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.

Finding order in disorder demonstrates a new state of matter

Physicists have identified a new state of matter whose structural order operates by rules more aligned with quantum mechanics than standard thermodynamic theory. In a classical material called artificial spin ice, which in ...

World's finest gold specimen probed with Los Alamos neutrons

Using neutron characterization techniques a team of scientists have peered inside one of the most unique examples of wire gold, understanding for the first time the specimen's structure and possible formation process. The ...

Superconductivity research reveals potential new state of matter

A potential new state of matter is being reported in the journal Nature, with research showing that among superconducting materials in high magnetic fields, the phenomenon of electronic symmetry breaking is common. The ability ...

High Altitude Water Cherenkov observatory tests speed of light

New measurements confirm, to the highest energies yet explored, that the laws of physics hold no matter where you are or how fast you're moving. Observations of record-breaking gamma rays prove the robustness of Lorentz Invariance—a ...

Breaking the supermassive black hole speed limit

A new computer simulation helps explain the existence of puzzling supermassive black holes observed in the early universe. The simulation is based on a computer code used to understand the coupling of radiation and certain ...
