His research is dedicated to the development of experimental tools and expertise critical for controlled synthesis and characterization of complex oxides, and gaining deep understanding of structure-composition-function relationships.
PNNL and collaborator LanzaTech were honored April 24 for their partnership in the development and commercialization of an ethanol-based synthetic paraffinic jet fuel that can use any sustainable ethanol as a feedstock.
The Soil Science Society of America presents Nik Qafoku with the 2019 Jackson Award for contributions in soil chemistry and mineralogy—ranging from agricultural fertilizer efficiency in Albania to soil contaminant transport at Hanford.
A radioactive chemical called pertechnetate is a bad actor when it’s in nuclear waste tanks. But researchers at PNNL and the University of South Florida have a new lead on how to selectively separate it from the nuclear waste for treatment.
Researchers at PNNL have developed a patent-pending technique for a faster and improved way to count bacteria and measure their growth, without killing the sample, by using a white light interferometer.
Many of the ultimate applications of PNNL’s nuclear science and engineering capabilities rely on building a fundamental understanding of how materials behave while undergoing irradiation or in radioactive environments.
