Tonopah, test range, non-nuclear testing

Upgrades at Sandia’s Tonopah Test Range Help Weapons Testing


It’s been a challenge for Sandia National Laboratories' Tonopah Test Range to keep decades-old equipment running while gathering detailed information required for 21st century non-nuclear testing. The Nevada test range has changed the analog brains in instruments to digital, moved to modern communications systems, and upgraded telemetry and tracking equipment and computing systems.

Shining Light on Low-Energy Electrons


The classic method for studying how electrons interact with matter is by analyzing their scattering through thin layers of a known substance. This happens by directing a stream of electrons at the layer and analyzing the subsequent deviations in the electrons’ trajectories. But researchers in Switzerland have devised a way to examine the movement of low-energy electrons that can adversely impact electronic systems and biological tissue. They discuss this in this week’s The Journal of Chemical Physics.

New Plutonium Discovery Lights Way for FSU Chemistry Professor’s Work to Clean Up Nuclear Waste


New research by a Florida State University professor reveals that plutonium's electronic properties are more complex than previously thought and that the element operates more like lighter elements such as iron or nickel.
