About Argonne National Laboratory

“Argonne National Laboratory, located just outside of Chicago, is one of the U.S. Department of Energy’s largest national laboratories for scientific and engineering research. Our over 1,250 scientists and engineers aim to solve the nation’s most important challenges in energy, the environment and national security.

Our mission is to apply a unique mix of world-class science, engineering and user facilities to deliver innovative research and technologies. We create new knowledge that addresses the most important scientific and societal needs of our nation. Argonne’s programmatic activities cover all aspects of the innovation ecology: basic research, technology development and prototype development and testing. We regularly work with industry through exclusive licensing, joint research and a variety of other mechanisms to transfer our inventions to the marketplace.

Research at the Argonne ICAM branch includes studies of the emergent properties of materials in the Materials Science Division and Center for Nanoscale Materials, biological physics/systems in the Computing and Life Sciences Directorate, and energy broadly across the Lab. In addition, the branch applies effort to public engagement via programs within the Communication, Education, and Public Affairs Division. Argonne is managed by UChicago Argonne, LLC, for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.”
