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.
PNNL will provide technical support to finalists in the Incubate stage and to Grand Prize Winners following the Pitch contest stage of the Fish Protection Prize competition, which is now accepting submissions.
Pumped-storage hydropower offers the most cost-effective storage option for shifting large volumes of energy. A PNNL-led team wrote a report comparing cost and performance factors for 10 storage technologies.
A gathering of international experts in Portland, Oregon, explored the future of electron microscopy and surfaced potential solutions in areas including new instrument designs, high-speed detectors, and data analytics capabilities.
A multi-institute team develops an imaging method that reveals how uranium dioxide (UO2) reacts with air. This could improve nuclear fuel development and opens a new domain for imaging the group of radioactive elements known as actinides.
Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories have joined forces to reduce costs and improve the reliability of hydrogen fueling stations.
PNNL’s autonomous fish body double, Sensor Fish, and the miniature version, Sensor Fish Mini, were used to evaluate a special screen. Researchers found the screen provides safe downstream passage for fish at irrigation structures.
Researchers apply numerical simulations to understand more about a sturdy material and how its basic structure responds to and resists radiation. The outcomes could help guide development of the resilient materials of the future.
A radioactive chemical called pertechnetate is a bad actor when it’s in nuclear waste tanks. But researchers at PNNL and the University of South Florida have a new lead on how to selectively separate it from the nuclear waste for treatment.
Three PNNL fish researchers recently published a video journal article on how to properly implant miniature acoustic tags in juvenile Pacific lamprey and American eel and how the tags could benefit migration.
