Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory


Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has a mission of strengthening the United States’ security through development and application of world-class science and technology to:

Enhance the nation’s defense;

Reduce the global threat from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction;

And respond with vision, quality, integrity and technical excellence to scientific issues of national importance.
