Sandia/CA receives joint awards with LLNL for environmental stewardship

This summer, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) announced the Pollution Prevention (P2) awards, given to national laboratories and sites for innovative efforts in environmental stewardship. Sandia/CA received recognition for two of our efforts that were conducted jointly with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The first award went to the Fresh @ the Labs project,…

New work by CRF researchers chosen as a “HOT” paper in the journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics

The oxygen atom is a critical oxidizer of hydrocarbons in high temperature combustion.  Combustion models need to predict the products of these reactions accurately. Unlike other oxidizers, when O atoms react with hydrocarbons it is difficult to predict the products because of the effects of electron spin. New research that simultaneously measures multiple products of…

CRF Researchers Lead Discussion on Laser Induced Incandescence

CRF researcher Hope Michelsen led discussions on Laser Induced Incandescence (LII) modeling at the 5th International Workshop on LII, held in France. Ray Bambha, also from Sandia, presented a talk entitled “Effects of particle coatings on LII” with Michelsen and CRF researchers Mark Dansson and Paul Schrader. CRF researcher Scott Skeen presented a talk entitled…
