Argonne and the New York Power Authority are collaborating to determine how the utility’s infrastructure may be affected by extreme weather and other hazards.
Many devices rely on rare earth elements. Disruptions to supplies have consequences. Argonne analyzed potential disruptions with a computer model called Global Critical Materials to forecast rare earth market dynamics.
Argonne scientists are using wastewater-based epidemiology to provide a safe and cost-effective way to measure community spread of COVID-19 and the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Argonne scientists play a central role in coursework on securing nuclear packaging at the University of Nevada, Reno. Graduates of this program help ensure our nation’s safety and security.
ARPA-E’s GEMINA funding will allow Argonne’s nuclear scientists to partner with industry and develop tools for the advanced reactors of tomorrow.
Paul Dickman has been named a Waste Management Symposium Fellow for 2020.
Argonne scientists are working around the clock to analyze the virus to find new treatments and cures, predict how it will propagate through the population, and make sure that our supply chains remain intact.
In the fall of 2019, Moldova needed to identify viable alternative routes and sources of natural gas in the event of a disruption in natural gas supply to the country during the 2019-2020 winter. Through the U.S. Department of Energy-led Partnership for Transatlantic Energy Cooperation (P-TEC), experts from Argonne and the U.S. Government provided assistance to Moldova in developing a plan to prepare and respond to the potential supply disruptions.
Severe accident research at Argonne Lab helped the nuclear power industry ensure safety while avoiding $1 billion in unnecessary costs in the wake of the Fukushima disaster.
Argonne scientists won a 2019 R&D 100 award for collaborating with Kairos Power to create software that simulates entire nuclear power plants.
Argonne scientists are combining one-of-a-kind x-ray experiments with novel computer simulations to help engineers at aerospace and defense companies save time and money.
In a new study, scientists have developed a new type of semiconductor neutron detector that boosts detection rates by reducing the number of steps involved in neutron capture and transduction.
Argonne nuclear engineer J’Tia Hart has been named to Crain’s Chicago Business’s “40 Under 40” list, which recognizes young leaders in a variety of fields.
For the first time, Argonne scientists have printed 3D parts that pave the way to recycling up to 97 percent of the waste produced by nuclear reactors.
