// S&T Highlights
LLNL researchers described the results of effort to develop a modeling capability “reliable enough to guide NIF experiments to ignition” in a featured Physics of Plasmas.
Six scientist portraits
// Recognition
Six Lawrence Livermore scientists have been selected as 2019 fellows of the American Physical Society (APS).
Scanning electron microscopy image of 3D-printed lattice
// S&T Highlights
Livermore researchers have designed a new class of 3D-printed lattice structures that combine light weight and high stiffness, despite breaking a rule previously thought to be required to exhibit such properties.

Multi-institutional group of researchers examines single digit nanopores.
Earth from space
// S&T Highlights
By comparing observations to large ensembles of climate model simulations, scientists can now better isolate when human-caused climate change was first identifiable in observations.
