A cadre of physical scientists, engineers and computing experts at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is poised to participate in the launch of three new DOE Office of Science-sponsored quantum information science research centers.
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.
A new PNNL report says the western U.S. power system can handle large-scale vehicle electrification up to 24 million vehicles through 2028, but more than that and cities could start feeling the squeeze.
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.
A technology developed by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory could pave the way for increased fuel economy and lower greenhouse gas emissions as part of an octane on demand fuel-delivery.
Researchers at PNNL have come up with a novel way to use silicon as an energy storage ingredient, replacing the graphite in electrodes. Silicon can hold 10 times the electrical charge per gram, but it comes with problems of its own.
PNNL and the U.S. Forest Service used a combination of data, models, analytical techniques and software to evaluate forest restoration impacts on the environment, while also assessing the economics of resulting biomass.
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.
