With the start of the construction period, the Advanced Photon Source is now only a year away from re-emerging as a world-leading X-ray light source. Its brighter beams will lead to new discoveries in energy storage, materials science, medicine and more.
Argonne’s Aurora supercomputer and upgraded Advanced Photon Source will be powerful tools for discovery. Together, they’ll form a scientific supermerger: The combined data collection and computing power will advance discovery time and unlock new science.
As part of a massive upgrade to the Advanced Photon Source (APS), scientists studying the “chemical map” of samples will have better proximity to colleagues, improved research tools and state-of-the-art facilities.
