Los Alamos Science No. 3, Summer/Fall 1981: Accident Simulation wi...

By: John C. Vigil and Richard J. Pryor

Description: This volume, produced shortly after the accident at the Three Mile Island nuclear reactor, presents a detailed analysis of the accident by Los Alamos researchers as well as discussions of reactor safety for both traditional light water reactors as well as fast breeder reactors. LANL expertise in reactor-safety analysis and multiphase fluid-flow simulation is amply demonstrated through tutorial-like presentations.

Los Alamos Science No. 14, Fall 1986: Photoconductivity and Picose...

By: Robert B. Hammond

Description: Natural heat engines were the passion of the late John Wheatley, one of the greatest low-temperature physicists of the 20th century. Natural engines have no moving parts, making them ideal for applications in space. John Wheatley loved them because they could be fully understood using classical thermodynamics. In a roundtable, his colleagues bring to life Wheatley's unique style of work and dedication. Other topics in this volume include the application of p...

By: Siegfried S. Hecker

Description: In 1993, LANL's 50th anniversary, the Cold War was over, and the Laboratory was in the midst of changing its identity. This volume captures the mood of the times through a candid roundtable among LANL scientists and former Director Harold Agnew. Hans Bethe and Edward Teller offer separate visions of the Laboratory's future, and feature stories examine the new ""stewardship"" of the nuclear weapons stockpile in the absence of nuclear testing, the threat of nu...

Los Alamos Science No. 26, 2000: Plutonium and Health-How Great Is...

By: George L. Voelz

Description: Plutonium is arguably the strangest element in the periodic table and the most difficult to handle in the laboratory. While its nuclear fission properties were correctly predicted well before it was first produced at the Berkeley cyclotron, its chemical and condensed matter properties still defy understanding, largely due to the anomalous behavior of the 5f electrons. Nevertheless, it plays a prominent role in nuclear weapons and nuclear energy production. F...

Los Alamos Science No. 30, 2006: Cover

By: Necia Grant Cooper

Description: Stretching out along the mesa from west to east is the half-mile long linear accelerator, the heart of LANSCE. This high-intensity proton accelerator powers LANSCE's many experimental facilities including the Lujan Neutron Scattering Center and the Weapons Neutron Research (WNR) Facility. In the last five years, LANSCE's contributions to national security have become increasingly important, including proton radiography movies of dynamic events, nuclear data ...

By: Marilyn E. Hawley, Geoffrey W. Brown, Michele Y. Simmons, Robert G. Clark

Description: A single atom or photon can exist in a superposition of two different states, just as a sound wave can be composed of different frequencies. At LANL's Quantum Institute, the wave-particle duality of individual quanta is being exploited to develop new information technologies including quantum cryptography, quantum computing, and quantum entanglement and teleportation. Research at the Quantum Institute also encompasses studies of Bose Einstein condensates, st...

Los Alamos Science No. 25, 1997: The Evidence for Oscillations

By: Bill Louis, Vern Sandberg, Gerry Garvey, Hywel White, Geoffrey Mills, Rex Tayloe

Description: Starting with the Nobel-prize winning discovery of the neutrino in 1956 by Fred Reines and Clyde Cowan, Jr., LANL has made numerous contributions to neutrino physics and astrophysics. This volume puts these contributions in perspective while exploring the relationship between neutrino oscillation and non-zero neutrino masses. Articles on the Los Alamos LSND neutrino oscillation experiment, the search for the missing solar neutrinos at SNO, neutrinos in super...
