Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Niranjan Govind
This is a multi-pronged proposal aimed at theoretical developments and modeling of a variety of spectroscopies (UV/Vis, XAS, XES, EELS, NMR, EPR, Raman), ultrafast electron (de)localization dynamics and charge transfer and transport in...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Zachary Kennedy
As part of the Chemical Dynamics Initiative at PNNL, this project and use case aim to establish testbeds to 1) create data-driven performance models for AM-produced components with uncertainties well understood; 2) streamline the correlation of...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Sandra Taylor
The objective of this work is to elucidate atomic- to nano-scale mechanisms driving the evolution of materials in extreme environments, relevant to energy applications. Current understanding of the synergistic effects of variables such as high...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Arun Devaraj
This project will conduct a comprehensive demonstration of PNNL capabilities for multimodal in situ chemical imaging of structural, compositional and chemical state changes on metallic alloy surfaces during exposure to reactive gaseous environments...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Arun Devaraj
Solid phase processing (SPP) of alloys using shear-deformation results in nanoscale metastable phases and enhanced mechanical properties. High-speed mass and energy transfer during such process makes the atomic-scale mechanisms in solid phase...
Lead Institution: University of Toronto
Principal Investigator: Daniel Gregory
This project utilizes atom probe tomography (APT) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to investigate microcrystalline masses of pyrite (FeS2) at the nano-scale. These analyses will be completed on samples from different REDOX environments in...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Vijayakumar Murugesan
The proposed research will advance fundamental knowledge about novel battery materials and address critical needs for predictive understanding of multivalent ion based energy storage systems. The work is part of Joint Center for Energy Storage...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Wu Xu
The objective of this proposal is to understand the interfacial reactions and processes occurring at the electrode/electrolyte in localized high concentration electrolytes (LHCEs) for various energy storage systems including rechargeable metal...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Arun Devaraj
This project will bring together a technically-diverse group of early career staff scientists across all directorates, for a comprehensive demonstration of PNNL capabilities for multimodal in situ chemical imaging of structural, compositional and...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Arun Devaraj
PNNL as a part of the U.S. Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration's Office of Conversion within the Office of Material Minimization and Management (M3) is working on converting the high enriched uranium (HEU) fuel...
