Dedication, curiosity earn chemist DOE Early Career Research Award

LIVERMORE, Calif. — After earning a Department of Energy Early Career Research Award, Krupa Ramasesha plans to launch an in-depth study of how interactions of nanoparticles with light drive chemistry — possibly the first step in helping the nation end its dependence on fossil fuels. “The goal of my work under the early career award […]

Sandia researchers first to measure thermoelectric behavior by ‘Tinkertoy’ materials

LIVERMORE, Calif. — Sandia National Laboratories researchers have made the first measurements of thermoelectric behavior by a nanoporous metal-organic framework (MOF), a development that could lead to an entirely new class of materials for such applications as cooling computer chips and cameras and energy harvesting. “These results introduce MOFs as a new class of thermoelectric […]

Engineering better machines and buildings by understanding mechanics of materials

Sandia project to fill gaps by linking atomic structure with how parts perform ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Humans have used metals for thousands of years, but there’s still a lot about them that isn’t fully understood. Just how much stretching, bending or compression a particular metal will take is determined by mechanical properties that can vary […]
