Through the DOE Office of Science, Los Alamos conducts long-term, national-security-inspired, fundamental science.

These often high-risk and high-payoff efforts enable remarkable discoveries and tools that transform our understanding of energy and matter and advance the national, economic, and energy security of the United States.

Our science programs support DOE with a diverse research portfolio

  • Advance science needed for revolutionary energy breakthroughs
  • Seeks to unravel nature’s deepest mysteries
  • Provides researchers opportunity to use most advanced, large-scale tools of modern science

Bolstering an inventive, innovative workforce

These programs further help Los Alamos National Laboratory attract, retain, and develop an inventive and innovative workforce connected closely with the best researchers and facilities in the world.

Most rigorous standards

To validate the quality, relevance, and performance of our work, the Office of Science sets the most rigorous standards of competition, peer review, and project management.

LANL research spans all six Office of Science Programs
