Science and Technology Highlights

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.
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.
Artist's conception of nanoporin
// S&T Highlights
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.
Large lens with two people in protective suits
// S&T Highlights
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will take photos using optical assemblies designed by Lawrence Livermore researchers.
Artist's conception of nulcear fuel pellets and data
// S&T Highlights
Scientists are going to the microscale to study the diverse characteristics of nuclear fuel pellets that could improve nuclear forensic analysis.
Artist's conception of molecules and water pump
// S&T Highlights
Researchers have developed a technology that can remove nitrate from water selectively.
