Established in 2013, the Livermore Noble Gas Lab is a state-of-the-art facility for noble gas isotope ratio and abundance measurements.

The laboratory supports cross-disciplinary research in the fields of national security, nuclear forensics, nuclear explosion monitoring, radiochronometry, and Earth and planetary science. The lab has also recently supported projects at the National Ignition Facility and in support of basic science for nuclear engineering. In addition to these applications, innovative research on theoretical and methodological aspects of noble gas chemistry and mass spectrometry are actively pursued in the laboratory.
