Unique world-class user facilities foster rich research opportunities
Through its technology transfer efforts, Los Alamos National Laboratory can implement user facility agreements that allow its partners and other entities to conduct research at many of its unique facilities.
While our largest user facilities—by number of users—are the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), and the Center for Integrated Nanotechnology (CINT), we have around 30 other Los Alamos facilities that are available to outside users, including scientists and engineers from industry, universities, and government agencies.
Users come to the Laboratory to characterize, study, fabricate, calibrate, test, and evaluate new materials, systems, products and processes.
Serving researchers worldwide
In 2015, Los Alamos National Laboratory hosted more than 1,200 users at CINT, LANSCE, and NHMFL. Users came from across the DOE complex, from international academia, and from industrial companies from 45 states across the U.S.
