Four decades ago, an ambitious group of women scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory banded together to help form a group that would empower generations of women to come.
For the first time, physicists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory and their collaborators, led by a team from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, demonstrated a long-theorized nuclear effect.
For nuclear physicists, the ultimate sleuths, the better the instruments, the better they can understand the subatomic ingredients of our world such as nuclei, the positively charged masses within atoms that contain neutrons and protons.
On their quest to uncover what the universe is made of, researchers at Argonne National Laboratory are harnessing the power of supercomputers to make predictions about particle interactions that are more precise than ever before.
Hendrik (Harry) Joseph Weerts has been named the associate laboratory director for the Physical Sciences and Engineering (PSE) directorate at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory.
