A 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan that knocked out a nuclear power plant helped inspire PNNL computational scientists looking for clues of future nuclear reactor mishaps by tracking radioactive iodine.
New technique galvanizes iron-based nanoparticles to create an exceptional catalyst. PNNL researchers describe a new technique that produces metal nanoparticles supported on solid iron oxide, in one step, at near room temperature.
PNNL is managing the Data Archive and Portal, which provides the wind research community with secure, timely, easy, and open access to all data brought in from research under DOE’s Atmosphere to Electrons program.
A team of researchers is working to expand our uranium chemistry understanding using a surprising tool: lasers. This capability gives never-before-seen insight into uranium gas-phase oxidation during nuclear explosions.
The world’s largest scientific society honored Sue B. Clark, a PNNL and WSU chemist, for contributions toward resolving our legacy of radioactive waste, advancing nuclear safeguards, and developing landmark nuclear research capabilities.
PNNL and Argonne researchers developed and tested a chemical process that successfully captures radioactive byproducts from used nuclear fuel so they could be sent to advanced reactors for destruction while also producing electrical power.
B3? E4? Remember the board game Battleship? One player suggests a set of coordinates to another, hoping to find the elusive location of an unseen vessel.That is a good place to start in assessing the search for dark matter.
