The following science pages will show how X-rays have become a mainstream tool for examining the structure and function of our material world, with an eye towards designing new materials, solving technological problems, and even curing diseases.
CHESS users come from around the world and represent both academic and corporate communities.
CHESS has proposed that the NSF support a “sub-facility” at CHESS. This allows other federal and state agencies, private foundations, academic institutions, and private industry to become partners with CHESS.
With a strong commitment to education, CHESS provides experiences to students, educators and the public that make science familiar and accessible.
The Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source is a high-intensity X-ray source which provides our users state-of-the-art synchrotron radiation facilities for research in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Environmental and Materials Sciences.
X-ray science has come a long way since X-rays were first discovered. Join us as we celebrate the technical and scientific achievements made by the light source community over the past 75 years.
The High Energy X-ray Techniques (HEXT) workshop took place in late May, giving students the knowledge and skills to plan, conduct, and interpret synchrotron experiments.
