Laboratory productivity can be measured in a number of ways, including number of peerreviewed journal articles published each year, and through the various awards earned by laboratory scientists. Several of the laboratories’ key achievements from recent years are highlighted below.
Los Alamos National Laboratory
• LANL had 2,079 peer-reviewed publications, the highest since 2006.
• The laboratory’s number of post-doctoral candidates was at an all-time high.
• LANL won three R&D 100 Awards.1
• The E.O. Lawrence Award, which recognizes exceptional contributions in R&D that support the DOE and its missions, was awarded to two LANL scientists.2
