We develop and apply a broad set of capabilities in materials science and experimental physics to programs and problems of national importance. The success of our science requires world-class research and processing facilities, including our LANL-based national user facilities: the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT), and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL).
We cultivate a responsive, high-performance staff that conducts innovative, cross-disciplinary R&D that produces breakthrough solutions to the most pressing national security challenges.
