Issue No. 33
From the Director
CHESS's busy summer continues, although August has (gratefully) not been quite as frenetic as June and July. The CHESS staff, the Users' Executive Committee (UEC), the External Advisory Committee (EAC), the co-organizers of our Science Workshops, and some Cornell faculty members have been hard at work synthesizing the results of the workshops into a Science Case for a high-energy, high-flux 3rd generation synchrotron. At the same time, the laboratory has been carefully and steadily removing the CLEO detector piece by (30 ton) piece. Removing CLEO and then reassembling and restarting CESR are the major goals for this summer's down period and the first step in the CHESS-U upgrade project.
This issue of the CHESS eNews highlights three of the science workshops (the other three were highlighted in last month's issue), two beautiful in situ time-resolved x-ray studies of photo assisted water splitting, the membrane formation process in block co-polymer films, and a glimpse into the impact CHESS's summer students have on children in the local community. Please enjoy!
