Stephenson Brian

Faculty, students, and staff are invited to join ND Energy and Brian Stephenson for a discussion on Argonne’s research divisions and activities in materials science, chemistry, and x-ray science. Stephenson is an Argonne Distinguished Fellow in the Materials Science Division of Argonne National Laboratory. 

Abstract:
Argonne National Laboratory, located outside of Chicago, is the U.S. Department of Energy’s multi-purpose science laboratory in the Midwest. Argonne has research divisions spanning the full range of physical, biological, and computer science and technology, as well as major user facilities. I will present an overview of Argonne, with a focus on activities in materials science, chemistry, and x-ray science. This is an exciting time, with an accelerating rate of high-impact results fueled by new experimental and computational tools. My goal will be to foster additional research and scholastic ties by outlining opportunities for engagement between Argonne and the faculty, students, and leadership of the University of Notre Dame.

Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Basic Energy Sciences, Division of Materials Sciences and Engineering.
