Los Alamos National Laboratory

Los Alamos National Laboratory Tech Area

Northwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico 1943 – Present

In 1943, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) was established as site Y of the Manhattan Project. At its peak two years later in 1945, more than 5,000 scientists, engineers, technicians, metallurgists, and their families lived on the site. Under the leadership of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the lab successfully weaponized the atom just 27 months after its establishment. On July 16, 1945, the world’s first atomic bomb was detonated at the Trinity Site in Alamogordo, New Mexico—about 200 miles south of Los Alamos. 

Today, LANL has a heightened focus on worker safety and security awareness while maintaining its rich variety of research programs in national security, nuclear nonproliferation and border security, energy and infrastructure security, and countermeasures to nuclear and biological terrorist threats. The lab continues to boast over 75 years of scientific innovation.
