Science and engineering for investigating and interpreting the chemical properties, reactivity, synthesis and applications of energetic, optical, nuclear and multifunctional materials in support of our national-security missions.
The Chemical Sciences Division (CSD) conducts R&D at the intersection of chemical and nuclear science in support of LLNL's programmatic missions. CSD personnel provide expertise in organic/inorganic synthetic, analytical, computational, nuclear, environmental radiochemistry, and isotope geochemistry, as well as engineering and physics, to solve problems in stockpile stewardship and other national security programs such as forensics, nonproliferation, and counter-terrorism. CSD has world-class capabilities in energetic and advanced, multifunctional materials creation and characterization, nuclear chemistry and engineering, radiation detection and nuclear measurements, chemical and nuclear forensic science, and environmental radiochemistry, and isotope geochemistry.
