Upgrade to advanced photon source announced by DOE
Date:5/3/2010

iency virus and other diseases, the creation of new nanomaterials, and advances in nanobiology, among other developments.

"Data collated at the APS was used by the scientists who won the 2009 Nobel Prize in chemistry," said Don Levy, Vice President for Research and for National Laboratories at the University of Chicago. UChicago Argonne LLC manages Argonne for DOE. "A new world of discoveries will be possible because of the upgrade," he said.

"The scientific vision which drove upgrade planning is the need to image real materials under real conditions in real time, with resolution far better than is available today," said APS Director and Argonne Associate Lab Director for Photon Sciences J. Murray Gibson."This is key to solving the materials needs for sustainable energy and understanding the hierarchy of life to combat disease. The upgrade will allow the Advanced Photon Source to meet the needs of today's and tomorrow's scientists without the need for building an entirely new facility."

The announcement, at the APS users meeting at Argonne, was made by Dr. Pedro Montano, Director of the Scientific User Facilities Division of the Office of Basic Energy Sciences within DOE's Office of Science, which supports the APS.

The Upgrade at a Glance

Accelerator-based X-ray source innovations: Record brightness for penetrating X-rays at 25 keV and above using long straight sections, higher beam current and pioneering superconducting undulators; transverse radio-frequency deflection cavities to generate unique high-repetition-rate, 1-picosecond-duration X-ray pulses.

Unique X-ray capabilities and new beamlines: Long imaging beamlines, nanometer focusing optics for penetrating X-rays, short-pulse X-rays, high magnetic fields, inelastic scattering, phase contrast and nanobeams in realistic environments. These capabilities will answer key scientific questions and will result in ultrahigh phase contrast of more than thre
