A study co-led by PNNL and reviewed in Science investigates how nanomaterials—both ancient and modern—cycle through the Earth’s air, water, and land, and calls for a better understanding of how they affect the environment and human health.
Patricia Huestis, a collaborator in the Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials (IDREAM) Energy Frontier Research Center, has been awarded the DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) award.
Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are working to realize an entirely new kind of computing that could revolutionize research in areas ranging from clean energy to secure communications.
PNNL scientists have taken one of the most in-depth looks ever at the riot of protein activity that underlies colon cancer and have identified potential new molecular targets to try to stop the disease.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and PNNL partnered to complete—in record time—an environmental impact statement for the nation’s first small modular nuclear reactor, to be sited at Clinch River, Tenn.
It’s hot in there! PNNL researchers take a close, but nonradioactive, look at metal particle formation in a nuclear fuel surrogate material. What they found will help fill knowledge gaps and could lead to better nuclear fuel designs.
Included in his journeys to the likes of Microsoft, Palantir, IBM, Corning Glass and MIT was a stop at EMSL, the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory. That visit nearly six years ago made an impression.
PNNL’s Johannes Lercher was one of 148 researchers recognized at the annual conference of the National Academy of Inventors, held April 10-11, 2019 in Houston, Texas. Lercher recently achieved NAI fellow status, a highly selective honor.
Josef "Pepa" Matyas, a materials scientist in PNNL’s Nuclear Sciences Division, has been elected a fellow of the American Ceramic Society (ACerS). He will be recognized at the ACerS annual meeting on September 30, 2019, in Portland, Ore.
In one of the largest blockchain grid-cyber projects of its kind, PNNL is working with a network of industry partners to test and demonstrate blockchain’s ability to increase the cybersecurity resilience of power grid.
