Dynamics of recrystallized grains in a hot-compressed Mg-Zn-Ca alloy
Recent research performed at CHESS presents new insights into the microstructural evolution which occurs during annealing of Mg alloys using in-situ X-ray diffraction. These alloys have potential to make vehicles lighter and reduce greenhouse gases.
Students of Puerto Rico Designing Techniques of HMF at CHESS
The Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source, CHESS, and the University of Puerto Rico are continuing a collaboration that will shape the future of the synchrotron X-Ray laboratory as it builds the new High Magnetic Field facility, HMF.
Characterization of 128 x 128 MM-PAD-2.1 ASIC: a fast framing hard x-ray detector with high dynamic range
Hybrid pixel array detectors (PADs) have proven to be powerful, versatile area detectors for x-ray science. A new prototype would enable significant advances in time-resolved studies of dynamic phenomena.
Matt Miller elected the Willis H. Carrier Professor in Engineering at Cornell
Congratulations to Matt Miller, Principal Investigator for MSN-C. Matt was just named the Willis H. Carrier Professor in Engineering at Cornell - effective July 1, 2022.
Unconventional Hysteretic Transition in a Charge Density Wave
In a new paper appearing in Physical Review Letters, research co-first-authored by postdoctoral fellows Baiqing Lyu (MIT) and Alfred Zong (Berkeley) and a team lead by Prof. Nuh Gedik (MIT), claim that EuTe4 sets a new record for hysteresis in a crystalline solid.
CHESS celebrates expansion and $8.5M funding for subfacility
The Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) celebrated the groundbreaking for a new $32.6 million high magnetic field project April 14 – the facility’s latest milestone.
Watch Senator Schumer's Visit to CHESS
On April 14th, 2022, Senator Chuck Schumer visited CHESS to celebrate continued funding of the facility and the ground breaking of the new High Magnetic Field beamline. Watch the live stream and a recap below.
HMF - A first-of-its-kind X-Ray facility
X-rays can uniquely address fundamental, long-standing questions about the nature of matter in high magnetic fields. The new HMF facility will enable research that is currently not achievable anywhere in the world.
