The Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) was established in 1943 is a Department of Energy funded lab managed by Los Alamos National Security LLC. The primary purposes of LANL are involve national security, outer space, renewable energy, medicine, technology and nanotechnology/supercomputing. LANL conducts testing of materials and employs material engineers, chemists, physicists, biologists and other professionals. LANL publishes its findings and research on-line and news releases. LANL has an operating budget of over $2.2 billion.
