Argonne National Laboratory Tour Highlights

Argonne National Laboratory seeks solutions to pressing national problems in science and technology. The nation's first national laboratory, Argonne conducts leading-edge basic and applied scientific research in virtually every scientific discipline. Argonne researchers work closely with researchers from hundreds of companies, universities, and federal, state and municipal agencies to help them solve their specific problems, advance America's scientific leadership and prepare the nation for a better future.

The tour will include a visit to the Storage Ring and the Booster of the Advanced Photon Source (APS) and the Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS) technical and equipment areas. With employees from more than 60 nations, Argonne is managed by the UChicago Argonne, LLC for the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science.

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory Tour Highlights

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, located in Batavia, Illinois, is the United States’ premier particle physics laboratory. More than 2,300 scientists from around the world collaborate with Fermilab to explore the nature of matter, energy, space and time. Together with Fermilab staff, they use the laboratory’s technology centers and expertise to develop better particle accelerators and build the world’s most advanced particle detectors. Nine accelerators and storage rings provide particle beams to a diverse suite of research projects. Fermilab employs 1,900 people and is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.
