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.
Editors of the journal Emission Control Science and Technology deemed “Coating Distribution in a Commercial SCR Filter” Best Paper in 2018. The authors include PNNL's Mark Stewart, Carl Justin Kamp, Feng Gao, Yilin Wang, and Mark Engelhard.
Three PNNL fish researchers recently published a video journal article on how to properly implant miniature acoustic tags in juvenile Pacific lamprey and American eel and how the tags could benefit migration.
PNNL researchers Jianming Lian, Karanjit Kalsi, joint appointee Wei Zhang, and former PNNL intern Sen Li recently received a patent for a market mechanism consisting of novel bidding and clearing strategies.
Researchers have come up with a new method for creating synthetic “colored” nanodiamonds, a step on the path to realization of quantum computing, which promises to solve problems far beyond the abilities of current supercomputers.
PNNL materials scientist Kevin Simmons is part of a collaboration that was recognized for work in hydrogen safety, codes and standards recently at the DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program annual merit review and peer evaluation.
