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.
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.
PNNL teamed with academia and industry to develop a novel zero-emission methane pyrolysis process that produces both hydrogen and high-value carbon solids suitable for an array of manufacturing applications.
New facility that will accelerate energy storage innovation and make the nation’s power grid more resilient, secure and flexible has been given the green light to proceed by the U.S. Department of Energy.
PNNL led a multi-institutional effort to design a highly active and more durable catalyst made from cobalt, which sets the foundation for fuel cells to power transportation, stationary and backup power, and more.
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.
Radiation from natural sources in the environment can limit the performance of superconducting quantum bits, known as qubits. The discovery has implications for quantum computing and for the search for dark matter.
