Advanced Photon Source

An Office of Science National User Facility


In May 2002, The Advanced Photon Source was reorganized into three divisions: the Accelerator Systems Division (ASD), the APS Engineering Support Division (AES), and the X-Ray Science Division (XSD). Parts of the former User Program Division (UPD) were incorporated into XSD, while other parts were incorporated into AES.
