X-RAY RUNS: Apply for Beamtime

2017  Nov 1 - Dec 21

2018  Feb 7 - Apr 3
2018  Proposal/BTR deadline: 12/1/17

Issue No. 25


The snow isn't flying (yet), but the Fall CHESS x-ray run has concluded and the CESR-TA program is currently performing their experimental program. In January, CHESS will be upgrading x-ray optics at G-line, installing an additional x-ray beam position monitor in C-line, and making changes to the magnetic lattice in the storage ring (installing an additional quadrupole magnet). The new quad is part of an effort both to enhance the performance of the undulators and to improve CESR operations (better injection efficiency and greater stability and reliability). CHESS user operations will resume, as scheduled in February.

I'd like to take this opportunity to encourage you to read the short article below on the science workshops CHESS is hosting in June 2016. These workshops are an exciting opportunity for the CHESS user community to explore future possibilities.
