Sandia scientists achieve breakthrough in tackling PFAS contamination
A team is developing materials to tackle one of the biggest problems in the world and a major national security issue: human exposure to PFAS through contaminated water and other products.
Sandia switches to hydrogen weather balloons
By switching the gas used in their balloons, Sandia researchers have reduced their metaphorical footprint on the fragile Arctic ecosystem.
Protecting canisters against corrosion
Researchers test coatings on stainless steel, which is used for canisters that hold spent nuclear fuel, to determine the best materials to protect the containers from corrosive sea air.
Let’s get cracking
Geoscientists have detected gases released from fractured rocks in real time, which could improve the prediction of earthquakes or help locate underground explosions.
Electric vehicle battery safety takes the front seat
A Sandia-led team is working to create more affordable, convenient, efficient and resilient electric vehicle batteries.
Enhancing advanced nuclear reactor analysis
