Los Alamos Science No. 7, Winter/Spring 1983: The Agnew Years 1970...

By: Excerpts from Speeches Harold Agnew Between 1966-1977

Description: In 1983 many of the pioneers who helped develop the first fission and thermonuclear bombs were still at LANL and able to relay their first-hand experiences. This volume is filled with their stories and insights into the scientific and technological developments that grew from the nuclear weapons work.

Los Alamos Science No. 3, Summer/Fall 1981: Cover and Table of Con...

By: Peter Carruthers

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. 1, Summer 1980: Don Kerr on Nuclear Safeguards

By: Don Kerr

Description: The premier issue of Los Alamos Science became a collector's item because of the seminal article by Mitchell Feigenbaum on the approach to chaotic behavior in deterministic system? The volume also features a series of articles on nuclear safeguards, an international effort to prevent proliferation by monitoring nuclear materials that began in the 2960's at Los Alamo?

By: Edward P. Mackerrow

Description: This 60th anniversary review of LANL features the Laboratory's three overarching thrusts: nuclear weapons stockpile stewardship--a decade-long effort to develop the scientific base to certify the US stockpile in the absence of nuclear testing; threat reduction--a historic mission that includes assuring nonproliferation of nuclear weapons, reducing the threat of biological and chemical attacks, and insuring homeland security; and finally, strategic investment...

By: Susan Kurien, Mark A. Taylor

Description: Improving predictive capability is an implicit goal in the major missions of Los Alamos National Laboratory: simulating performance of weapons in the stockpile, quantifying uncertainties in those simulations, and developing strategies to mitigate global threats. Success in achieving this goal depends on closely coordinating theory, experiment, and computer simulation.

By: Thomas G. Zocco

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. 27, 2002: Ion-Trap Quantum Computation

By: Michael H. Holzscheiter

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...

By: Phil Goldstone

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 ...
