Sandia Labs FY21 LDRD Annual Report
FY21 ANNUAL REPORT
2021 Federal Laboratory Consortium Mid-Continent Regional Awards Sandia won three 2021 Federal Laboratory Consortium Mid-Continent Regional awards, two with roots in LDRD.
Excellence in Technology Transfer Award
MIRaGE, a futuristic design tool for metamaterials. This research, rooted in a metamaterials science and technology Grand Challenge LDRD project, designs a metamaterial with comparable properties using scientific knowledge developed from molecular spectroscopy on how the symmetry of a natural molecule affects its optical behavior and properties.
