If you have had a medical or dental X-ray, you know they are good at penetrating objects. Now imagine making those X-rays more intense by a billion times a billion and focusing them down to a size smaller than the point of a pin. What science could you do? Learn about the engineering involved in building large X-ray microscopes at Argonne National Laboratory. These football-field length instruments harness intense X-rays for use by every scientific discipline. Find out forefront examples of the resulting X-ray imaging created from STEM fields as diverse as entomology, medicine, biology, energy, environmental science, physics, materials chemistry and geology.
