  • The Ion Beam Materials Laboratory at NNSA’s Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) works to characterize and modify surfaces through the use of ion beams. Its purpose is to advance materials science for the safety and security of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile—and that research also...
  • Research work performed at NNSA’s national laboratories generates fervor among scientists worldwide because it produces new technologies that are already proven and applied within the nuclear weapons program. By publishing their research findings, NNSA’s scientists encourage what can...
  • In a recent paper published in Nature Communications, NNSA researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) recently demonstrated ways to accelerate materials science. Why is this innovation so noteworthy to NNSA’s mission, as well as other applications? A chef inventing a new dish...
  • NNSA’s efforts to prevent, counter, and respond to the dangers of nuclear proliferation and terrorism are vital to U.S. national security. Terrorist attacks in the past year in Europe and the United States have highlighted the evolving and unpredictable nature of the threat. Science,...
  • The University of Kansas has entered into a new research collaboration that will position faculty and students to work with industry on technologies that enhance national security.  A master collaboration agreement was signed Feb. 16 between KU and Honeywell Federal Manufacturing &...
  • The threat of potential earth impacts from space objects has been on scientists’ and policymakers’ radar for decades. Now, technologies enabled and driven by the nuclear security enterprise are making improvements to the analysis of possible solutions. New research at NNSA’s Lawrence Livermore...
  • One of the gravest threats the world faces is the possibility that terrorists will acquire nuclear weapons or the necessary materials to construct a weapon. Part of the work of NNSA’s Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation and the national laboratories is to support investigations into the...
  • The micro-architectured, ultra-lightweight supercapacitor material is able to retain energy on par with those made with electrodes 10 to 100 times thinner. For the first time ever, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and UC Santa Cruz have successfully 3D-printed supercapacitors...
