Evaluating Powerful Batteries for Modular Electric Grid Energy Storage

Sandia has begun lab-based characterization of TransPower’s GridSaver, the largest grid energy storage (ES) system analyzed at Sandia’s Energy Storage Test Pad. Project lead David Rosewater (in Sandia’s Energy Storage Technology and Systems Dept.) said that Sandia will evaluate the 1 MW lithium-ion grid ES system for capacity, power, safety, and reliability and also investigate the [...]

Epitaxial Growth of La2O3 on Gallium Nitride and Measuring Band Offsets

Reflection high energy electron diffraction (RHEED) images measured along the substrate <11‾20> direc­tion during the growth of a 40-nm-thick La2O3 film. Images represent the following stages of growth: (a) bare (0001)-oriented GaN, (b) 2 nm of La2O3, (c) 3 nm La2O3, (d) 5 nm La2O3, (e) 10 nm La2O3, & (f) 40 nm La2O3. Arrows indicate secondary diffrac­tion spots that are attributed to a cubic [...]
