Technical Reports

The Los Alamos Library has taken a major initiative, called the Library Without Walls project, to scan all Los Alamos technical reports into digital documents in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. One major on-line resource is the Los Alamos Library Catalog. There is a web page describing the Technical Report Resources available and a page for non-LANL customers on How to Obtain an Unclassified Technical Reports, either in digital or paper format. There is also a page listing other recent Los Alamos publications in addition to its technical reports.

The following pages organize reports based on subject matter related to Los Alamos history and nuclear weapons. When an online version of the document is available at Los Alamos, a link to it is given by the [LANL] tag. In some cases, a local copy has been cached for easier access under the (local) tag.

Manhattan Project and Los Alamos History
Trinity Atomic Test, 1945
Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Nuclear Criticality Experiments, Accidents, and Safety
Thermonuclear Weapons

Technical Report Title Lists

The Los Alamos Library Catalog has recently added the capability to search for Los Alamos technical reports based on the report number.
