Neutrino mass, a crucial piece of many unresolved physics puzzles, may one day be revealed through a novel measurement system that has just proven its mettle: Cyclotron Radiation Emission Spectroscopy.
Physicist Emily Mace will share her science journey and an interactive presentation about her current research with middle school and high school students from across the country at the National Science Bowl.
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.
Developed at PNNL, Shear Assisted Processing and Extrusion, or ShAPE™, uses significantly less energy and can deliver components like wire, tubes and bars 10 times faster than conventional extrusion, with no sacrifice in quality.
PNNL provided ultra-low measurements of argon-39 to date groundwater as part of a collaborative study of the aquifer in California’s San Joaquin Valley. PNNL is one of only a few laboratories worldwide with this capability.
In recognition of Nuclear Science Week on Oct. 19-23, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory reflects on more than half a century of advancing nuclear science for the nation’s energy, environment, and security frontiers.
Researchers at PNNL have increased the conductivity of copper wire by about five percent via a process called Shear Assisted Processing and Extrusion. General Motors tested the wire for application in vehicle motor components.
