Latest Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Stories
Knowledge Foundation and Oak Ridge National Laboratory brings the 2nd Biosurveillance Symposium and Biodetection Technologies 2013 to Alexandria, VA on June 17 - 19, 2013. Boston,
Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and UC Berkeley and have discovered new materials to capture methane, the second highest concentration greenhouse gas emitted into the atmosphere.
The US Navy believes the time to embrace the future is now and is looking to mount a weaponized laser on one of their ships. The laser weapon system, or LaWS, has been in testing for several years and now the pentagon believes it can effectively be used to bring down slow-flying drones and injure nearby ships.
The first supercomputer to complete one quadrillion calculations per second has been officially decommissioned, going offline Sunday after being operational for the past five years.
Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have successfully demonstrated pulse tailoring, producing a time varying focal spot size known as 'focal zooming' on the world's largest operating krypton fluoride (KrF) gas laser.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have performed record simulations using all 1,572,864 cores of Sequoia, the largest supercomputer in the world. Sequoia, based on IBM BlueGene/Q architecture, is the first machine to exceed one million computational cores. It also is No. 2 on the list of the world's fastest supercomputers, operating at 16.3 petaflops (16.3 quadrillion floating point operations per second). The simulations are...
Human activities are not the primary cause of arsenic found in groundwater in Bangladesh.
Massive Compact Halo Object (MACHO) -- Massive compact halo objects, or MACHOs, are a type of astronomical body proposed as one possible explanation for the presence of dark matter in galactic halos. A MACHO is a small chunk of normal baryonic matter, far smaller than a star, which drifts through interstellar space unassociated with any solar system. Since MACHOs would not emit any light of their own, they would be very hard to detect. Recent work has suggested that MACHOs are not...
