A self-described ​“scientist who knows how to build things,” Winarski bridges worlds on a daily basis in his role with the upgrade project.
The Advanced Photon Source will hold a hybrid workshop to explore ideas for potential first experiments at the CSSI beamline. This two-day workshop will be held on Tuesday, August 1 and Wednesday, August 2, from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM CT both days. Registrants can attend the session in person at the APS or virtually.
The Advanced Photon Source will hold a hybrid workshop to explore ideas for potential first experiments at the ISN and PtychoProbe beamlines. This two-day workshop will be held on Thursday, August 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT and Friday, August 4, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. CT. Registrants can attend the session in person at the APS or virtually. Remote attendees will be able to participate in discussions.
With the removal phase of the Advanced Photon Source (APS) Upgrade completed, the APS storage ring tunnel now stands empty for the first time since the early 1990s. The installation of the new, state-of-the-art storage ring will begin this summer.
In 1994, this magnet — among the last to be installed in the APS — was signed by those who worked on the original facility. In May, the magnet was removed
As floor coordinator, Wayman acts as a liaison between beamline staff and the rest of the Advanced Photon Source.
The Advanced Photon Source will hold a hybrid workshop to explore ideas for potential first experiments at the XPCS beamline at 8-ID. This hybrid workshop will take place over two full-day sessions on July 18 and July 19.
WTTW’s Chicago Tonight featured a segment on the $815 million upgrade to Argonne National Laboratory's Advanced Photon Source. Project director Jim Kerby, physicist and group leader Jonathan Almer, and project manager Elmie Peoples-Evans discuss the project, what it means for the user facility and its impact on science.
Culminating decades of research, scientists at three DOE national laboratories have deployed a cutting-edge, fully functional magnetic device known as an undulator that uses superconducting wire made of niobium and tin.
GSK’s vaccine, Arexvy, is based in part on structural biology work conducted more than a decade ago at the Advanced Photon Source. Arexvy has been shown to prevent severe illness brought on by respiratory syncytial virus, which affects millions every year. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Arexvy for people 60 years old or older.
The team assembling the new electron storage ring for the Advanced Photon Source (APS) has achieved a significant milestone with the completion of their 100th module. The new storage ring, which will be installed as part of the APS Upgrade project, will be made up of 200 modules, each one containing several powerful electromagnets (each carefully aligned with one another), a complex vacuum system and various electrical and cooling systems.
The Advanced Photon Source will hold a hybrid workshop to explore ideas for potential first experiments at the POLAR beamline. This workshop will be held in person at the APS on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, from 9:00 to 17:00 CT. The workshop will also be streamed live, and remote attendees will be able to participate in discussions.
With the start of the construction period, the Advanced Photon Source is now only a year away from re-emerging as a world-leading X-ray light source. Its brighter beams will lead to new discoveries in energy storage, materials science, medicine and more.
Cai from Argonne’s X-ray Science division recognized for his commitment and advances in beamline science, most notably X-ray diffraction.
With the combination of Argonne’s supercomputer, Polaris, and the powerful X-ray beams of the Advanced Photon Source, the future of science is ultrafast
Marm Dixit, a Weinberg Distinguished Staff Fellow at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, was nominated for his work on imaging techniques for solid-state batteries.
Two X-ray Science Division group leaders, physicist Suresh Narayanan and principal computer scientist Nicholas Schwarz, have completed the Strategic Laboratory Leadership Program (SLLP).
As the APS Upgrade’s supply chain coordinator, Stankovik conducts detailed planning and forecasting to ensure all the materials are in place.
Argonne National Laboratory has partnered with SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory to develop a common platform for the submission and management of user scientific proposals.  
Scientists at the Advanced Photon Source are exploring ways to analyze X-ray data faster and with more precision. One new software package called TomocuPy has shown to be up to 30 times faster than the current practice.
