When U.S. Marine Corps veteran Rogelio “Roger” Anaya is not at his job at Los Alamos National Laboratory as the team leader for 13 software developers, there’s a good chance you can find him at the Veterans of Foreign Wars John D. Gamble Post 8874 where he serves as commander.

Anaya was born in Sahuayo, Michoacan in Mexico and came to the United States when he was eight years old.

LANL News:

The detonation of carbon-rich high explosives yields solid carbon as a major constituent of the product mixture, and depending on the thermodynamic conditions behind the shock front, a variety of carbon allotropes and morphologies may form and evolve.

For the first time in the U.S., time-resolved small-angle x-ray scattering (TRSAXS) is used to observe ultra-fast carbon clustering and graphite and nanodiamond production in the insensitive explosive Plastic Bonded Explosive (PBX) 9502, potentially leading to better computer models of explosive performance.
