Workshop at CHESS Empowers Students in Synchrotron Techniques
The HEXT workshop empowers students to become productive members of the CHESS user community by combining informative lectures, hands-on demonstrations, and instruction in proposal writing. With its focus on attracting diverse participants and providing practical training, the HEXT workshop sets the stage for a more inclusive and vibrant synchrotron research landscape.
Picking up good vibrations – of proteins – at CHESS
A new method for analyzing protein crystals – developed by Cornell researchers and given a funky two-part name – could open up applications for new drug discovery and other areas of biotechnology and biochemistry.
Structural evolution of the kagome superconductors through charge density wave order
A new paper appearing in Physical Review Materials by a team from UCSB, Argonne National Lab, and Cornell, sheds new light on the structural evolution of kagome superconductors during CDW formation.
Using real-time data analysis to conduct next-generation synchrotron fatigue studies
A new paper appearing in the International Journal of Fatigue reports the first implementation of a real-time data analysis method for ff-HEDM, which can extract meaningful microscopic information as measurements are collected.
Inline small-angle X-ray scattering-coupled chromatography under extreme hydrostatic pressure
A new paper appearing in the journal “Protein Science” and authored by CHEXS-supported graduate student Robert Miller demonstrates for the first time that reproducible chromatographic separations coupled directly to high-pressure BioSAXS can be achieved at pressures up to at least 100 MPa.
The influence of Alloying on slip intermittency and the implications for dwell fatigue in titanium
The high precision of HEDM measurements at FAST offer new insight into the microscopic processes that cause dwell fatigue, pointing toward new alloying strategies for mitigation.
Protein family shows how life adapted to oxygen
Cornell scientists have created an evolutionary model that connects organisms living in today’s oxygen-rich atmosphere to a time, billions of years ago, when Earth’s atmosphere had little oxygen.
CHESS Welcomes New Staff Scientist - Steve Meisburger
Steve Meisburger joins CHESS as a staff Scientist at the FlexX beam line. Steve comes from the Ando Lab at Cornell, which studies how enzymes work by using a combination of biophysical and biochemical techniques. We are thrilled to have Steve join the CHESS team! Follow Steve on twitter: @meisborg
