Argonne Design Works

Argonne Design Works

Argonne Design Works (ADW) offers a liaison that can navigate the complete spectrum of the laboratory’s capabilities, cutting across all the diverse scientific fields represented at Argonne. This concierge approach will help industry benefit from access to cutting-edge facilities beyond the research budgets of most firms.

Institute for Molecular Engineering

Institute for Molecular Engineering

The Institute for Molecular Engineering (IME), housed at Argonne in the Materials Science Division, is addressing a set of key research areas that seek to produce key advances in a number different areas. Each one aims at a major societal problem of global significance: Arts, Sciences, and Technology; Energy Storage and Harvesting; Immuno-Engineering and Cancer; Molecular Engineering of Water Resources; Quantum Information and Technology; and Nano-Patterning and Nanolithography.

Joint Center for Energy Storage Research

Joint Center for Energy Storage Research

The Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) is a public/private partnership that brings together world-leading scientists, engineers, and manufacturers with an important mission: develop clean energy storage technologies for transportation and the electricity grid. The Center was established by the Department of Energy as an Energy Innovation Hub in 2012and is led by Argonne National Laboratory. Our partners include five national laboratories, ten universities, and five industrial firms. Explore our website and discover how we are leading the way to transformational change in energy storage.

EFRC

Energy Frontier Research Centers

Argonne plays a key role in several U.S. Department of Energy-sponsored Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs) programs. These integrated, multi-investigator centers involve partnerships among universities, national laboratories, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit firms that conduct fundamental research focusing on one or more ​“grand challenges.”

Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials (MICCoM)

Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials (MICCoM)

The Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials (MICCoM) is a DOE-BES Computational Materials Science program located at Argonne with collaborators at the University of Chicago, University of Michigan, University of California, Davis, Notre Dame, and Northwestern University.  Launched in 2015, MICCoM develops and disseminates interoperable open source software, data, and validation procedures, enabling the community to predict properties of functional materials. The distinctive features of the center are:

  • Development of interoperable codes for simulation of materials at multiple length and time scales
  • Focus on heterogeneous materials, inclusive of defects, interfaces and building blocks assembled out of equilibrium
  • Focus on spectroscopic and transport properties
