Sandia Labs Wins 5 Regional Technology Transfer Awards

Sandia National Laboratories won five awards from the 2017 Federal Laboratory Consortium for its work to develop and commercialize innovative technologies. The annual FLC awards program recognizes federal laboratories and their industry partners for outstanding technology transfer achievements.

Cleaning up subways: Sandia's 20-year mission to stop anthrax in its tracks

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories engineer Mark Tucker has spent much of the past 20 years thinking about incidents involving chemical or biological warfare agents, and the best ways to clean them up. Tucker's current project focuses on cleaning up a subway system after the release of a biological warfare agent such as anthrax.

Nanotechnology experts at Sandia create first terahertz-speed polarization optical switch

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) A Sandia National Laboratories-led team has for the first time used optics rather than electronics to switch a nanometer-thick thin film device from completely dark to completely transparent, or light, at a speed of trillionths of a second.

Sandia's Radiation analysis software makes emergency responders' jobs quicker, easier

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Decision-makers in emergency situations can now turn to a new Sandia National Laboratories-developed tool called InterSpec. A software application available for both mobile and traditional computing devices, InterSpec can rapidly and accurately analyze gamma radiation data collected at the scene.

Aerospace test at Sandia goes green with alternative to explosives

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Sandia National Laboratories has successfully demonstrated a new, more environmentally friendly method to test a rocket part to ensure its avionics can withstand the shock from stage separation during flight.

Giant gas gun replaces explosives in rocket part testing

3 weeks agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico has been up to big things lately. Just a few days ago, the facility reported replicating the energy found on the edges of black holes, upending a theory about how we measure the big gravity sinks and possibly leading to a lot of recalculations by astrophysicists.

Beating the heat with nanoparticle films

It is a truth acknowledged throughout much of the world, that a car sitting in the sun on a summer's day must be sweltering. However, a partnership between Sandia National Laboratories and Santa Fe, New Mexico-based IR Dynamics may soon challenge that truth.

Beating the heat with nanoparticle films

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) A partnership between Sandia National Laboratories and Santa Fe, New Mexico-based IR Dynamics is turning nano-size particles that reflect heat, or infrared radiation, into window films for offices, houses, even cars.

Aerospace test at Sandia goes green with alternative to explosives

Sandia National Laboratories has successfully demonstrated a new, more environmentally friendly method to test a rocket part to ensure its avionics can withstand the shock from stage separation during flight.

There is lightning being made In Albuquerque, New Mexico. But unlike the kind that shoots between sky and earth, this lightning takes place inside the Z machine at Sandia National Laboratories. The lighting made inside this miracle of...Show More Summary

Black hole models contradicted by hands-on tests at Sandia's Z machine

A long-standing but unproven assumption about the X-ray spectra of black holes in space has been contradicted by hands-on experiments performed at Sandia National Laboratories' Z machine.

Black hole models contradicted by hands-on tests at Sandia's Z machine

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Models of black holes that rely upon an assumption made 20 years ago need revision.

Biofuels from bacteria

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories is helping a Bay Area company better understand whether cyanobacteria can be grown for biofuels on a large scale.

Balloons and drones and clouds; oh, my!

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Last week, researchers at Sandia National Laboratories flew a tethered balloon and an unmanned aerial system, colloquially known as a drone, together for the first time to get Arctic atmospheric temperatures with better location control than ever before.

Researchers collect more precise weather, climate data with help from unmanned aerial system

The good, the bad and the algae

(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories is testing whether one of California's largest and most polluted lakes can transform into one of its most productive and profitable. Southern California's 350-square-mile...Show More Summary

Another Democratic lawyer jumps in New Mexico Congress race

Another Democrat is jumping into an already crowded race for an open congressional seat in central New Mexico. Annie Chavez, an attorney and Sandia National Laboratories government relations official, announced … Click to Continue »

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.
