Synchrotron "X-ray Micromechanics" course now online
As part of the mission of InSitμ@CHESS, the ONR-funded center focused on developing new High Energy X-ray Diffraction (HEXD) users and methods, the staff has developed and made available an online course for novice X-ray users with backgrounds in engineering.
A pioneer of scientific tools
Sol Gruner, known for developing x-ray detectors, is a toolmaker, tackling scientific problems and exploring the unknown.
The Real Thing: D-line sample robot serves first user group
Combinatorial thin film research can comprise hundreds of samples grown with slightly different compositions or processing conditions.
New electron microscope sees more than an image
The electron microscope, a powerful tool for science, just became even more powerful, with an improvement developed by Cornell physicists. Their electron microscope pixel array detector (EMPAD) yields not just an image, but a wealth of information about the electrons that create the image and, from that, more about the structure of the sample.
First self-assembled superconductor structure created
Building on nearly two decades’ worth of research, a multidisciplinary team at Cornell has blazed a new trail by creating a self-assembled, three-dimensional gyroidal superconductor.
