This laboratory took birth from Enrico Fermi’s secret charge- the Manhattan Project to create the world’s first self-sustaining nuclear reaction. On December 2, 1942 the team constructed a Chicago pile-1 code named “Metallurgical Lab” which achieved critically, underneath the University of Chicago’s Stagg football field stands. On July 1, 1946, the laboratory was formally chartered as Argonne National Laboratory to conduct “cooperative research in nucleonics”. In the late 1940’s and early 1950’s the laboratory moved to a larger location in Lemont, Illinois and established a remote location in Idaho, called “ Argonne-west,” to conduct further nuclear research. There were many discoveries made by many scientists who contributed their whole and sole to complete their research in many fields. Janet smith and Robert Fischetti developed the first micro X-ray beam for structural at Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source. This played a major role in the development of world’s first solar shingles which are made by Dow Chemicals. This also helped in curing the advanced kidney cancer in 2009 and also the soft tissue sarcoma in 2012.
