Study proposes new way to measure superconducting fluctuationsMarch 10, 2015

A study published last month by researchers at Argonne provides theoretical evidence for a new effect that may lead to a way of measuring the exact temperature at which superconductivity kicks in and shed light on the poorly understood properties of superconducting materials above this temperature.

Argonne research expanding from injectors to inhalersMarch 4, 2015

In collaboration with Australian researchers, Argonne’s scientists are using decades of experience analyzing vehicle fuel injectors to study medical inhalers, hoping to unlock the secrets of the devices that are so well known to asthma sufferers everywhere.

2015 Regional National Science Bowl Battery Car Competition
Argonne will host the 2015 Regional National Science Bowl Battery Car Competition on Saturday, March 21, 2015, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at CNH Industrial, 6900 Veterans Blvd. Burr Ridge, IL 60527.

The race will take place on a 20 meter track and will consist of time trials. The top teams from the time trials will advance to the modified double elimination. The winning team will go on to the National Event held in Washington, D.C. April 30 - May 4, 2015.

Workshop on Artefacts in X-Ray TomographyFebruary 23, 2015

The international workshop "Artefacts in X-Ray Tomography" held from 9 to 13 February 2015 at the Lorentz Center in Leiden (The Netherlands) aimed at initiate an in-depth discussion on the various artefacts that arise in X-ray computed tomography both using laboratory and synchrotron sources.

LDRD Workshop
The Postdoctoral Society of Argonne and the Postdoctoral Program Office present a Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) Workshop Thursday, March 12, 2015, 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. in the Building 362 Auditorium.

Lunch will be served at 11:45 a.m. with presentations from the panel at 12 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.

Shape-shifting groups of nanorods release heat differentlyFebruary 18, 2015

Researchers at Argonne have revealed previously unobserved behaviors that show how the transfer of heat at the nanoscale causes nanoparticles to change shape in groups.

Campus Utility Upgrades

Campus utility upgrades support both programmatic equipment and facility operational needs. They will provide essential support for the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility high performance computing upgrades, expected to occur in FY 2018.
