America’s Nuclear Waste – No Solution in Sight

America’s nuclear waste is accumulating at over seventy sites in 39 states – but there is no clear way forward for its final disposal.

An international cast of experts explains how the U.S. nuclear waste program arrived at gridlock – and suggest some steps that may be taken to move the program forward.

This video was recorded as part of Stanford University’s “Reset of U.S. Nuclear Waste Management Strategy and Policy Series,” held at the Center for International Security and Cooperation on September 30–October 1, 2015.

    New 3D printing method promises faster printing with multiple materials

    Advancements in 3D printing have made it easier for designers and engineers to customize projects, create physical prototypes at different scales, and produce structures that can’t be made with more traditional manufacturing techniques. But the technology still faces limitations – the proce ... more

    How benign water transforms into harsh hydrogen peroxide

    Back in 2019, Stanford University researchers and colleagues revealed the surprising discovery that hydrogen peroxide – a caustic substance used for disinfecting surfaces and bleaching hair – spontaneously forms in microscopic droplets of ordinary, benign water. Researchers have since aimed ... more

    Light-Controlled Reactions at the Nanoscale

    Controlling strong electromagnetic fields on nanoparticles is the key to triggering targeted molecular reactions on their surfaces. Such control over strong fields is achieved via laser light. Although laser-induced formation and breaking of molecular bonds on nanoparticle surfaces have bee ... more
