Los alamos national laboratory

(Science: radiobiology) major doe research facility, located in los Alamos, new Mexico, about an hour west of Santa fe. Former home of a frozen-deuterium-fibre z-pinch device, which was dismantled. Home to an active theory division, including the numerical tokamak Grand Challenge (being performed on the CM-5 massively-parallel supercomputer). Also home to former alternative-concepts experimental devices like Scyllac, FRX-a, FRX-B, FRX-C/LSM, ZT40, and the aborted CPRF which was killed in 1991 when it was almost complete (budget cuts). Currently there are some small in-house experiments, including one on electrostatic confinement as a possible fusion device, and/or a compact neutron source. They also do theory and experimental collaboration with other labs worldwide.
