Livermore scientists and engineers received three 2021 R&D 100 Awards. R&D World Magazine lauded the Livermore engineering team in cooperation with California-based partner Opcondys, Inc., for developing power grid switches aimed at reducing carbon emissions. Laboratory scientists were also among a multi-institutional team awarded for a field-deployable instrument able to identify and gauge nuclear threats. In the third award, Lawrence Livermore computer scientists collaborating with a team based at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, were recognized for software breakthroughs that manage supercomputing workloads.
Three Livermore physicists were selected as fellows for the American Physical Society (APS). The honorees include Tilo Doeppner and Tammy Ma from the High-Energy-Density Division of the National Ignition Facility and Photon Science Principal Directorate, and Xueqiao Xu from the Physics Division of the Physical and Life Sciences Directorate. Their areas of expertise range from high-energy, laser-matter interactions and inertial fusion science to computational capabilities geared toward magnetic fusion energy experimentation. APS fellowships are awarded after peer nomination and an exceptionally stringent evaluation process.
