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."
Alyson Yamada is a woman with a unique story. Prior to attending Stanford, she was a dedicated ballet dancer. But due to an unfortunate injury that ended her dance career, Alyson was inspired to research something that could help her injury and decided to study mechanical engineering. She is now majoring in Biomechanical Design and Engineering, an individually designed major within the School of Engineering.
Yuko Shiroyanagi (right) and Chuck Doose of the Accelerator Science Division prepare the magnetic measurement test stand. 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.
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.
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.
