Synchrotron Science

We are avid and experienced users of U.S. National Laboratories especially the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Lab (Argonne, Illinois). Synchrotron facilities provide intense sources of electromagnetic radiation that allow us to probe the atomic structures of materials, understand their properties and behaviors, and observe their formation and transformation (see our publications page for more information).
