Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Lance Hubbard
Tracing the flow of solid matter requires elements with uniquely identifiable signatures. Pigments tagged with luminescent core-shell nanoparticles (CSNPs) can have tunable photoluminescence (PL) dependent on the material composition and core/shell...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Steven Luksic
X-ray computed tomography (CT) analysis will support waste-glass research and Hanford Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant start-up by analyzing high-temperature glass melts using a furnace specially adapted for use in the CT instrument....
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: Jon Schwantes
We will utilize x-ray computed tomography (CT) and radiography as a non-destructive forensic tool in order to generate high resolution 2D and 3D images of a number of radiologically contaminated components of the irradiator and sealed source...
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: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Steven Luksic
X-ray computed tomography (CT) analysis will support waste-glass research by analyzing room-temperature samples and adapting a furnace for use in the CT instrument. Developing a glass-melting furnace in the CT instrument will allow unprecedented...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Mark Rockhold
Building and refining the capability to detect and locate suspected subsurface nuclear explosions are part of United States’ security priorities (Broome et al., 2016). To improve understanding of subsurface flow and transport of gas associated with...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Christopher Barrett
The proposed work seeks to develop a modeling-prescribed measurement strategy to generate the data necessary to build a finite element model from which an additively manufactured objects’ performance can be predicted. Data analytics will be used in...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Carlos Fernandez
Through this proposal EMSL will provide experimental resources for enhanced energy production and subsurface science discovery that supports the needs of DOE and the nation. These proposed investigations will support the development of novel...
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...
