It’s a Friday night. Most of the population at Argonne, those with day jobs, have long since left—but the lights are still on at the Advanced Photon Source, and they will be all weekend, and the week after that, and the week after that.
Read "All-nighters for Science," Louise Lerner's (ANL-CPA) account of an overnight shift during a recent user-beam run at the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science's Advanced Photon Source national research facility at Argonne National Laboratory.
The article appears in the spring 2017 issue of Argonne Now, the Laboratory's science magazine.
Also featured in the spring 2017 issue is "A DRUG TO FIGHT HIV," one of the "Four examples of industry gaining an edge by using Argonne facilities."
