Sandia Decon Formulation for Mitigation and Decontamination of CBW Agents

A complete national program for protection against the chemical and biological warfare (CBW) threat must include elements for rapid response to such a threat. In the event of a domestic CBW attack, technologies to quickly decontaminate the area are necessary for two main reasons. First, the initial responders to the scene must be able to [...]

Organic Glass for Radiation Detection

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 [...]
