Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 14 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
For nearly 70 years, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has applied science and technology to make the world a safer place. Livermore is the “new ideas” laboratory, and we continue to aspire to intellectual leadership, originality, and audacity–especially in the area of high performance computing. LLNL is leveraging the accelerating pace of work in artificial intelligence and data science for national security challenges such as nuclear security, countering the spread of weapons of mass destruction and protecting critical infrastructure, as well as for fusion energy research and precision medicine for cancer, traumatic brain injury and COVID-19.
As the senior laboratory in the DOE system, Los Alamos National Laboratory executes work in all of DOE’s missions: national security, science, energy, and environmental management. Our contributions are part of what makes DOE a science, technology, and engineering powerhouse for the nation. In addition, LANL performs work for the Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community (IC), and Department of Homeland Security (DHS), among others. As a result, this strategy reflects U.S. priorities spanning nuclear security, intelligence, defense, emergency response, nonproliferation, counterterrorism, energy security, emerging threats, and environmental management.
The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory that produces technological solutions to America’s energy challenges. For more than 100 years, the Laboratory has advanced technology to provide clean, reliable, and affordable energy to the American people.
Supercomputing provides the foundation of NETL’s research efforts on behalf of DOE, and NETL maintains supercomputing capabilities to effectively support its research to meet DOE’s Fossil Energy goals. Supercomputing allows NETL researchers to simulate phenomena that are difficult or impossible to otherwise measure and observe.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory is the largest US Department of Energy science and energy laboratory, conducting basic and applied research to deliver transformative solutions to compelling problems in energy and security. ORNL’s diverse capabilities span a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines, enabling the Laboratory to explore fundamental science challenges and to carry out the research needed to accelerate the delivery of solutions to the marketplace.
