Two PNNL interns are behind recent innovation in real-time testing and continuous monitoring for pH and the concentration of chemicals of interest in chemical solutions; outcomes have applicability not only to nuclear, but to industries.
Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory developed a software toolkit called Wire-Cell that reconstructs and isolates neutrino data in 3D. This software directly enabled the long-awaited results from the MicroBooNE experiment announced today by Fermilab in four complementary analyses. The Wire-Cell team at Brookhaven Lab led one of the four analyses—the most sensitive analysis of the electron-neutrino interaction. Some components of the Wire-Cell toolkit were also used in the other three analyses.
As the electrical grid is modernized, it requires new safeguards to keep it safe from cyberattackers. Researchers at Argonne have developed a novel security approach to find and stop cyberthreats that penetrate the IT layer, preserving grid stability.

Sandia National Laboratories has created the first device that is small, energy-efficient and reliable enough to potentially move quantum sensors — sensors that use quantum mechanics to outperform conventional technologies — from the lab into commercial use
A pioneer in material science, Meng’s new role comes with a joint appointment as a professor at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at The University of Chicago.
Starting October 25, a group of scientists will host a workshop to identify ways to create artificial intelligence-informed models of the Earth’s climate.
Sandia National Laboratories launched three sounding rockets in succession on Wednesday to hasten development of 23 technologies for the nation’s hypersonic modernization priority, including the Navy’s Conventional Prompt Strike and the Army’s Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon programs.
PNNL innovations won five awards in the competition results announced this week, with one of the laboratory's four awarded inventions garnering two awards. PNNL has received a total of 121 since the laboratory began submitting entries in 1969.
