Tour: LLNL: NIF + Engineered Materials - SOLD OUT
Jun 13

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) houses the world's most powerful laser system, in a building larger than three football fields. The NIF focuses on 192 lasers in billionth-of-a-second pulses to achieve star conditions: 100 million degrees at a pressure 100 billion times earth's atmosphere. We won't witness a test, but you'll be awed by its "cold-state" splendor.

Over the past 6 years, LLNL has been investing in a state-of- the-art advanced manufacturing and materials laboratory known as the Center for Engineered Materials and Manufacturing. In this lab, scientists and engineers have been developing new additive manufacturing techniques with unique capabilities such as multi-material as well as micro-/nano- scale printing. Additionally, they are using these newly developed tools to explore topics ranging from designer materials with unnatural properties (e.g. negative thermal expansion) to smart materials and advanced light-weight armor. Participants will be shown the custom built state-of- the-art equipment and get to handle prototype printed materials showcasing the unique system capabilities.

All tour participants must wear long pants and close toed shoes due to the laboratory environment. LLNL-MI-719401
