The Adaptive Computing Environment and Simulations (ACES) project provides experts with a toolkit to simulate nuclear fuel enrichment and reveals how the process might be subverted to make materials for nuclear weapons.
Extreme ultraviolet research has resulted in state-of-the-art, multilayer-reflective optics for space exploration, microchips, and more.
Using direct ink write and “jetting” additive manufacturing techniques, researchers have created transparent ceramics with new properties for laser optics and other applications.
The latest generation of Livermore’s workhorse laser physics code promises full integration across research and operations applications.
