The virtuous cycle: Synergy between science and engineering enables exceptional results
Ice sheet modeling of Greenland, Antarctica helps predict sea-level rise
A team of Sandia researchers has been improving computational models that describe ice sheet behavior and dynamics. The research is part of a five-year project called Predicting Ice Sheet and Climate Evolution at Extreme Scales.
Decon, bombs, and above and beyond
Sandia won the national Federal Laboratory Consortium’s (FLC) 2016 Award for Excellence in Technology Transfer for a decontamination product that neutralizes chemical and biological agents and for software that helps emergency responders more effectively disable improvised explosive devices (IEDs). And business development specialist Bianca Thayer (8549) was named Outstanding Technology Transfer Professional of 2016.
Nondestructive Testing: Sandia looks inside composites
Sandia’s developing nondestructive ways to detect damage in composites, using traditional medical inspection techniques such as X-rays and sonograms and advanced methods including infrared imaging, ultrasonic spectroscopy and computed tomography.
When lightning strikes
Sandia researchers break down lightning strikes into microseconds
Headlights of a laboratory
Laboratory Directed Research & Development (LDRD) was established in 1990 by Congress to let scientists at national laboratories do creative, innovative, independent research.
