One such display included a hands-on exhibit on solid-state lighting that illustrated the differences [...]

Miniature Sandia Sensors’ Self-Sealing Valves May Advance Climate Studies

Air-quality monitoring can be a tricky business. Gasses may be blown into the sampling site from another area, they may leak out of an air sample before it can be analyzed, or the sampling container itself may introduce compounds, emitted through off-gassing. If samples are being gathered in remote areas, it can also be difficult getting bulky [...]

CRF Researchers answer Alan Alda’s Flame Challenge
