Los Alamos National Laboratory

Delivering science and technology to protect our nation and promote world stability

Our Customers

The Lab's mission is to develop and apply science and technology to ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the U.S. nuclear deterrent; reduce global threats; and solve other emerging national security and energy challenges.

Los Alamos National Laboratory is one of three laboratories owned by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). As of 2012, about 65% of our work is done for NNSA programs to care for America’s nuclear weapons stockpile and others that seek to control the spread of nuclear weapons and materials around the world.

The Laboratory does additional work for the Department of Energy Office of Science, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the intelligence community, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and others.

We have cooperative research agreements with a number of corporations both large and small, including Chevron, Proctor and Gamble, Intel, IBM, and General Electric.

Our scientists regularly collaborate with laboratories and universities worldwide.
