from the Secretary of Energy for their work to mitigate the effects of the 2014 Ebola epidemic.

Better living through pressure: Functional nanomaterials made easy

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Using pressure instead of chemicals, nanoparticles have been fabricated into nanowire arrays similar to those that underlie touch-screens for phones, computers, TVs, and sensors. The pressure process takes nanoseconds instead of the hours required by industry's current chemical means.

Better living through pressure—functional nanomaterials made easy

Using pressure instead of chemicals, a Sandia National Laboratories team has fabricated nanoparticles into nanowire-array structures similar to those that underlie the surfaces of touch-screens for sensors, computers, phones and TVs. The pressure-based fabrication process takes nanoseconds. Chemistry-based industrial techniques take hours.

US launches qualification tests for upgraded nuke bomb

last weekHumor / odd : The Sideshow

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Scientists at Sandia National Laboratories are claiming success with the first in a new series of test flights involving an upgraded version of a nuclear bomb that has been part of the U.S. arsenal for decad...

Drop of mock B61-12 is first of new flight tests

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) The drop of a mock nuclear weapon on Tonopah Test Range in Nevada marked the start of a new series of test flights vital to the nation's B61-12 weapon refurbishment program.

Predicting the limits of friction: Sandia looks at properties of material

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories materials scientists have developed a model to predict the limits of friction behavior of metals based on materials properties -- how hard you can push on materials or how much current you can put through them before they stop working properly.

New brain-inspired cybersecurity system detects 'bad apples' 100 times faster

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) The Neuromorphic Cyber Microscope can look for the complex patterns that indicate specific 'bad apples,' all while using less electricity than a standard 60-watt light bulb, due to its brain-inspired design.

Low-cost smartphone device seeks out Zika

last monthTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Scientists have already used smartphones to combat the Zika virus, in the form of a grid computing system that puts idle processors to work searching for a cure, but new work from Sandia National Laboratories is a little more direct....Show More Summary

Testing for Zika virus: There's an app for that

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Add rapid, mobile testing for Zika and other viruses to the list of things that smartphone technology is making possible. Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have developed a smartphone-controlled,...Show More Summary

Power partners: Sandia draws industry into quest for cheaper, cleaner electricity

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories is working with three industry partners to commercialize a distributed power system that can produce cheaper, cleaner, more efficient electricity.

Electro-optical switch transmits data at record-low temperatures

(The Optical Society) A silicon optical switch newly developed at Sandia National Laboratories is the first to transmit up to 10 gigabits per second of data at temperatures just a few degrees above absolute zero. The device could enable data transmission for next-generation superconducting computers that store and process data at cryogenic temperatures.

Dan Sinars represents Sandia in first energy leadership class

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Dan Sinars, a senior manager in Sandia National Laboratories' pulsed power center, which built and operates the Z facility, is the sole representative from a nuclear weapons lab in a Department of Energy leadership program that recently visited Sandia.

Guiding light: Sandia creates 3-D metasurfaces with optical possibilities

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) The new Sandia metamaterials can be fabricated in multiple layers to form complex, three-dimensional meta-atoms that reflect more light than shiny gold surfaces, usually considered the ultimate in infrared reflectivity. Show More Summary

Plants at the pump: Multilab project seeks toughest strains of algae for biofuel production

Regular, unleaded or algae? That's a choice drivers could make at the pump one day. But for algal biofuels to compete with petroleum, farming algae has to become less expensive. Toward that goal, Sandia National Laboratories is testing strains of algae for resistance to a host of predators and diseases, and learning to detect when an algae pond is about to crash.

Sandia scientist named fellow for diverse contributions to aeronautics, space research

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Gary Polansky, the chief scientist for hypersonic technology development and applications at Sandia National Laboratories, has been named a fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

Super plants need super ROOTS

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Researchers from Sandia National Laboratories, The University of New Mexico and the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology will adapt previously developed sensors to monitor root function and plant health in new, noninvasive ways

An ultra-low-power artificial synapse for neural-network computing

From Kurzweil: Stanford University and Sandia National Laboratories researchers have developed an organic artificial synapse based on a new memristor (resistive memory device) design that mimics the way synapses in the brain learn. The new artificial synapse could lead to computers that better recreate the way the human brain processes information. Show More Summary
