As the world races to discover solutions for reaching net zero carbon emissions, a PNNL analysis quantifies the economic value of the existing nuclear power fleet and its carbon-free energy contributions.
A new testbed facility capable of testing superconducting qubit fidelity in a controlled environment free of stray background radiation will benefit quantum information sciences and the development of quantum computing.
Tiffany Kaspar’s work has advanced the discovery and understanding of oxide materials, helping develop electronics, quantum computing, and energy production. She strives to communicate her science to the public.
To support federal energy agencies in meeting renewed environmental policies, PNNL is identifying the mechanisms and practices that could enhance agencies’ existing environmental justice programs, policies, and activities.
Scott Chambers creates layered structures of thin metal oxide films and studies their properties, creating materials not found in nature. He will soon move his instrumentation and research to the new Energy Sciences Center.
With quantum chemistry, researchers led by PNNL computational scientist Simone Raugei are discovering how enzymes such as nitrogenase serve as natural catalysts that efficiently break apart molecular bonds to control energy and matter.
