    Margaret Butler helps assemble the ORACLE computer with Oak Ridge National Laboratory engineer Rudolph Klein. In 1953, ORACLE was the world’s fastest computer. Designed at Argonne, it was constructed at Oak Ridge. Butler was a pioneering scientist who spent her career at the forefront of computer science and nuclear energy. Her spirit, drive, and analytical talents led to a lifetime of scientific contributions during an era when women were a rarity in a major scientific setting.

    A plaque outside Argonne’s Physics Building honors Maria Goeppert Mayer, winner of the 1963 Nobel Prize in Physics for her work to develop the shell model of the atomic nucleus. She kept her office in Argonne's Physics Building for the 15 years she worked at the laboratory.

    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."
