    Docket Number: 19-011. Applicant: University of Chicago Argonne LLC, Operator of Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 South Cass Avenue, Lemont, IL 60439-4873. Instrument: Q1 magnets. Manufacturer: Danfysik A/S, Denmark. Intended Use: According to the applicant, the instrument is a component of a 4th generation synchrotron accelerator, i.e., the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade (APSU) accelerator, which is one of the most technologically complex machines in the world. APSU is a non-profit research facility that will provide ultra-bright, high-energy x-ray beams to more than 5000 (and growing) scientists from across the United States. APSU provides x-ray beams of a broad parameters that allows scientists to collect data in unprecedented detail and in short time frames. The research results users achieve through APS constantly make real and positive impact on our technologies, health, economy, and fundamental understandings of the materials that make up our world.

    Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Start Printed Page 67258Commissioner of Customs: November 20, 2019.

    Docket Number: 19-014. Applicant: University of Chicago Argonne LLC, Operator of Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 South Cass Avenue, Lemont, IL 60439-4873. Instrument: Q2 magnets. Manufacturer: SigmaPhi, France. Intended Use: According to the applicant, the instrument is a component of a 4th generation synchrotron accelerator, i.e., the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade (APSU) which will be used to study ultra-bright, high-energy x-ray beams to more than 5000 (and growing) scientists from across the United States. APSU provides x-ray beams of a broad parameters that allow scientists to collect data in unprecedented detail and in amazingly short time frames. The research results our users achieved through APS constantly make real and positive impact on our technologies, health, economy, and fundamental understandings of the materials that make up our world. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: November 2, 2017.
