LVOC Facilities

LVOC’s onsite facilities house resources and equipment to accelerate scientific discovery and application.

Scientist with Device

Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory

LLNL develops some of the world’s most sophisticated manufacturing equipment and materials, all housed at the Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory (AML). Laboratory, industry, and academic partners can work together inside the AML to address manufacturing challenges across a range of commercial and government projects.

El Capitan super computer

Livermore Computing Center

First-class computational infrastructure supports vital energy, environmental, and national security research. LVOC partnerships can provide access to extraordinary simulation and modeling capabilities, enabling new frontiers of discovery and innovation.

Discovery Center

Open to all ages, the Discovery Center is a pillar of LVOC’s educational outreach initiatives by providing visitors with exciting ways to learn about the Laboratory’s legacy of innovation. A mini-museum filled with displays, games, and exhibits, the Discovery Center also has ancillary educational classrooms and outdoor space for gatherings.

Proposed Facilities

New investments in LVOC's world-class facilities are critical to the success of our strategic planning.

Integrative Bio Resilience Laboratory

The Integrative Bio Resilience Laboratory (IBRL) will bring bioscience, biotechnology, bioengineering, and computing staff together in an integrated work environment on the LVOC campus. Research will focus on accelerated and accurate assessment, detection, and countermeasure development to mitigate the effects of emerging threats.

Prototyping Enclave

The LLNL Prototyping Enclave will be a hub for demonstrating critical climate technologies and developing the workforce essential to build critical climate infrastructure. LVOC’s ability to host academia, national laboratories, government, industry, and the private sector in the Prototyping Enclave helps overcome barriers in the rapid scale-up of great ideas.

High Energy Density and Laser Science Facility

Planning is underway for a new High Energy Density (HED) and Laser Science facility at LVOC in the early 2030s. This hands-on facility will open new frontiers of HED science, build new partnerships, and attract premier talent. LVOC’s open environment promotes risk-taking and innovation for the facility’s mission-driven work.
