It’s been a common trope in films since the 1950s; a madman with an atomic bomb holds a city for ransom while the authorities race to find it in time. If such a thing ever does come about, Sandia National Laboratories is working on taking...Show More Summary
Dropping a nuclear warhead may not seem like a particularly bright idea, but earlier this year Sandia National Laboratories did just that. As part of the US government’s Life Extension Program (LEP) for its nuclear arsenal, the inert...Show More Summary
A 3-year, $6.3 million dollar project to improve every aspect of the American wind turbine production process/industry was recently begun via a partnership between Sandia National Laboratories, Iowa State University, and TPI Composites (an operator of a wind turbine blade factory).

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories' Z machine have produced a significant output of fusion neutrons, using a method fully functioning for only little more than a year. The experimental work is described in a paper to be published in the Sept. Show More Summary
A number of existing gas stations in California can safely store and dispense hydrogen, suggesting that a larger network of hydrogen fueling stations may soon be possible, according to a study by Sandia National Laboratories. Several car makers, including GM, Daimler, Hyundai-Kia, and Ford have been working to develop hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, with varying roll-out dates […]
Once you have one of those super cool, super high tech fuel cell EVs parked in your driveway, where are you going to go when you need a refill? The folks over at Sandia National Laboratory have an answer: at a filling station. No, really...Show More Summary
LIVERMORE, Calif. — A study by researchers at Sandia National Laboratories concludes that a number of existing gas stations in California can safely store and dispense hydrogen, suggesting a broader network of hydrogen fueling stations may be within reach. read more
An Albuquerque startup company has licensed a Sandia National Laboratories technology that offers a way to make molybdenum-99, a key radioactive isotope needed for diagnostic imaging in nuclear medicine, in the United States.
LIVERMORE, Calif. — Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories, along with collaborators from Rice University and the Tokyo Institute of Technology, are developing new terahertz detectors based on carbon nanotubes that could lead to significant improvements in medical imaging, airport passenger screening, food inspection and other applications. read more
Summer is the ideal time to frolic out in the sun, but there's always the risk that you'll neglect the amount of water that you're taking in. Sandia National Laboratories is hoping to put an end to that, after designing a wrist-worn sensor that lets...
In an effort to better understand what persuades people to buy photovoltaic (PV) systems for their homes, researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are gathering data on consumer motivations that can feed sophisticated computer models...Show More Summary
Sandia National Laboratories is beginning work on a long-term project to design a computer that has more in common with the structure and function of the brain. Researchers hope that a neuro-inspired design will be more flexible and efficient, just like the brain.
LIVERMORE, Calif.— A recent Sandia National Laboratories study offers insight into how a federal transportation security officer's thought process can influence decisions made during airport baggage screening, findings that are helping the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) improve the performance of its security officers. read more
A credit-card-sized anthrax detection cartridge developed at Sandia National Laboratories and recently licensed to a small business makes testing safer, easier, faster and cheaper.
Sandia National Laboratories has finished eight days of testing a full-scale mock unit representing the aerodynamic characteristics of the B61-12 gravity bomb in a wind tunnel. The tests on the mock-up were done to establish the configuration...Show More Summary
This article is pertinent to how many experts envision a LFTR (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) producing electricity without the use of water. Excerpted from an article by Principle Investigator Steven Wright In most respects, carbon dioxide is an energy problem. Show More Summary
A new fuel cell technology demonstration project led by Sandia National Laboratories will be deployed to the Port of Honolulu by 2015 to show how the portable unit can lower emissions and reduce energy consumption. The unit will fit inside a 20-foot shipping container and will consist of four 30-kilowatt fuel cells, a hydrogen storage […]
