Science and Technology Highlights

The greenland ice sheet
// S&T Highlights
Wthin the last 1.1 million years, Greenland had thriving vegetation and ecosystems.
The Paris-Edinburgh-type press with specialized thermoelectric cell assembly
// S&T Highlights
Researchers have shown how applying pressure to a specific thermoelectric material, TiNiSn, increases its efficiency and leads to a structural phase transition.
Four researchers head shots, with four x-ray images
// S&T Highlights
New work by computer scientists at Livermore and IBM Research on deep learning models to accurately diagnose diseases from x-ray images won the Best Paper award for Computer-Aided Diagnosis at the SPIE Medical Imaging Conference.
Experimental set-up with laser, microstructure, and data plot
// S&T Highlights
Livermore scientists have achieved a near 100 percent increase in the amount of antimatter created in the laboratory.
 "Permitting Carbon Capture & Storage Projects in California" report cover
// S&T Highlights
According to a Livermore report, California will need to both intensify efforts in emission reduction measures and technologies that are already underway and deploy technologies that dramatically reduce existing emissions.
Visualization of a hydrodynamic phenomenon
// S&T Highlights
Lawrence Livermore will be among the world’s first high-performance computing (HPC) centers to deploy an exascale-class system.
Space Science Institute logo over image of four people at work
// S&T Highlights
The Laboratory has launched the new Space Science Institute, intended to boost cross-discipline collaboration and discovery.
a HYDRA simulation of an inertial confinement fusion implosion
// S&T Highlights
Researchers gain new insights into why small eviations from perfect spherical symmetry can lead to significant distortions of the implosion and ultimately degrade inertial confinement (ICF) fusion performance.
U.S. at night with lit areas visible
// S&T Highlights
For nearly half a century, the Laboratory has created unique one-page charts that diagram the nation’s energy use and consumption in an easy-to-understand format.
Students walking into building at Las Positas College
// S&T Highlights
Now in its 11th year, the Lawrence Livermore–Las Positas College Science and Engineering Seminar Series provides Livermore scientists and engineers a forum to share their research with students, faculty, and the Tri-Valley community.
