A team of researchers from 10 national laboratories and eight universities is conducting hydraulic shearing tests to explore the potential for geothermal energy at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF).
On the looming 10th anniversary of the Fukushima disaster at the Daiichi Power Station in Japan, PNNL looks back at the science and solidarity it has shared with Fukushima and its nuclear cleanup effort.
As he prepares to enter PNNL's Energy Sciences Center later this year, Vijayakumar 'Vijay' Murugesan is among DOE leaders exploring solutions to design and build transformative materials for batteries of the future.
As COVID-19 was limiting in-person contact, halting travel, and creating additional barriers, researchers at PNNL were working to find solutions on how they could still get work done while establishing new safety protocols.
Two PNNL researchers, one a world-leading authority on microorganisms, the other an expert on coastal ecosystem restoration, have been elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
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.
Five PNNL technologies were recently awarded six R&D 100 honors. The R&D 100 Awards, now in its 58th year, recognize pioneers in science and technology from industry, the federal government, and academia.
