CHESS
FROM THE DIRECTOR
We were all delighted by NSF's announcement on April 21st that Cornell had been awarded a new 5-year cooperative agreement to operate CHESS. I'm extremely proud of the CHESS staff and users who put so much time and effort into the renewal. They did a superb job and we have developed many exciting plans for upgrades to CHESS, most significantly the transition to undulator operations. As always, CHESS will strive to collaborate with users on new and novel experiments, novel technology, and technique development.
