Researchers Study Radioactive Material Behavior—Without the Radioactivity

Novel particle inquiry and outcomes are featured on cover of prominent journal

April 2019

A novel experiment applied ion irradiation and heat to a five-metal-doped cerium oxide sample to observe particle precipitation. The effort adds new knowledge to the understanding of nuclear fuel behavior.

A Bene-fish-al Solution for Salmon and Steelhead Passage

PNNL team evaluates system combining technologies in a new way for safer, more efficient fish passage

March 2019

A team of researchers from PNNL performed an evaluation of a novel technology that helps migratory fish more safely and efficiently navigate upstream around hydroelectric dams. The team found that the technology—a combination of imaging and sensor technology and transport tubes—has the potential to successfully sort and transport migratory adult salmonids when partnered with a way for fish to enter on their own.
