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.
After almost two months, the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source partially restarted operations in June to conduct research related to treatment of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
MSN-C at CHESS measures modeling activity for the development of structural materials and applications. See how Caterpillar validates their engineering models.
Diego Soto, a chemistry major at University of Puerto Rico and research assistant at UPR’s Molecular Sciences Research Center, is taking the switch to online learning in stride.
