Advanced Photon Source Upgrade Project

The Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory uses high-energy X-ray beams to peer deep into the atomic and molecular structures of materials and living organisms as small as a few nanometers. The APS has been providing the U.S. scientific community with the expertise and research tools that enable breakthroughs such as improved battery technologies, an understanding of how engine fuel injectors function, treatment for the human immunodeficiency virus and other diseases, the creation of new nanomaterials and advances in nanobiology, among other developments. Take a look inside a recent APS upgrade.
