‘Criticality’ Experiments Enhance Nuclear Safety

Livermore researchers conducted the first Livermore-designed “criticality” experiment in 40 years. It was one in a series that aims to help ensure plutonium operations – which are key to assessing the U.S. nuclear stockpile without testing – continue to be conducted safely.

Lawrence Livermore National Lab researchers, along with collaborators at Ames National Laboratory, Georgia Tech University and Oregon State University, have achieved a breakthrough in 3D printing one of the most common forms of marine grade stainless steel – a low-carbon type called 316L – that promises an unparalleled combination of high-strength and high-ductility properties for the ubiquitous alloy.

Lawrence Livermore Plasma Optic Combines Lasers to Form ‘Superbeam’

For 40 years, the Death Star has remained one of science fiction’s most iconic figures. The image of Alderaan’s destruction at the hands of the Death Star’s superlaser is burned into the memory of millions of fans. But it’s long been argued that the technology utilized by the Death Star could never make the jump from sci-fi into reality – scientific theory says that rather than converging and combining their energy, the beams would just pass through one another. That was true – until now. A team of researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have added a plasma – a charged mixture of ions and free electrons -- to the concept and successfully combined several separate lasers into a superbeam.

Carbon Nanotubes Worth Their Salt

Lawrence Livermore scientists, in collaboration with researchers at Northeastern University, have developed carbon nanotube pores that can exclude salt from seawater. The team also found that water permeability in carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with diameters smaller than a nanometer (0.8 nm) exceeds that of wider carbon nanotubes by an order of magnitude.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists have discovered that exposure to environmental levels of triclocarban (TCC), an antibacterial chemical common in personal care products like soaps and lotions as well as in the medical field, can transfer from mother to offspring and interfere with lipid metabolism.
