Science and Technology Highlights

Chemical formulae and structures
// S&T Highlights
A research team has created machine learning models that can predict molecules’ crystalline properties from their chemical structures alone, such as molecular density.
Nuclear weapon blast simulation
// S&T Highlights
A Livermore team has taken a closer look at how nuclear weapon blasts close to the Earth’s surface create complications in their effects and apparent yields.
Equipment in the Jupiter laser
// S&T Highlights
Researchers describe how a laser-plasma system can be tuned to produce large and measurable changes in the group velocity of light.
Lab equipment with laser
// S&T Highlights
Researchers have developed a light-activated switch that, if fully deployed, could reduce carbon emissions by more than 10 percent.
