APS Colloquium

The monthly APS Colloquium series benefits the Advanced Photon Source and Argonne communities by bringing distinguished scientists in all disciplines to lecture on topics of general interest. Objectives include the cross-fertilization of research initiatives at various institutions, and the identification of possible uses of the Advanced Photon Source. The lecturer is also invited to spend an additional day visiting with scientists at Argonne.
