FROM THE DIRECTOR
It was a pleasure to take an advanced look at the articles in this month's eNewsletter. From high tech applications such as time-resolved structural characterization of the lithiation mechanism in germanium nanowires for lithium ion batteries, and GISAXS studies demonstrating ordering of superlattices of small gold nanoparticles as temperature increases, to distinguished prizes to users for their work at CHESS and a new collaborative educational program aimed at integrating science content into engineering design activities, the accomplishments of CHESS users and staff are simply remarkable. I urge you to take a few moments to enjoy yourself and revel in their results.

LAB NOTES: April 2015
 

Planned construction for May 2015 through July 2015.  Sometime in May (weather dependent) construction will begin on the 5th floor parking lot area of Wilson Lab.  This will not affect the physical building of Wilson but will affect the entryway used by many on-campus users.  During construction, we have asked the crews to keep pathways cleared for users to continue to enter from the 5th floor, however, please use caution, especially during the evening hours and stay within the caution taped areas.  If you have any difficulties entering the building, please make the User Office or CHESS ops aware of problems so that we can work with construction crews to effectively solve them.
