Sandia’s robotic work cell conducts high-throughput testing ‘in an instant’
With 3D printing, you can make almost anything in a matter of hours. However, making sure 3D-printed parts work reliably takes weeks or even months. To speed up the process, Sandia scientists have designed and built a six-sided work cell around a commercial robot that conducts high-throughput testing to quickly determine how well those parts perform.
Five seconds at F/16, with a broken camera
In May 1998, Sandia photojournalist Randy Montoya captured a photo that has since become legend. The stunning image, nicknamed "Arcs and Sparks," captures the Z machine just as it fires — a mere 100 nanoseconds of roughly 200 trillion watts of x-ray energy, many times all the electrical power generated in the world at any given moment.
DOE classifies Winalee Carter as ‘excellent’
In recognition of her exceptional service, Winalee Carter last month received the Department of Energy’s 2018 Classification Award of Excellence at the 53rd annual Classification Officers Technical Program Review meeting in Germantown, Maryland.
