Background/History of the Laboratory:

Argonne National Laboratory, one of the U.S. Department of Energy's oldest and largest national laboratories for science and engineering research, employs roughly 3,200 employees, including about 1,000 scientists and engineers, three-quarters of whom hold doctoral degrees. Argonne's annual operating budget of around $630 million supports upwards of 200 research projects.  Since 1990, Argonne has worked with more than 600 companies and numerous federal agencies and other organizations.

Mission of the Laboratory:

The mission of the Laboratory is to apply a unique mix of world-class science, engineering and user facilities to deliver innovative research and technologies. We create new knowledge that addresses the most important scientific and societal needs of our nation.


Argonne scientists and engineers carry out both fundamental and applied scientific projects and maintain a number of large scientific user facilities that enhance research, especially projects that use hard X-rays and advanced computers. User facilities include:
  • Advanced Photon Source (APS)
  • Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM)
  • Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS)
  • Electron Microscopy Center (EMC)
  • Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF)
  • Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center (TRACC)
  • Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Climate Research Facility (ARM)


Technology Transfer Mechanisms:

  • Some of the most innovative technology transfer at Argonne involves collaborative projects with industry. There are many types of contractual agreements to meet these needs. Please contact TDC at 800-627-2596 for further information.
