NATIONAL LABORATORY

For nearly a decade, the Laboratory, in partnership with its sister Defense Programs laboratories and the Department of Energy (DOE)/National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), has maintained the enduring nuclear stockpile without nuclear testing. National science-based Stockpile Stewardship is the program through which the safety, reliability, and performance of the United States nuclear stockpile is assured. Through Stockpile Stewardship and other programs, LANL develops and applies the best science and technology to meet national security requirements by creating and adapting capabilities to address critical mission needs.

High-performance computing at Los Alamos announces milestone for key/value middleware

High-performance computing at Los Alamos announces milestone for key/value middleware

At Los Alamos, a supercomputer epicenter where 'big data set' really means something, a data middleware project has achieved a milestone for specialized information organization and storage. The Multi-dimensional Hashed Indexed Middleware project at Los Alamos National Laboratory recently achieved 1,782,105,749 key/value inserts per second into a globally-ordered key space on Los Alamos National Laboratory's Moonlight supercomputer.

Nanotube 'glow sticks' transform surface science tool kit

Many physical and chemical processes necessary for biology and chemistry occur at the interface of water and solid surfaces. Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory publishing in Nature Nanotechnology have now shown that semiconducting carbon nanotubes -- light-emitting cylinders of pure carbon -- have the potential to detect and track single molecules in water.
