LLNL Team Reports Breakthrough in Ultrafast, High-Resolution Nanoscale 3D Printing

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

In the latest issue of Science, a team of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers describe a breakthrough in nanoscale 3D printing, developing a scalable method of nanofabrication up to 1,000 times faster than any previous method has accomplished, without sacrificing resolution, potentially opening the door to cost-effective, largescale 3D nanoprinting.

New lattice designs defy conventional wisdom on metamaterials

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory 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. One of the new structures additionally displays perfectly uniform response to forces in all directions.

World’s largest optical lens shipped to SLAC

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

When the world’s newest telescope starts imaging the Southern sky in 2023, it will take photos using optical assemblies designed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers and built by Lab industrial partners. A key feature of the camera’s optical assemblies for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, under construction in northern Chile, will be its three lenses.

Jupiter shows its true stripes

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

There’s a reason why Jupiter’s stripes are only skin deep. It turns out that the planet’s zonal winds -- the alternating east-west jet streams seen in photographs as colorful stripes -- only descend to 3,000 kilometers in the atmosphere.

‘Quantum Annealer’ Shows Promise in New Study

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

An international team of researchers has developed a new algorithm for solving equations using a type of quantum computer called a “quantum annealer.” The team systematically examined how this method scales when facing increasingly difficult mathematical equations, with promising results.

National Ignition Facility Celebrates 10 Years of Operation

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

In the decade since Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s National Ignition Facility began operations, NIF has routinely heated and compressed matter to some of the most extreme temperatures and pressures ever obtained on Earth – temperatures of 100 million degrees and pressures 100 billion times that of the Earth’s atmosphere. More than 2,700 experiments have helped to ensure the current and future nuclear stockpile is safe, secure and effective; made significant progress toward fusion ignition; and yielded new insights about the stars and the universe while revealing phenomena like the metallization of hydrogen and the interiors of distant planets.

DOE/NNSA, Lab announce partnership with Cray to develop NNSA's first exascale supercomputer

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

The Department of Energy (DOE), National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) today announced the signing of contracts with Cray Inc. to build the NNSA’s first exascale supercomputer, “El Capitan.” When delivered in late 2022, El Capitan will have a peak performance of more than 1.5 exaflops (1.5 quintillion calculations per second), about 10 times faster than LLNL’s current most powerful supercomputer, Sierra. The total contract award is valued at $600 million.
