Positively Scintillating Neutral Particles Brighten Scientific Prospects
Laboratory scientists are involved in experiments to detect rare neutral particle interactions and are applying this nuclear know-how to develop advanced tools for nonproliferation efforts.

Plutonium at 150 Years: Going Strong and Aging Gracefully
Studies of accelerated and naturally aged samples continue to show that changes occurring in plutonium pits in the U.S. nuclear stockpile are unlikely to compromise weapon performance for many more decades.

A New Detector for Analyzing NIF Experiments
A neutron diagnostic directly measures reactions occurring inside the fuel capsule during ignition experiments on the National Ignition Facility.

Faster Analysis from Biological Accelerator Mass Spectrometry
A process invented at Livermore for biomedical research becomes easier to use with faster results.



Science & Technology Review is published eight times a year to communicate, to a broad audience, the Laboratory’s scientific and technological accomplishments in support of national security and other enduring national needs. The publication’s goal is to help readers understand these accomplishments and appreciate their value to the individual citizen, the nation, and the world.
