Complementary Capabilities

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's diverse capabilities are represented by technical networks, which serve as "internal professional societies" and networks to facilitate communications, identification of key technical resources, and more effective performance of project tasks. The Technical Networks are formed around disciplines or application areas that are key to our research businesses. At PNNL, 16 networks support the coordination of the staff's expertise and the focus of our existing and new technology solutions. The Sensors & Electronics Technical Network is one of these 16 technical networks. Technical Networks with PNNL websites are linked below.

  • Analytical and Physical Chemistry
  • Biosciences and Biotechnology
  • Computational Science and Engineering
  • Computer Science and Information Technology
  • Design and Manufacturing Engineering
  • Earth Systems Science
  • Energy Technology and Management
  • Human Health and Safety
  • Materials Sciences and Technology
  • Nuclear Science and Engineering
  • Policy and Management Sciences
  • Sensors and Electronics (this website)
  • Separations and Conversions
  • Statistics

On a broader scale, the Technical Networks are being implemented Battelle-wide in the private Battelle laboratory in Columbus, Ohio and in the other National Laboratories where Battelle Memorial Institute leads or shares laboratory management responsibilities under contract with the US Department of Energy. The technical networks nurture communication and encourage collaboration across organizational and geographic boundaries, facilitating the sharing of information on the deployment of state-of-the-art tools, methods, and equipment.

Technical networks also facilitate the alignment of Battelle-wide capabilities with the business strategies of our organizations and their businesses. In addition, technical networks provide a holistic approach to stewardship for Battelle's diverse intellectual assets. These approaches enable greater advancement of our collective science and technology capabilities and the supporting infrastructure. For affiliated Department of Energy laboratories, these approaches also facilitate coordination of programmatic directions and research and development.

The collective set of technical networks involves staff across five Battelle-managed sites: Battelle Columbus Laboratory (Columbus, Ohio), Brookhaven National Laboratory (Islip, New York), National Renewable Energy Laboratory (Golden, Colorado), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Oak Ridge, Tennessee), and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (Richland, Washington).
