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.
The 2023 CHESS User Meeting will feature two corresponding workshops: One on our new High Magnetic Field Beamline and one on High Pressure MX.
