Research machines probe nature for medical, technological insights Aerial photo of the Advanced Photon Source
Argonne National Laboratory performs basic scientific research in two ways.

First, like the instruments in an orchestra, research disciplines from astrophysics to materials science are joined in a kind of scientific harmony at Argonne. This variety of research disciplines provides the expertise scientists need to probe nature's secrets and to contribute to the nation's science and technology knowledge base.

Second, for its own use and that of scientists from around the globe Argonne designs, builds and operates unique research facilities. Researchers come from industry, universities and other research laboratories to use these machines which are among the best in the world. Resulting experiments in biology, chemistry, geology and physics may lead to discoveries that can enhance knowledge and lead to safer, healthier lives. more >>
