The UT delegation visited Sandia last week to get an overview of Sandia’s technical program and to explore joint collaboration projects of mutual interest.
In addition to a tour of the Z facility, the delegation visited the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (operated jointly by Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratory) and received a briefing about Sandia’s science, technology, and engineering (ST&E) capabilities from Div. 1000 VP Steve Rottler.
Energy Systems Center 6200 Director Margie Tatro provided an overview of the Labs’ interests and direction in energy research and Jerry led a discussion about issues around national security. Technical hosts for the visit were Engineering Sciences Center Director 1500 Art Ratzel and National Security Studies Dept. 0545 Manager Mark Ladd.
