Argonne National Laboratory

The Argonne National Laboratory was born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s. This national research facility is renowned for its Advanced Photon Source, Linear Accelerator, Center for Nanoscale Materials, cutting edge computing facility, and other resources. Through a cooperative agreement, facilities for a variety of advanced technical artifact analyses are available to graduate students who wish to undertake the proper training, and several recent graduates have availed themselves of this opportunity for their dissertation research projects.
