APPLIED ELECTROMAGNETICS

Understanding the properties of exotic and mundane materials in very extreme conditions requires reproducing those conditions in the lab and measuring them. Our applied electromagnetics provides powerful answers, covering territory few are exploring.

 

PLASMA PHYSICS ENGINEERING  

New discoveries and tools have reopened inquiry into dense-plasma-focused machines, with possibilities in transportation and national security.

 

RADAR

Bespoke systems for national-security applications.

PULSED POWER

LLNL pulsed-power R&D achieves unparalleled voltages and currents to create extreme environments for national-security applications.

 

OTHER ACTIVE AND PASSIVE SENSING

Simulation and signal measurement through matter are priorities.

 




Some of our current projects we are working on include:


Phoenix

Engineers in the Phoenix project conduct experiments that use explosives to create brief, extremely intense magnetic fields. These fields generate multimillion-atmosphere pressures, used to characterize material responses and reconstruct equations of state for materials of interest to the stockpile-stewardship program.


Mjölnir

LLNL is pursuing a cheaper, better way to evaluate hydrogenous dynamics in national-security applications and similar systems, e.g., engines and fuel injection. Aided by today's high-fidelity computer models and powerful computers, scientists and engineers posit that flash-neutron radiography may be achieved using dense-plasma focused (DPF) machines.


ECSE

ECSE (enhanced capability for subcritical experiments) is a massive, multi-lab, multidisciplinary effort to provide multipulse radiography for stockpile stewardship. LLNL engineers and technicians are devising a unique linear-induction accelerator, operating at unparalleled voltages and currents, to be installed under the Nevada desert.


FXR

Engineering operates, maintains, and improves the Flash X-Ray induction linear accelerator (FXR), producing high-energy x-rays for imaging events critical to the weapons program. The FXR penetrates more than a foot of steel, records ultrahigh-speed motion, and uniquely performs imaging in a contained firing environment.
