Argonne’s Physics Division is organized into four research groups, which share knowledge and expertise to create a program of multidisciplinary nuclear physics research that makes full use of the division’s facilities. This program initiates collaborative projects that yield new insights into the core of matter.
Our accelerator development group conducts a broad range of accelerator R&D to advance technologies for future DOE facilities and other applications. The R&D program specializes in RF superconductivity for accelerators and is a recognized world leader in the application of this technology to ion accelerators.
The goals of Argonne’s Medium Energy Physics group involve testing our understanding of the structure of hadrons and the structure of nuclei, and developing and exploiting new technologies for high-impact applications in nuclear physics, tests of fundamental symmetries and other national priorities.
