Sandia National Laboratories is developing specialized computer modeling and simulation methods to better understand how blasts on a battlefield could lead to traumatic brain injury and injuries to vital organs, like the heart and lungs.
Sandia National Laboratories researchers want to use small magnetic sensors to image the brain in a way that's simpler and less expensive than the magnetoencephalography system now used.
Sheets of plastic similar to that used for garbage bags, packing tape, some string, a little charcoal dust and a white shoebox-size box are more than odds and ends. These are the supplies Danny Bowman, a Sandia National Laboratories geophysicist, needs to build a solar-powered hot air balloon for detecting infrasound.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories and Montana Tech University have demonstrated an R&D 100 award-winning control system that smooths out inter-area oscillations using new smart grid technology in the western power grid. Show More Summary
Solder isn't the first thing that comes to mind as essential to a nuclear weapon. But since weapons contain hundreds of thousands of solder joints, each potentially a point of failure, Sandia National Laboratories has developed and refined computer models to predict their performance and reliability.
Research at Sandia National Laboratories has identified a major obstacle to advancing solid-state lithium-ion battery performance in small electronics: the flow of lithium ions across battery interfaces.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) A printing process uses natural forces to grow an inexpensive catalyst to replace platinum to lower the cost of hydrogen-powered cars.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia researchers have created an alternative reality to mislead hackers, damaging the credibility of any information collected by cyberintruders.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Gene editing holds great promise for 'deleting' diseases from human bodies. Sandia National Laboratories is working to make this technology safer and to ensure that one day it can be delivered into humans without triggering adverse immune system reactions or causing other undesirable side effects.
A team of computer scientists and engineers from Sandia National Laboratories and Boston University recently received a prestigious award at the International Supercomputing conference for their paper on automatically diagnosing problems in supercomputers.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) A team of computer scientists and engineers from Sandia National Laboratories and Boston University recently won the Gauss Award at the International Supercomputing conference for their paper about using machine learning to automatically diagnose problems in supercomputers.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) A Sandia National Laboratories-led team has demonstrated faster, more efficient ways to turn discarded plant matter into chemicals worth billions.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Sandia National Laboratories has been helping the US Army identify the best equipment for temporary bases overseas since 2013. For the first time, a Sandia-designed software tool is being used to recommend the core set of equipment for bases to be built in 2020 and beyond.
A new optical device at Sandia National Laboratories that helps researchers image pollutants in combusting fuel sprays might lead to clearer skies in the future.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Compared to wind and solar energy, wave energy has remained relatively expensive and hard to capture, but engineers from Sandia National Laboratories are working to change that by drawing inspiration...Show More Summary
Compared to wind and solar energy, wave energy has remained relatively expensive and hard to capture, but engineers from Sandia National Laboratories are working to change that by drawing inspiration from other industries.
Concentrating solar power (CSP) plants can be a key part of a comprehensive renewable energy strategy, but progress is often focused on making the facilities bigger and bigger. Now, engineers from Sandia National Laboratories are improving...Show More Summary
Sandia National Laboratories engineers have developed new fractal-like, concentrating solar power receivers for small- to medium-scale use that are up to 20 percent more effective at absorbing sunlight than current technology.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) The R2R WATCH (Rim-to-Rim Wearables at the Canyon for Health) study, a collaborative project between Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico.
(DOE/Sandia National Laboratories) Power plants draw more freshwater than any other consumer in the United States, accounting for more than 50 percent of the nation's freshwater use at about 500 billion gallons daily.To help save this...Show More Summary
