The Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory is one of the most technologically complex machines in the world. This premier national research facility provides ultra-bright, high-energy x-ray beams to more than 5,000 (and growing) scientists from around the United States and the world. These scientists (we call them "users") come to the APS from universities, industry, medical schools, and other research institutions. Our users bring with them ideas for new discoveries in nearly every scientific discipline, from materials science to biology, chemistry, environmental, geological, and planetary science, and fundamental physics. They bring their ideas to the APS because our x-ray beams let them collect data in unprecedented detail and in amazingly short time frames. The knowledge our users gain here promises to have real and positive impact on our technologies, our health, our economy, and our fundamental understanding of the materials that make up our world.
