US Department of Energy National Science Bowl



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.




Study forecasts disappearance of conifers due to climate change

Study forecasts disappearance of conifers due to climate change

A new study, led by Los Alamos National Laboratory, suggests that widespread loss of a major forest type, the pine-juniper woodlands of the Southwestern US, could be wiped out by the end of this century due to climate change, and that conifers throughout much of the Northern Hemisphere may be on a similar trajectory.

Nanoscale, multidimensional artificial magnet created

Scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory, in collaboration with a group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Advanced Light Source and with other researchers nationwide, have realized a nanoscale, artificial magnet by arranging an array of magnetic nano-islands along a geometry that is not found in natural magnets. Their paper 'Emergent reduced dimensionality by vertex frustration in artificial spin ice' appears on the journal Nature Physics' website today.
