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 […]

The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) builds on a century of excellence to create the premier lighting community dedicated to promoting the art and science of quality lighting to its members, allied professional organizations, and the public. This Regional Award is given in recognition of meritorious technical achieve­ment that has furthered the profession, art, or knowledge […]

New Sandia Mirror Isn’t Shiny: Instead It Reflects Infrared Light Using a Metamaterial

An optical wave’s reflection from metal arises from strong interactions between the optical electric field and the metal’s free carriers and is accompanied by a phase reversal of the reflected electric field. A far less common route to achieving high reflectivity exploits strong interactions between the material and the optical magnetic field to produce a […]

Sandian Selected for Outstanding Engineer Award

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Region 6: Southwest Area (encompassing New Mexico, Arizona, California, and Nevada) has selected Dr. Jose Luis Cruz-Campa (in Sandia’s MEMS* Technologies Dept.) as the recipient of their 2014 Outstanding Engineer Award for his “critical technical and leadership contributions to the development of microsystems-enabled PV (MEPV) technology and […]
