A new method to cleaner and more efficient CO2 capture


Separating carbon dioxide from its polluting source, such as the flue gas from a coal-fired power plant, may soon become cleaner and more efficient. A Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researcher has developed a screening method that would use ionic liquids - a special type of molten salt ...


New research may help address radionuclide contamination at DOE sites


Five years from now, Lab scientists will be able to better determine how, when and why plutonium moves in soil and groundwater. The way to predict how plutonium is transported in groundwater away from a site is by looking at the dominant geochemical processes that control plutonium's (Pu) ...


Water acts as catalyst in explosives


The most abundant material on Earth exhibits some unusual chemical properties when placed under extreme conditions. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists have shown that water, in hot dense environments, plays an unexpected role in catalyzing complex explosive reactions. A catalyst ...

World's largest laser gears up for ignition experiments


Construction of the National Ignition Facility (NIF), the world's largest and highest-energy laser system, was essentially completed on Feb. 26, when technicians at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), where the laser is located, fired the first full system shot to the center of the NIF ...


LLNL and Chevron sign fuel catalysis agreement


Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has signed a research agreement with Chevron to develop the next generation of catalysts for production of clean, more efficient fuels from crude oil. The research will focus on how catalytically active surfaces form and change on contact with feed molecules ...


Explosives go 'green'


Certain explosives may soon get a little greener and a little more precise. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers added unique green solvents (ionic liquids) to an explosive called TATB (1,3,5-triamino-2,4,6-trinitrobenzene) and improved the crystal quality and chemical purity ...


Scientists determine strength of 'liquid smoke'


Researchers have created a 3D image of a material referred to as "liquid smoke." Aerogel, also known as liquid smoke or "San Francisco fog," is an open-cell polymer with pores smaller than 50 nanometers in diameter. For the first time, Lawrence Livermore and Lawrence Berkeley scientists have ...


LLNL teams with Quantum Fuel Systems to accelerate development of hydrogen storage technologies


Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is working with Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies on a next-generation manufacturing technique for hydrogen storage vessels. As part of a $5.6 million three-year contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, Livermore researchers will demonstrate a unique ...

LLNL researchers create tool to monitor nuclear reactors


International inspectors may have a new tool in the form of an antineutrino detector, that could help them peer inside a working nuclear reactor. A Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory-Sandia National Laboratories' team recently demonstrated that the operational status and thermal power of ...

Explosives at the microscopic scale produce shocking results


U.S. troops blew up enemy bridges with explosives in World War II to slow the advance of supplies or enemy forces. In modern times, patrollers use explosives at ski resorts to purposely create avalanches so the runs are safer when skiers arrive. Other than creating the desired effect (a destroyed ...
