Fused siica metasurface
// S&T Highlights
A Livermore team has developed a Metasurface Laser Printing (MSLP) process that can produce adjustable, nanoscale (billionth of a meter) surface features with patterning that can be locally controlled and spatially modifiable across meter-sized substrates.
Supercomputer with mathematical simulations
// S&T Highlights
A Livermore team searched for 1 quadrillion “triangles”—relationships such as three-way connections between friends of friends on a social network—using 1 million processors on LLNL’s IBM BlueGene/Q Sequoia supercomputer.
Artist's comnception of cation adsorption
// S&T Highlights
Livermore scientists study ion size and shape's role in energy storage and water desalination technologies.
Two scientists in lab
// S&T Highlights
A cooperative research center that aims to develop vaccines for chlamydia has been established by the National Institutes of Health at Lawrence Livermore.
Asteroid simulation
// S&T Highlights
An interagency team of researchers led by Lawrence Livermore has completed the first ever in-depth investigation into how an asteroid would respond to a nuclear deflection attempt.
Journal cover with image of wind turbines
// Journal Covers
LLNL atmospheric researchers co-authored three publications describing the DOE’s Wind Forecast Improvement Project (WFIP2) and the Mesoscale to Microscale Coupling (MMC) project. WFIP2 is highlighted on the front cover of the September issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
Astronaut next to American flag and rover on surface of moon
// S&T Highlights
A team of Lawrence Livermore scientists has challenged the long-standing theory that the moon experienced a period of intense meteorite bombardment about 3.8 billion years ago.
Engineer with diffraction gratings
// S&T Highlights
A team has designed a new generation of compressor gratings that could boost the performance of the world’s ultrafast high-power laser systems by as much as 20 percent.
2019 S&T Excellence in Publication Awards
// Director's Awards

Nine staff project teams, four postdocs, and four students have received 2019 S&T Excellence in Publication Awards for their exceptional endeavors in science and technology.

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.
