The upgraded Advanced Photon Source will need a new optics system, one that is much more precise than the current one. A team of Argonne specialists created the new system, and even had to invent new tools to design and test it.
Research partly conducted at the Advanced Photon Source helped scientists discover the composition of Earth’s first atmosphere. What they found raises questions about the origin of life on Earth.
Collaborators use experiments, high-fidelity simulations and machine learning to deliver predictive tools to engine manufacturers.
For the first time, a team of researchers has captured X-ray images of a critical enzyme of the COVID-19 virus performing its function. This discovery could improve design of new treatments against the disease.
The Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory is proud to welcome five new FY21 Maria Goeppert Mayer Fellows to campus, each chosen for their incredible promise in their respective fields.
A group of scientists from around the country, including those at Argonne National Laboratory, have discovered a way to make AI-related hardware more efficient and sustainable.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and the University of California San Diego have discovered that a material that looks geometrically similar to rock salt could be an interesting candidate for lithium battery anodes that would be used in fast charging applications.
Researchers from Purdue University and Argonne National Laboratory have used intense X-rays to inspect irradiated nuclear fuel.
In a ceremony at Argonne, leaders from the Department of Energy joined the lab in breaking ground on two new beamlines that will enable new innovations in many different scientific fields.
It’s been almost 25 years since the APS first saw light. An $815 million upgrade is currently underway with an anticipated first light in 2023. The APS Upgrade will provide the scientific community with unprecedented new research opportunities.
A collaboration between Argonne and several universities has led to the creation of a new high-throughput X-ray diffraction instrument that will enable materials research and clear the way for improvements in advance of the APS Upgrade.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne and Los Alamos National Laboratories have identified a new class of X-ray detectors based on layered perovskites, a semiconducting material.
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.
Berkeley Lab scientists have made a surprising discovery that could help explain our risk for developing chronic diseases or cancers as we get older, and how our food decomposes over time.
Researchers have used X-ray techniques to investigate particular features of the geometric configuration of tiny particles of chocolate to see how they impact mouthfeel.
By using sound waves, scientists have begun to explore fundamental stress behaviors in a crystalline material that could form the basis for quantum information technologies.
