XES Workshop attracts remote participants from across the globe
In conjunction with the Users’ Meeting, CHESS also hosted the 2nd X-ray Emission Spectroscopic Methods Workshop.
Connecting with the community in a meaningful and impactful way
Even as CHESS’s Outreach and Education team refocuses its K12 efforts to concentrate on higher education, we haven’t abandoned the relationships we’ve built through a shared vision for equitable access to science in our community.
Particle accelerator upgrades keep Cornell competitive
ITHACA, NY (WSKG) – Students running around the track at Cornell University’s Charles F. Berman field might not realize that about five stories down there’s another track sending atoms circling – a particle accelerator. It was shut down this week for massive upgrades.
BioSAXS Essentials 8 workshop introduces state-of-the-art density program
In an era when our most detailed pictures of biomolecules come from frozen or crystalline samples, biological small angle X-ray solution scattering (BioSAXS) is more essential than ever as a tool for learning how molecules actually behave under realistic biological conditions in the liquid state.
CHESS squeezes in an early Users’ Meeting prior to extended shutdown
The annual CHESS Users’ Meeting was held this year on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, earlier than usual due to our upgrade project, CHESS-U, starting this June.
Self-assembling 3D battery would charge in seconds
The world is a big place, but it’s gotten smaller with the advent of technologies that put people from across the globe in the palm of one’s hand. And as the world has shrunk, it has also demanded that things happen ever faster – including the time it takes to charge an electronic device.
Controlling morphologies at the nano-scale
Nano-structure of thin polymer films is precisely controlled by new type of annealing
The big changes at CHESS you’ve been hearing about for the past couple of years are about to take place. CHESS is being transformed by both a major facility upgrade – the CHESS-U upgrade project – and a transition to a new funding and organizational model.
