Argonne Accelerator Institute

Much of the research of Argonne National Laboratory, and indeed the scientific community at large depends on the accelerator based tools at Argonne.

In 2006, Argonne Laboratory Director Robert Rosner formed the AAI as a focal point for accelerator initiatives. The institute works to utilize Argonne’s extensive accelerator resources, to enhance existing facilities, to determine the future of accelerator development and construction, and to oversee a dynamic and acclaimed accelerator physics portfolio. 

The mission of the Argonne Accelerator Institute is centered upon the following related goals:
  • Locate next generation accelerator facilities in Northern Illinois
  • Advance accelerator technology
  • Oversee a selected, strategic, lab-wide, and acclaimed accelerator R&D portfolio
