Timing is everything: Time-resolved experiments add niche offering at CHESS
Working alongside users, a new operating mode for CESR has been developed, allowing researchers to image processes on time scales ranging from nanoseconds to microseconds. With exquisite temporal resolution, this capability empowers researchers to investigate phenomena such as chemical reactions, shock waves, phase transitions, and biological processes.
CHESS receives $20M from NSF for new X-ray beamline
The U.S. National Science Foundation has awarded the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) nearly $20 million to build a new precision X-ray beamline for research on biological and environmental systems.
Wilson West Update - January 2024
The Wilson West construction project is about to enter the next phase as we head into construction and installation of interior X-ray facilities.
National Science Data Fabric and CHESS Collaborate to Democratize Data-Driven Scientific Discovery
In a groundbreaking initiative aimed at democratizing data-driven scientific discovery, the National Science Data Fabric (NSDF) and the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) have collaborated in establishing a trans-disciplinary approach for integrated data delivery and access to research data visualization, shared storage, networking, and computing resources.
CHESS celebrates construction milestone with Wilson West open house
On Wednesday, November 15, CHESS had an open house for members of the Cornell community in the new Wilson West expansion project. The project recently received its temporary certificate of occupancy, which marks a milestone in the construction project.
Intragranular micromechanical fields at triple junctions
New research provides a 3D investigation using multiple synchrotron x-ray techniques to enable targeted zoom-ins onto six individual grains and spatial linking across length scales, characterizing the intragranular micromechanical fields along all triple junctions within select grains.
Residual Stress Model Validation of Cold Hole Expansion in an Aerospace Aluminum Alloy
Recent measurements at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) produced data to validate a cold hole expansion (CHE) process simulation model as part of the United States Air Force (USAF) Enhanced Life Management by Engineered Residual Stress (ELMERS) program. The results quantify through-thickness residual stresses that will enable the USAF, and ultimately the taxpayer, to save money through more effective use of aerospace components.
Cyberinfrastructure Training Program Aims to Empower Scientists at CHESS
CHESS, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the University of Southern California have been awarded a collaborative grant to support a new training program that seeks to empower scientists conducting research at CHESS.
