The Quest for Efficiency in Thermoelectric Nanowires

Sandia researchers say better materials and manufacturing techniques for nanowires could allow car makers to harvest power from the heat wasted by exhaust systems or lead to more efficient devices to cool computer chips. The work, “Using galvanostatic electroforming of Bi1-xSbx nanowires to control composition, crystallinity, and orientation,” published in the Materials Research Society’s Journal […]

Storing Hydrogen Underground Could Boost Transportation, Energy Security

Large-scale storage of low-pressure, gaseous hydrogen in salt caverns and other underground sites for transportation fuel and grid-scale energy applications offers several advantages over above-ground storage, says a recent Sandia study sponsored by the DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Office. Geologic storage of hydrogen gas could make it possible to produce and distribute large quantities of […]

Two Sandia Leaders Elected American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellows

Gil Herrera (Director of Sandia’s Microsystems Science, Technology, and Components Center and head of Sandia’s Microsystems and Engineering Sciences Applications [MESA] complex) and Steve Rottler (Vice President of Sandia’s California laboratory and leader of the Labs’ Energy and Climate PMU), two key members of Sandia National Laboratories’ senior leadership team, have been elected American Association […]

Sandia Wins DOE Geothermal Technologies Office Funding Award

The DOE’s Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) selected twelve collaborative enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) R&D projects that will use novel techniques (such as isotope studies, innovative rock-mechanics experiments, and tracer studies integrated with geophysical methods) to increase the precision and accuracy of measuring critical underground reservoir properties over time. EGS are engineered reservoirs, created beneath the […]
