Sandian’s Receive Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Program Achievement Award

On June 17th at the 2014 DOE EERE Fuel Cell Technology Office (FCTO) Annual Merit Review in Washington DC, Sandian’s Christopher San Marchi (manager of Sandia’s Hydrogen and Metallurgy Science Dept.) and Brian Somerday (also in the Hydrogen and Metallurgy Science Dept.) received a DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Program achievement award for their research [...]

Wind Generator Modeling

Sandia finalized and submitted the updated “WECC Wind Power Plant Dynamic Model­ing Guide” and the “WECC PV Power Plant Dynamic Modeling Guide” to the Technical Studies Subcommittee at the Western Elec­tricity Coordinating Council (WECC). These dynamic modeling guides present the second-generation generic models as speci­fied in the January 23, 2014 WECC report. The WECC generic [...]

Sandia Researcher Stephanie Hansen Wins DOE Early Career Research Award

A $2.5M, five-year Early Career Research Program award from the DOE Office of Science has been won by researcher Stephanie Hansen (in Sandia’s ICF Target Design Dept.) for her fundamental science proposal, “Non-equilibrium atomic physics in high energy density material,” an approach to improve simulation tools used to design high-energy experiments in dense, hot plasmas, [...]

Nanoparticle Self-Assembly Simulations Featured on the Cover of Nanoscale

Matt Lane (in Sandia’s Computational Materials and Data Science Dept.) worked with Gary Grest (in Sandia’s Nanostructure Physics Dept.) to understand the assembly of coated nanoparticles on the surface of water. Using atom-scale simulation, the researchers de­termined that subtle changes in particle coating can dramatically alter the morphologies of self-assembled nanoparticle structures. Their research shows [...]

Get Ready for the Computers of the Future: Sandia Launches Push to Innovate Next-Generation Machines

Sandia computing experts have launched an effort to help discover what computers of the future might look like, from next-generation supercomputers to systems that learn on their own—new machines that do more while using less energy. “We think that by combining capabilities in microelectronics and computer architecture, Sandia can help initiate the jump to the [...]
