Chemist Lin Chen is recognized internationally for her ground-breaking contributions in the excited-state structural studies using X-ray transient absorption spectroscopy. She was honored in 2012 as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for her "contributions to understanding structural dynamics of molecular excited states with special emphasis on problems related to renewable energy."
Jennifer Salazar is a Coordinating Writer and Editor in Argonne’s Computing, Environment and Life Sciences directorate. "I've found that our researchers want to share what excites them and communicate it to others in the wider research community or to the public, and this offers a great environment for a writer," she said.
Nuclear engineer Laural Briggs reviews pressure distribution results from a 217-pin fuel assembly simulation. The simulation was computed by Argonne's Nek5000 large eddy simulation tool on the IBM Blue Gene/P Intrepid supercomputer.

Testing ensures that the super-conducting undulator for the Advanced Photon Source upgrade will meet the high-precision requirements needed to generate the world's brightest X-rays above energies of 25 keV.
