2023 Director’s Excellence in Publication Awards
// Director's Awards
Nineteen papers covering a wide spectrum of research have received 2023 Director’s Excellence in Publication Awards. This honor acknowledges and rewards outstanding scientific and technical publications by Laboratory staff.
An atomic level view of Li-Mg imide nanoparticle wrapped by a layer of carbon host after hydrogen desorption
// S&T Highlights
LLNL computational scientists worked with experimental collaborators at Lawrence Berkeley and Sandia national laboratories to design metal amide-based composites capable of overcoming key kinetic limitations in their performance as hydrogen storage materials.

Megajoule Neutron Imaging Radiography Experiment team
// S&T Highlights

In early May, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Megajoule Neutron Imaging Radiography Experiment (MJOLNIR) team’s dense plasma focus (DPF) achieved greater than 1012 neutrons in a single deuterium

An atomic-level view of water confined in a small-diameter nanotube.
// S&T Highlights

A new study provides surprising behavior of hydrogen bonding of water confined in carbon nanotubes.

A large portion of Greenland melted about 416,000 years ago — perhaps a bit like the small melt pond shown in this modern Greenland landscape — and became ice-free tundra or a boreal forest.
// S&T Highlights

A large portion of Greenland was an ice-free tundra landscape — perhaps covered by trees and roaming wooly mammoths — in the recent geologic past (about 416,000 years ago), according to a new study in the journal

Understanding the properties of the warm dense matter in planetary cores could help indicate if a planet could support life.
// S&T Highlights

To learn about the properties of materials under changing temperatures and pressures, researchers typically combine laboratory experiments with theoretical models and computer simulations.
