The Z-machine at Sandia National Laboratory, a former dark horse among accelerators meant to produce conditions required for nuclear fusion, is doing much better now, thank you. Researchers increased the machine's X-ray power output by nearly 10 times in the last two years. The most recent advance resulted in an output X-ray power of 290 trillion watts--about 80 times the entire world's output of electricity. The increased power will be a major contribution to the Department of Energy's (DOE) science-based approach to stockpile stewardship. This program dictates that DOE must use giant computing and laboratory experimentsto sustain the nation's nuclear stockpile without above- or below-ground tests. FAX (505) 844-6367.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
