It is very important that you allow enough time for the check-in process prior to your scheduled beam time (2 hours for new users). No extra time can be added to your scheduled beam time to make up for time loss due to the check-in-process, so please arrive early.

  • If you are bringing Hazardous Materials DO NOT bring them into the facility until you have met with the CHESS Operator and Safety Officer assigned to your proposal.
  • If you have not notified us of all Hazardous Materials and you arrive with a substance we consider hazardous it WILL NOT be allowed in the building.
  • When you arrive at Wilson Laboratory follow the signs from the parking lot to the CHESS Reception area located on the 2nd floor (286) of Wilson Laboratory.
  • From here our CHESS Operator will check you in.
    • If you have a Hazardous Material, inform the CHESS
      Operator, so that they may contact the Safety Officer
      assigned, and begin the check-in procedure.
    • Your group, if vehicle is not pre-registered at Cornell, will
      be provided with a parking permit which must be returned
      prior to your leaving.
      Should your group not return the parking permit, the
      User will be charged $140 for the permit.
    • Each member of the group will be processed
      and provided with a radiation badge.
    • Those group members who did not complete the
      On-line Safety tour/quiz will be asked to at this time.
      TIP - Do it before you come to CHESS.
    • The group will be given a tour of the facility as well
      as Safety and Equipment training.
    • For macromolecular users a MacCHESS Operator has
      been assigned to assist you with the set-up, there will
      also be a staff scientist available or on-call to answer
      any questions.
