Lead uptake and distribution in horns from goats
"Spatial analysis of horns for lead accumulation may be useful as a qualitative marker of time-resolved exposures that may reflect specific periods of acute lead absorption."
To Twin or Not to Twin: Micromechanical Response in Magnesium probed with High Energy X-Rays
"Reducing the weight of vehicles translates into energy conservation in transportation which is beneficial for economic and environmental reasons."
High-Energy Diffraction Microscopy under Pressure
"Validating these mechanisms and models is critical for accelerating the adoption of new material systems in the field."
A Brilliant Relationship - Detector Development at Cornell
Through the CHESS-U upgrade, the X-rays produced at CHESS are now brighter than ever. Combining these brilliant X-rays with new and inventive detectors developed by the Cornell Detector Group will provide new possibilities for X-ray experiments that are not possible today.
Nearest neighbors and beyond: Reciprocal space imaging of ionic correlations in intercalation compounds
"The ability to generate a real-space ‘image’ of interatomic vectors from reciprocal space data, makes this technique a powerful tool in the investigation of intercalation compounds, "
Step-by-Step: Revealing the mechanism of a protein-cleaving enzyme by crystallographic snapshots
"These unusual enzymes have been implicated in diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s disease to malaria, type II diabetes, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, cholera and tuberculosis."
CHESS Hosts Workshop on Advanced Manufacturing of Engineering Alloys
CHESS, especially the NSF-funded Center for High Energy X-ray Sciences (CHEXS) at CHESS and the Materials Solution Network at CHESS (MSN-C) supported by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), recently hosted the workshop “Methods for Characterizing Defects in Advanced Manufacturing Processes” jointly with Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).
The driving force behind Cornell Compact Undulators at CHESS
Researchers at CHESS are working to further improve the already impressive CHESS Compact Undulator, or CCU. Within the new NSF-funded CHEXS award, Sasha Temnykh is developing a new driving mechanisms that will add variable gap control and even better tuning of the device, both desirable qualities for a variety of experimental needs.
