Laser hitting 3D-printed object
// S&T Highlights
LLNL researchers have combined synchrotron X-ray diffraction with computer modeling to better understand the link between residual stresses and the mechanical properties of 3D-printed 316L stainless steel.
Images of nanoscale material features with penny
// S&T Highlights
Researchers have developed a breakthrough in nanoscale 3D printing, developing a scalable method of nanofabrication up to 1,000 times faster than any previous method.
Six scientist portraits

Six Lawrence Livermore scientists have been selected as 2019 fellows of the American Physical Society (APS).
Scientist teaching class
// S&T Highlights
Livermore 's (LLNL) Space Science and Security Program focuses on nascent security challenges, novel scientific discoveries, and new technology development opportunities.
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.
