Science and Technology Highlights

Artist's conception of autonomous vehicles on road
// S&T Highlights
Livermore scientists are using to determine the most efficient strategy for charging and driving electric vehicles used for ride-hailing services.
S230 antibody
// S&T Highlights
Livermore researchers developed a preliminary set of predictive 3D protein structures of the novel coronavirus that is currently spreading globally.
Cover of study
// S&T Highlights
Livermore scientists have identified a robust suite of technologies to help California clear the last hurdle and become carbon neutral – and ultimately carbon negative – by 2045.
Artist's conception of 3D printed electrodes
// S&T Highlights
Scientists have developed a new class of aerogel electrodes with a simultaneous boost in energy and power density.
Simulation of Rayleigh-Taylor hydrodynamic instability
// S&T Highlights
Scientists at the National Ignition Facility have reached a better understanding of the causes of plasma instabilities.
Nanocarbon condensate
// S&T Highlights
An LLNL team has proven that nanocarbon can be synthesized by applying strong shocks to an organic material.
Stars in the constellation Carina
// S&T Highlights
Micrometer-sized silicon carbide stardust grains extracted from the Murchison meteorite formed anywhere from 1.5 million to 3 billion years before the formation of our solar system.
Five scientists work on CubeSat
// S&T Highlights
Livermore’s first in-house designed and fabricated CubeSat went into orbit in December.
Clouds
// S&T Highlights
With better representation of clouds, the latest generation of global climate models predict more warming in response to increasing carbon dioxide than their predecessors.
Three researchers in front of U.S. map and turbine
// S&T Highlights
A trio of Livermore scientists have served as co-authors for three separate papers about projects they’ve worked on to upgrade wind power forecasting for the nation.
