From the Associate Director

Today is an especially sunny day in Ithaca so we're building confidence that there will be no snow on the ground for the May x-ray running period, BioSAXS workshop nor Users' Meeting and summer science workshops in June! And speaking of seasons - voting season that is - be sure to think about, nominate, and vote for members of the Users' Executive Committee. This committee brings your needs and concerns to CHESS management and helps with short and long-range planning. The astute reader can learn the science of membranes, nanocrystals, organic electronics and raman spectroscopy in the newsletter below, and we invite all those seeking practical x-ray technique experience to register for workshops on methods in BioSAXS and XRF Mapping coming up quickly in May. Register now to hold a spot.

Things are complicated for proteins embedded in a membrane. Sin Urban and coworkers continue to find surprises in how the intramembrane rhomboid proteases work... more »

The transformation of simple colloidal particles - bits of matter suspended in solution - into tightly packed, beautiful lace-like meshes, or superlattices, has puzzled researchers for decades... more »

X-ray Raman spectroscopy (XRS) is an inelastic scattering method that allows detection of low energy (<3keV) spectroscopic signatures using high-energy x-rays, typically by exciting core electrons of low-Z elements such as carbon and oxygen... more »

The paramount goal of organic electronics is to achieve high mobility in organic transistors within solution-based coating methods that can be scaled up to meet industrial production conditions... more »

This 1-day web-based workshop will combine a conceptual introduction to x-ray fluorescence (XRF) mapping with practical guides to obtaining high quality, quantitative results... more »

Dr. Matthias Liepe, Associate Professor of Physics, has accepted leadership of the Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) group. Dr. Georg Hoffstaetter, former head of the SRF group, will now become Cornell's Principal Investigator for C-BETA... more »
