The prime national facility for nuclear structure research. The Argonne Tandem Linear Accelerator System (ATLAS) is the world’s first superconducting linear accelerator for heavy ions at energies in the vicinity of the Coulomb barrier.
The Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) at Argonne National Laboratory is a premier user facility providing expertise, instrumentation and infrastructure for interdisciplinary nanoscience and nanotechnology research.
The Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA) is a premier electron accelerator with the world’s highest bunch charge to carry out fundamental accelerator research with an emphasis on wakefield acceleration.
The Physics Division operates a target development laboratory that produces targets and foils of various thickness and substrates, depending on the requirements for experiments performed at the ATLAS accelerator.
The Radioanalytical Counting Laboratory is equipped numerous detectors for alpha, gamma, and electron counting to directly support the production of radioactive targets and experiments performed at ATLAS.
