From the Associate Director
Happy New Year to our loyal eNewsletter readers!
 
The hustle continues here at CHESS in January, using a short down of the storage ring for some maintenance and sprucing up the lab for the start of the next six months of x-ray running for users. Many of you have been contacted by Kathy Dedrick and our User Office asking you to help us assemble an annual report covering the great science that went on last year. In return for your efforts, you get to read below highlights of works in the press on solar cells, and also learn about new capabilities for very rapid fluorescence detection and probes for studying structural materials at F2. I've included a short follow-up from last month on the beamline conceptual review process for the CHESS-U project. And now I have to pledge that in the next week or so you will hear more about a workshop we're organizing in March to consider how flexible bunch and timing modes in the storage ring might serve your future research needs. And (again): calling all graduate students: the mailbox is now open for nominations for the 12th annual student research paper prize!
