Dana Capatina draws the future of the Advanced Photon Source’s beamlines

<p>The Advanced Photon Source (APS), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory, creates ultrabright beams of X-ray light, and those beams will be up to 500 times brighter when the APS Upgrade project is completed in the coming years. But that’s only half the story. In order for the cutting-edge research at the APS to happen, those X-rays need to be sent to experimental stations called beamlines, where they are focused and manipulated for scientific research.</p>
