The Lawrence Livermore Nationality Laboratory (LLNL) was founded by the University of California in 1952. The US Department of Energy funds LLNL and is managed by Lawrence Livermore Nationality Security, LLC. LLNL's primary purpose is scientific research and investigations pertaining to national security, including weapons of mass destruction, non-destructive testing, nuclear power, all forms of energy including wind, solar and the like. LLNL is an expert on x-ray and the development of new techniques to evaluate radiation and a host of new imaging devices for testing devices.
Mars' largest moon, Phobos, has captured public imagination and been shrouded in mystery for decades. But numerical simulations recently conducted at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have shed some light on the ...
Determining the chemical abundance pattern left by the earliest stars in the universe is no easy feat. A Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientist is helping to do just that.
Cell phones and Apple watches could last a little longer due to a new method to create copper nanowires.
Using ever more energetic lasers, Lawrence Livermore researchers have produced a record high number of electron-positron pairs, opening exciting opportunities to study extreme astrophysical processes, such as black holes ...
Lawrence Livermore scientists have come up with a new theory that may identify why dark matter has evaded direct detection in Earth-based experiments.
Scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have found that, contrary to popular belief, the Earth is not comprised of the same material found in primitive meteorites (also known as chondrites).
