To support next generation computing, communication, and sensing needs, Sandia researchers have successfully developed a silicon photonics platform that leverages the semiconductor and nanotechnology capabilities of Sandia’s Microsystems and Engineering Sciences Applications (MESA) complex to create optical components for multiple applications.
A mechanically robust, horizontally polarized dual-band GPS antenna with improved performance in cluttered signal environments Antennas are ubiquitous in devices and systems used by consumers, industry, and government. Often, these systems employ multiple antennas which can result in undesired interference that reduces the effectiveness of sensitive GPS systems. A need exists for GPS antennas that [...]
CHIRP is a Virtual Machine Introspection (VMI)-based cloud forensics platform that enables analysts and defenders to collect evidence and incident response materials in real time, without disturbing the user environment or alerting the intruder The shift to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) has brought challenges to cyber Incident Response (IR) and forensics teams investigating not only breaches and [...]
Secure Quantum Authentication is the ultimate protection for companies that provide and have a need for secure physical equipment assemblies, facilities such as banks using verification of keys for vaults, and any organization that relies on ID cards for secure access and use. This technology is different from others in that it is inherently protected [...]
A non-destructive coating to enhance observations of dynamic thermal strain and reduce false positives in sonic infrared (SIR) inspections Evaluating components for discontinuities without damaging the part or system remains a priority for diverse industries and research fields. Low-cost techniques such as fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI) are in widespread use by major industries, such as [...]
Improved control of initiation and detonation from enhanced substrates with minimal post-processing and fabrication compared to traditional explosive processes In high explosives, the density and porosity of energetic materials contributes to initiation and detonation characteristics. Traditional explosive processing methods like melt casting or powder pressing are known for their less than optimal control of initiation [...]

Technology Summary Sandia National Laboratories developed an organic glass scintillator that will improve safety and security at our nation’s ports and borders. Current radiation monitors typically utilize plastic scintillators, which are unable to differentiate between special nuclear materials and normal or non-threatening sources of radiation without a separate helium tube. The type of helium used [...]
