Lighting up the study of low-density materials

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories studies myriads of low-density materials, from laminate layers in airplane wings to foams and epoxies that cushion parts. So Sandia borrowed and refined a technique being studied by the medical field, X-ray phase contrast imaging, to look inside the softer side of things without taking them apart.

Optimizing hydrogen-powered passenger ferries focus of Sandia Labs study

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Maritime transportation has emerged as one solution to the traffic gridlock that plagues coastal cities. But with urban passenger ferries operating in sensitive environments and tourist areas, hydrogen fuel cell-powered passenger ferries offer a quiet, zero-emission alternative to conventional diesel vessels.

Clean Water That's 'Just Right' with Sandia Sensor Solution

Working with Parker Hannifin, Sandia National Laboratories combined basic research on an interesting form of carbon with a unique microsensor to make an easy-to-use, table-top tool that quickly and cheaply detects disinfection byproducts in our drinking water before it reaches consumers.

New Mexico firm uses motion of the ocean to bring fresh water to coastal communities

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Working with scientists at Sandia National Laboratories through the New Mexico Small Business Assistance program, a Santa Fe company has produced a pump system that uses wave power to send pressurized seawater onto shore where it is desalinated without the use of external energy.

Bright thinking leads to breakthrough in nuclear threat detection science

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Taking inspiration from an unusual source, a Sandia National Laboratories team has dramatically improved the science of scintillators -- objects that detect nuclear threats. According to the team, using organic glass scintillators could soon make it even harder to smuggle nuclear materials through America's ports and borders.

Sandia creates better 'fingerprints' to detect elusive, valuable chemical compounds

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories chemists David Osborn and Carl Hayden have created a custom-made instrument that has enhanced the power of a method called photoelectron photoion coincidence, or PEPICO, spectroscopy.

Mechanical engineering society elects four fellows from Sandia Labs

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Fellows of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers make up only 3.1 percent of ASME's 107,895 members. Sandia National Laboratories engineers Cliff Ho, Alexander Brown, Hy Tran and Kevin Dowding now are members of that elite group.

Researchers create ultrafast tunable semiconductor metamaterial

An international team of researchers from Moscow State University (Russia), Sandia National Laboratories (U.S.), and Friedrich-Schiller University (Germany) have devised an ultrafast tunable metamaterial based on gallium arsenide nanoparticles. Show More Summary

Trash into treasure: Sandia could help biofuel pay for itself with goods made from waste

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) A recent discovery by Sandia National Laboratories researchers may unlock the potential of biofuel waste -- and ultimately make biofuels competitive with petroleum. The researchers solved the structure of LigM, an enzyme that breaks down molecules derived from the biofuel waste product lignin. Show More Summary

Team develops math techniques to improve computational efficiency in quantum chemistry

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have developed new mathematical techniques to advance the study of molecules at the quantum level.

New management takes over New Mexico-based national lab

The head of a new management team in charge of New Mexico-based Sandia National Laboratories says the mission of the sprawling weapons and research facility will continue to be national … Click to Continue »

UH graduate mathematics student earns DOE research award

(University of Houston) A University of Houston student working on his doctoral degree in applied mathematics will work at Sandia National Laboratory as part of a graduate student research program offered by the U.S. Department of Energy. Show More Summary

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.
