Autopack is an open-source python tool that enables the automatic labeling of packing motifs for large and chemically diverse datasets of molecular crystals. Autopack takes advantage of geometric descriptors to find useful cross-sections within the crystal structure to elucidate the associated packing motif. Autopack is capable of processing either crystallographic information files (CIFs) or Cambridge Crystal Structure Database (CCDC) reference codes provided in a CSV file. Internally, Autopack will both validate and filter crystal structures that do not satisfy the packing motif labeling criteria (as explained in the associated publication), limiting the number of manual preprocessing steps.

LLNL has developed a method of extending device lifetimes by imprinting into the device a shape that excludes specific vibrational modes, otherwise known as a phononic bandgap. Eliminating these modes prevents one of the primary energy loss pathways in these devices. LLNL’s new method enhances the coherence of superconducting circuits by introducing a phononic bandgap around the system’s operating frequency.

<p>With business applications moving to the cloud from traditional corporate networks, a crucial part of any organization’s cybersecurity is managing the users who can access their computers, networks, software applications and data. LLNL’s One ID technology is a cost-effective way to more easily manage a large organization’s enterprise security.</p>

Join us to hear about innovation in materials for CO2 capture from biogas waste streams. Biogas is an underutilized energy source and LLNL research has the potential to change that. The team's successful results thus far are leading to scale up and field demonstrations for upgrading biogas from agricultural sources to compete in this $24B global market.
