American Geophysical Union Publishes Hope Michelsen’s Induction to Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame

The April 9 issue of EOS, Transactions of the American Geophysical Union, ran a news item in their “Geophysisicists Honors” section about Hope Michelsen’s (in the Combustion Chemistry Dept.) induction into the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame ([94(15), p 144], announced here in February). The American Geophysical Union is the world’s largest professional society for geophysicists [...]

Implemented “Vertically Lagrangian” Option in the Community Atmosphere Model

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a state-of-the-art global climate model being developed with the support of the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy and used for climate-change science and assessments. Sandia has been leading a multilaboratory effort to develop a new “dynamical core” for CESM’s atmospheric component. This new dynamical core [...]

Sandia Quantum Transport Article Was the 12th Most Downloaded Paper from AIP’s Applied Physics Letters in February

Research on topological insulators (TIs) has drawn intensive interests. The type-II InAs/GaSb heterostructure, due to its unusual alignment of the conduction and valence band edges of InAs and GaSb, is predicted to be a two-dimensional (2D) TI. Historically, type-II InAs/GaSb heterostructures have been extensively studied for infrared applications. With the new prediction as a 2D [...]

PV Paper Published in IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy

Sandians Mathew Lave and Joshua Stein ( both in the Photovoltaics and Distributed Systems Dept.) along with Jan Kleissl (University of California–San Diego) published “A Wavelet-Based Variability Model (WVM) for Solar PV Power Plants” in the April 2013 IEEE Transactions issue. (Matthew Lave was a Sandia student intern when this work was being done and [...]

CRF Researchers Measure Reaction Rates of Second Key Atmospheric Component

Researchers at Sandia’s Combustion Research Facility, the University of Manchester, Bristol University, University of Southampton, and Hong Kong Polytechnic have successfully measured reaction rates of a second Criegee intermediate, CH3CHOO, and proven that the reactivity of the atmospheric chemical depends strongly on which way the molecule is twisted. The measurements will provide further insight into [...]
