  • New research results have potentially identified a fourth type of neutrino, a “sterile neutrino” particle. This particle provides challenges for the Standard Model of particle physics, if found to be a valid result in future experiments. The work, conducted by a multi-institutional team at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) near Chicago, confirms results found in the 1990s in the Los...

  • The viruses that cause Ebola and Zika, daunting diseases that inspire concern at every outbreak, share a strong similarity in how they first infiltrate a host’s cells. Through the computer modeling capabilities of Los Alamos National Laboratory, the molecular calisthenics involved in invading a cell are visually documented, an essential step toward vaccine and therapeutic medicine development. “T...

  • Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and collaborators are uncovering the mystery of how, where and when a glacial feature called a moulin can form on the Greenland Ice Sheet. Moulins, drain-like holes that form in glaciers, funnel meltwater from the ice surface to the ground beneath, and they are the alarmingly efficient conduits that allow surface water to reach deep and drive the ice to...

  • Explosives have an inherent problem - they should be perfectly safe for handling and storage but detonate reliably on demand. Using computer modeling and a novel molecule design technique, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have replaced one “arm” of an explosive molecule to help unravel the first steps in the detonation process and better understand its sensitivity — how easily it begin...

  • Cybercrime rates are on the rise, but what exactly does that mean? Cybercrime is any sort of crime using a computer—simple enough. And now that most people in the United States have a computer or access to one, cybercrime is more common than ever. Los Alamos National Laboratory has been working on cybersecurity techniques, processes and tools to prevent and detect cyberattacks.

  • In a strategy to combat antibiotic resistant bacteria, theoretical biologists at Los Alamos National Laboratory are simulating how some microbes use protein structures to flush out the drugs before they kill the bacteria. At an atom level, the simulations show the efflux pumps in action, giving researchers a new tool for figuring out how to disable the pumps. That would allow some currently powerl...

  • When we imagine sending humans long-term to live on the surface of Mars, the moon, or other planetary bodies in the not-so-distant future, one of the primary questions is: How will we provide the colonists with power? Kilopower is a small nuclear reactor being designed at Los Alamos National Laboratory in conjunction with NASA that it hopes will one day be the answer to that question.

  • Wildland fires play an important role in many ecosystems, yet in the western United States land managers have spent a century excluding it from the landscape. The resulting overgrown forests, along with hot and dry conditions, have changed the nature of fires when they do happen, making them more intense and more destructive. Figuring how best to respond is important for the health of our forests,...

  • Now one of the fastest supercomputers in the United States, the Trinity Supercomputer Phase II project was completed during the summer of 2017, and the computer became fully operational during an unclassified “open science” run. The computer has now transitioned to classified mode. The Trinity supercomputer is designed to provide increased computational capability for the NNSA Nuclear Security ...

  • The merger of two equal mass neutron stars is simulated using the 3-D code SNSPH. As the two stars merge, their outer edge ejects a spiral of neutron-rich material. The radioactivity in this ejected material is the primary power source for the optical and infrared light observed in the kilonova. A single hyper-massive neutron star remains at the center in a wide field of ejecta material. This hype...

  • Brain neuroscientists and computer scientists call this field neuromimetic computing—building computers inspired by how the cerebral cortex of the brain works. Its cortical processes rely on billions of small biological “switches,” called neurons. To learn, they store and process information. Using an approach called neural networks, researchers are developing computers that simulate neurons and...

  • Cloaking urban areas and wildfire zones, tiny smoke particles suspended in the atmosphere have a sizeable effect on our climate. But the exact effect of many of these aerosols-such as how much sunlight they absorb, thus warming Earth, or reflecting back to space and so cooling Earth-is very uncertain. The Center for Aerosol Forensic Experiments is a new capability that we have here at Los Alamos ...
