Cai wins 2023 Gopal K. Shenoy Excellence in Beamline Science Award

Zhonghou Cai is the 2023 recipient of the Gopal K. Shenoy Excellence in Beamline Science Award. The annual award recognizes active beamline scientists at the Advanced Photon Source for significant contributions to research or instrumentation and support of the beamline user community.

Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source prepares for its renewal

The Advanced Photon Source is about to undergo a comprehensive upgrade, one that will require a one-year pause in operations. When the APS returns to operation in 2024, its brighter X-ray beams will lead to new breakthroughs in many different areas for decades to come.

Bright lights, big data: how Argonne is bringing supercomputing and X-rays together for scientific breakthroughs

Argonne’s newest supercomputer, Polaris, is up and running, and scientists using the Advanced Photon Source are already seeing faster data analysis. While the combination is paying dividends now, it points toward an upgraded APS and an even better supercomputer called Aurora.

Aurora and the upgraded Advanced Photon Source to power discovery at Argonne

Argonne is creating a supermerger between its new Aurora supercomputer and upgraded Advanced Photon Source. The combined data collection and computing power will enable ultrafast data analysis, advance discovery time and unlock new science.

Powered by artificial intelligence, Argonne technology eyes bird activity at solar facilities

The World Health Organization says monkeypox is a global health emergency. Scientists use ultrabright X-ray beams and diffraction imagery to understand how poxviruses behave. This can accelerate development of critical vaccines and treatments for monkeypox and other poxviruses.
