September 29, 2009Join the adventure as Linda Young (Argonne Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division) publishes updates on the progress of her group as they carry out the first experiment to use the U.S. Department of Energy's Linac Coherent Light Source—the next-generation laser x-ray source at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory—which produces pulses of x-rays more than a billion times brighter than the most powerful existing sources.
September 17, 2009Linda Young, a leader in the field of atomic, molecular, and optical physics, has accepted the position of Division Director for the Argonne National Laboratory X-ray Science Division at the Advanced Photon Source.
August 11, 2009New x-ray instrumentation will be the result of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding in the amount of $7.9 M obtained by the Advanced Photon Source as part of a competitive exercise among all four U.S. Department of Energy light source facilities at national laboratories. The funding will also allow the hiring of three technical support employees.
