Some 90 exploratory research projects at Los Alamos National Laboratory had at least a few moments in the spotlight this week during two days of poster sessions and reviews.
Bob Kraus, the deputy director of the Laboratory Research and Development Program, oversees these relatively smaller research projects that are a reason many scientists and experimenters come to work at Los Alamos.
Under review during the “ER Poster Dayz” were the first year projects, expected to be off the ground by now and with something to show.
A quick browse through the two rooms of posters revealed a complex variety of examples.
Several proposed making use the laboratory’s new, fastest-in-the-world Roadrunner high performance computer, which will be available during the first months for unclassified projects.
Salman Habib was the principal investigator for a project on “The Roadrunner Universe.”
Another project supported Bette Korber’s Nobel-Prize-worthy quest for an HIV vaccine.
Alexander Friedland continues the laboratory’s tradition of neutrino research with a project, “Probing physics beyond the Standard Model with Supernovae.”
And Sanjay Reddy has an analytic plan to pry into the densest state of matter in the universe inside a neutron star.
