Diagram of “brain-on-a-chip” device
// S&T Highlights
LLNL researchers have developed a way to computationally model the activity and structures of neuronal communities as they grow and mature on the device over time.
Ventilator
// S&T Highlights
Following weeks of prototyping, Livermore is partnering with private industry to mass-produce a simple mechanical ventilator developed for COVID-19 patients that has been authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Two scientists
// S&T Highlights
Livermore researchers are working with other Department of Energy national labs on technologies to improve the speed and accuracy of tests for COVID-19.
Artist’s rendition of cone-shaped nanostructures
// S&T Highlights
Lawrence Livermore scientists have discovered a new method to add an antireflective metasurface (ARMS) layer on laser optics glass that’s so durable, it can survive getting “smooshed.”
