Argonne is 5th Best Place to work for postdocs

Argonne a top place to work for postdocs in 2013
For the third year in a row, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory is one of the 10 best places to work as a postdoctoral researcher, according to The Scientist magazine's annual survey. Argonne ranked fifth, moving up from sixth place last year, earning specific praise for its benefits and attention to personal and family life. More...

LASER APPLICATIONS LABORATORY
The laboratory focuses on collaborative research and development activities with industrial partners. The facility includes high-power industrial CO2 and Nd:YAG lasers, Nano-second pulse width Q-switch Nd:YAG lasers, five-axis workstations, and diagnostic systems for laser beam characterization, plasma analysis and process monitoring/control. Current collaborative research with industry include drilling rocks for petroleum applications, heat treating and glazing of steels, welding of metals and alloys, beam shaping and fiber optics and process monitoring. Other R&D activities include laser surface modification, laser ignition of mixture of natural gas and air and materials testing using laser thermal simulation.

ROBOTICS
This program supports experimental and theoretical work for improvements and applications of teleoperated robotic systems. Particular emphasis is on implementation of 'teleautonomy' and 'virtual fixture.' In teleautonomy, the robot's autonomous behavior is blended with human instruction for efficient teleoperation. Virtual fixture is an artificially generated surface overlaid on human perception - kinesthetic, visual, and auditory - to help precisely guide the robot motion in teleoperation. The application fields may include operation, inspection, repair, material handling, and decommissioning of nuclear facilities, and other recently emerging application in robotic surgery and service robots. Research topics of interest include dual-arm collaboration, machine vision and sensing, haptic feedback, machine intelligence, and remote control. Examples of activities for participants include programming, simulation, and hardware implementation and testing.

AEROSOL SCIENCES
Participants' primary responsibility will be to contribute to experimental investigations and theoretical modeling in the fields of basic and applied aerosol science. Opportunities also exist in the areas of computerized data acquisition and data reduction. Research applications include aerosol generation, transport, pollution control, sampling, and analysis for both nuclear and fossil power systems. Additional research areas involve the development of novel devices to disperse or collect particles or to develop instrumentation to measure aerosol parameters, pulsed corona applications, and spray generation and characterization. Basic areas of research include electrostatic particle charging, particle formation, transport, agglomeration, deposition, and adhesion mechanisms; radiative heat transfer in particle-laden gages; particle filtration; material erosion by aerosol impaction; aerosol-vapor interactions; and bioaerosol sampling and processing.

LIQUID METAL EXPERIMENTS SUPPORTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FACILITY FOR RARE ISOTOPE BEAMS (FRIB)
A number of studies are under way involving various aspects of liquid metal technology, primarily involving stripper films and targets. These may include studies of thin films, beam interactions with a flowing fluid, materials compatibility, potential lithium vapor transport in a vacuum system, and development of measurement techniques and data acquisition. These studies will closely coincide with ongoing laboratory experimental programs studying liquid metal phenomena. The participants work with staff who are developing the experimental demonstrations and measurement techniques, as well as the assembly and operation of the experimental apparatus.
