Argonne National Laboratory Technologies Available for Licensing
Argonne National Laboratory is a multidisciplinary research center focused on improving the human condition through science and engineering. Argonne’s mission is to provide science-based solutions to national and global challenges through transformational, fundamental research and discovery, and use-inspired, mission-driven science and engineering.
Argonne leverages its Chicago-area location to speed innovation by convening internationally renowned research collaborations, such as the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research, a national consortium of labs, universities, and industry focused on developing revolutionary, commercially viable batteries for transportation and the power grid. Argonne also hosts two Energy Frontier Research Centers—the Center for Electrical Energy Storage and the Institute for Atom-Efficient Chemical Transformations.
The impact of Argonne’s research is enhanced by its unique suite of cutting-edge scientific facilities, which annually draw more than 6,500 users from around the globe. The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility’s Mira—a 10-petaflop IBM Blue Gene/Q high-performance computer—is one of the world’s fastest, enabling simulations and analysis of massive datasets that can yield perspectives on worldwide climate change, optimize battery performance, or model complex functions within a single human cell.
The Advanced Photon Source, one of the world’s highest-energy X-ray imaging devices, provides extraordinary characterization capabilities that enable the study of samples in situ, in real time, and under realistic conditions. The national user facilities at Argonne also include the Center for Nanoscale Materials, the Electron Microscopy Center, the Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System, the Southern Great Plains and Mobile Facility II Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Climate Research Facilities, and the Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center.
