It is with deep sorrow that we note the passing of our colleague, Dr. Kanagalaghatta R. Rajashankar, long-time Associate Director of the Northeastern Collaborative Access Team.
Ashley Weiland, a graduate student in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at The University of Texas at Dallas, will have the opportunity to use x-rays to study such crystal growth as it unfolds — without having to open the oven.
The goal of replenishing and strengthening the management team of the Argonne X-ray Science Division in the Advanced Photon Source has been achieved with the appointment of Dean Haeffner as Associate Division Director for Beamline Development, and Alec Sandy as Associate Division Director for…
Mikhail Solovyev, who is working toward a Ph.D. in chemistry at Rutgers University-Newark, will be spending the next year at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory working on a first-of-its-kind analysis that may help develop the next generation of…
Light filters through large windows at Claire Zurkowski’s apartment, where she sits at her loom, weaving bright yellow-orange thread into a rug already filled with the colors of the rainbow. Her works are inspired by the refraction patterns of the crystals she studies as a graduate student in…
The report on the “Workshop on Biological Science Opportunities Provided by the APS Upgrade” held at Argonne on August 20-21, 2018, is now available.
Imaging and measuring the atomization process in a gas turbine combustor using the bright x-rays from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Photon Source has been chosen by RDECOM Research Laboratory, the Army's corporate research laboratory under the Army Research Laboratory (ARL), as one of…
