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.

Nanowire arrays could improve solar cells

Transparent electrodes are a critical component of solar cells and electronic displays. To collect electricity in a solar cell or inject electricity for a display, you need a conductive contact, like a metal, but you also ...

Study reveals new structure of gold at extremes

Gold is an extremely important material for high-pressure experiments and is considered the "gold standard" for calculating pressure in static diamond anvil cell experiments. When compressed slowly at room temperature (on ...

Did comet impacts jump-start life on Earth?

Comets screaming through the atmosphere of early Earth at tens of thousands of miles per hour likely contained measurable amounts of protein-forming amino acids. Upon impact, these amino acids self-assembled into significantly ...

Turning the switch on biofuels

Plant cell walls contain a renewable, nearly limitless supply of sugar that can be used in the production of chemicals and biofuels. However, retrieving these sugars isn't all that easy.

Making metal with the lightness of air

Gold, silver and copper are heavy metals, but LLNL scientists can now make them nearly as light as air—in a form so tiny it can ride on a mosquito's back.
