The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) develops science and technology solutions for the world by bringing together multidisciplinary teams of researchers, and creating world-class tools for scientific discovery. It was founded in 1931 by UC Berkeley physicist and Nobel Prize laureate Ernest Orlando Lawrence and is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its 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.
