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.
Six corrosion test facilities and two thermogravimetric systems for conducting corrosion tests in complex mixed gas environments, in steam and in the presence of deposits, and five facilities for metal dusting degradation.
Argonne’s High-Throughput Research Laboratory (HTRL) utilizes highly automated and parallel approaches for applying high-throughput and combinatorial experimental methodologies to accelerate the development of new materials.
