Argonne National Laboratory seeks solutions to pressing national problems in science and technology. The nation's first national laboratory, Argonne conducts leading-edge basic and applied scientific research in virtually every scientific discipline. Argonne researchers work closely with researchers from hundreds of companies, universities, and federal, state and municipal agencies to help them solve their specific problems, advance America's scientific leadership and prepare the nation for a better future. With employees from more than 60 nations, Argonne is managed by the UChicago Argonne, LLC for the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science.

The Advanced Photon Source (APS), which is an Office of Science user facility funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, is one of the most technologically complex machines in the world. This premier national research facility provides the brightest high-energy X-ray beams in the Western Hemisphere to more than 5,700 scientists each year from every U.S. state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and many countries around the world. These scientists come to the APS from academia, industry, medical schools, and other research institutions to carry out experiments that promises new discoveries in nearly every scientific discipline, including materials science; life science; chemistry; environmental, geological, and planetary science; and physics. The X-ray beams provided by this remarkable facility enable the collection of data in unprecedented detail and in amazingly short time frames. The knowledge these researchers gain at the APS has a real and positive impact on our technologies, our health, our economy, and our fundamental understanding of the materials that make up our world.
