Argonne maintains a wide-ranging science and technology portfolio that seeks to address complex challenges in interdisciplinary and innovative ways. Below is a list of all articles, highlights, profiles, projects, and organizations related specifically to synchrotron science.
Kathy Harkay was there at the start of the APS, working to determine the limits of what the machine could do. Now she’s working on upgrading the facility, and is looking forward to test-driving the new APS.
Medical research has benefitted from the scale, speed and efficiency of COVID-19 studies, and scientists are using the techniques developed to fight the pandemic in the race to stay ahead of emerging diseases.
Prototypes of new superconducting magnets for the upgraded Advanced Photon Source were successfully lowered to their operating temperatures, far below freezing. These new magnets will help the APS generate more powerful X-rays more efficiently.
