Teens who built 3D printers during a weeklong robotics camp at Sandia National Laboratories last year have used them to make more than 3,000 face shields that have been donated to medical professionals and first responders in New Mexico.
Distillery-developed hand sanitizer is leaving a New Mexico warehouse as quickly as it disappeared from grocery stores after Sandia National Laboratories helped confirm the product meets all federal requirements for distribution.
A recently signed New Mexico law enables Sandia and Los Alamos national laboratories to assist in turning transferred technology into viable products and services, which could boost innovation and create jobs, according to Sandia business development experts.
A new 10-year agreement between Sandia National Laboratories and the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez, has the potential to bring more reliable electricity to remote communities and the latest in electrical grid technology to rural areas in the world’s tropics. A Sandia manager who was born and grew up in Puerto Rico says the agreement will continue a decadeslong relationship with the university he attended.
A new paper-thin radio-frequency detector, developed by researchers at Sandia National Laboratories and designed to work inside a lithium-ion battery, provides information about the battery’s health while charging and discharging.
A student in the highly selective U.S. Air Force Education With Industry program will be bringing his military experience to Sandia National Laboratories and returning to his post with valuable industry experience to share. Capt. Antonio Gallop is not the typical student.
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are helping the largest power plant in the United States identify the most efficient and cost-effective strategies to reduce water use.They developed a first-of-its-kind comprehensive system dynamics analysis that can show power plants with wet cooling systems how it can save them money.
The Consortium for Integrating Energy Systems in Engineering and Science Education, CIESESE, internship program, sponsored by the National Nuclear Security Administration, connects engineering students from five Hispanic-serving institutions, including UPRM, with research at Sandia National Laboratories and the National Energy Technology Laboratory. The program has recently been extended through next summer.
Fire protection and optical engineers at Sandia National Laboratories are using high-speed cameras and advanced algorithms, imaging and analytic methods to understand these dangerous arc faults between two conductors, such as the high-voltage bus bars in a switchgear at a power plant. Flames in an arc fault experiment contain useful information that can help keep power plants operating safely.
An advanced imaging technique reveals new structural details of S-DNA, ladder-like DNA that forms when the molecule experiences extreme tension. This work conducted at Sandia National Laboratories and Vrije University in the Netherlands provides the first experimental evidence that S-DNA contains highly tilted base pairs.
Geoscience engineer Dylan Moriarty has been named the 2019 Most Promising Engineer or Scientist by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. The award is given to an American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, First Nations and other indigenous person of North America with less than five years of work experience since his or her last degree.
Logan Carpenter worked on a chicken farm through high school. Now, he conducts cybersecurity research. The link was a pipeline program that connects students at historically black colleges and universities with cybersecurity internships at Sandia and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories.
Sandia National Laboratories researchers, as part of a group of National Nuclear Security Administration scientists, have wrapped up years of field experiments to improve the United States’ ability to differentiate earthquakes from underground explosions, key knowledge needed to advance the nation’s monitoring and verification capabilities for detecting underground nuclear explosions.
For 25 years, ESTT has promoted the creation of innovative small businesses by allowing staff to leave the labs with a guaranteed job waiting if they return within two years. Spinoff tech companies such as AMPS create high-paying jobs that help stimulate local economies.
