The Laboratory in the News

Seismic Science and Nonproliferation
Commentary by William H. Goldstein

Sleuthing Seismic Signals
Supercomputer simulations improve the accuracy of models used to distinguish nuclear explosions from earthquakes and pinpoint their locations.

Wind and the Grid
The Laboratory lends technical expertise to government and industry to more effectively integrate wind energy into the nation’s electrical infrastructure.

Searching for Tiny Signals from Dark Matter
Powerful amplifiers may for the first time allow researchers to detect axions, hypothesized particles that may constitute “dark matter.”

A Better Method for Self-Decontamination
A prototype decontamination system could one day allow military personnel and civilians to better treat themselves for exposure to toxic chemicals.
