Issue No. 22


After an exciting summer filled with CHESS's first ever summer user operations, national and international meetings, summer student projects, and upgrades to both CESR and CHESS's x-ray beamlines, it is still a pleasure to see CESR literally begin to come back to life in preparation for the fall user run as I write. This issue of the CHESS eNewsletter contains items on some amazing user science ("supercrystallography" and self-seeding optics for the SwissFEL), summer student projects, outreach activities, information on the CHESS Users' Executive Committee, and the CHESS staff. Finally, congratulations to CHESS user Joshua Choi (University of Virginia) on winning a NASA early career award.
