Joint BioEnergy Institute Oxime–NIMS Work Featured on the Cover of ACS Chemical Biology

The oxime-based nanostructure-initiator mass spectrometry (NIMS) work of Kai Deng (in Sandia’s Biotechnology & Bioengineering Dept.) et al. titled “Rapid Kinetic Characterization of Glycosyl Hydrolases Based on Oxime Derivatization and Nanostructure-Initiator Mass Spectrometry (NIMS)” is featured on the cover of ACS Chemical Biology. The multi-institutional team, which also included Jian Shi, Seema Singh, and Kenneth Sale [...]

Understanding Seasonal Effects of WEC Operation using the SNL-SWAN Wave Model Application

Sandia researchers are investigating the seasonal effects of a wave-energy converter (WEC) array on nearshore wave propagation using SNL-SWAN. WECs were simulated as obstacles with frequency-dependent transmission coefficients that were determined based on the incoming wave height and period. The research team created frequency distributions of seasonal wave parameters (significant wave height, peak wave period, [...]

Sandia Student Wins Best Paper Award at IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference

Matthew Reno, a Sandian and an electrical engineering PhD candidate at the Georgia Institute of Technology, was given a Best Student Paper award for research reported in, “Impact of PV Variability and Ramping Events on Distribution Voltage Regulation Equipment” at the 40th Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC) held in [...]
