Advanced science and technology to advance science and technology
Argonne maintains a comprehensive suite of research facilities central to the laboratory’s scientific enterprise. From particle accelerators to automotive testbeds, these facilities give Argonne scientists and their collaborators access to tools and techniques found in many instances nowhere else.
At the MRCAT/EnviroCAT Insertion Device beamline located at the Advanced Photon Source, emphasis is focused on XAS-based studies. Currently, it is the only ID beamline in the United States dedicated to XAS measurements.
The Environmental Sample Preparation and Sequencing Facility at Argonne National Laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility for nucleic acid extraction, library preparation, and ultra-high throughput sequencing.
The Environmentally Assisted Cracking (EAC) Laboratory uses four autoclave systems to evaluate the resistance of nuclear reactor structural materials to environmentally assisted cracking in simulated LWR coolant environments.
