Using computer modeling and a novel molecule design technique, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have replaced one “arm” of an explosive molecule to help unravel the first steps in the detonation process.
The Grand Unified File Index (GUFI) is designed using a new, heirarchical approach to storing file metadata, allowing rapid parallel searches across many internal databases.
“Tony’s background has given him firsthand experience building effective partnerships between industry and external sponsors, and program and line organizations—skills that will serve him well as director of the Feynman Center.” - Nancy Jo Nicholas, principal associate director for Global Security Antonio “Tony” Redondo to lead Feynman Center for Innovation Los Alamos, N.M., Feb. 22, [...]
LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Feb. 14, 2018—Nanotechnology researchers studying small bundles of carbon nanotubes have discovered an optical signature showing excitons bound to a single nanotube are accompanied by excitons tunneling across closely interacting nanotubes. That quantum tunneling action could impact energy distribution in carbon nanotube networks, with implications for light-emitting films and light harvesting applications. [...]
Insights into the body’s 24-hour clock are developing LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Jan. 31, 2018—Using a simple analytical framework for random events within a predictable system, computational biologists have found a new way to accurately model certain forms of gene expression, including the body’s 24-hour internal clock. This new approach of applying a piecewise deterministic Markov [...]
LANS funding supports education, economic development and charitable giving in Northern New Mexico LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Jan. 30, 2018—Students, small businesses and other community members and groups in Northern New Mexico will benefit this year from a recent, nearly $1.9 million grant from Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS), which is the managing and operating [...]
Investments in Northern New Mexico help create jobs, boost revenue LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Jan 29, 2018—A record nine Northern New Mexico Native American–owned and –operated businesses have received a total of more than $50,000 in the 2018 grants from the Native American Venture Acceleration Fund. The fund was created by Los Alamos National Laboratory operator [...]
Angel E. Garcia and Laura Smilowitz of Los Alamos National Laboratory have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
Since 1978 Los Alamos has won more than 145 of the prestigious R&D 100 Awards.
The honor is an international recognition of key technologies that originally developed at Los Alamos in the 1980s and 1990s.
