Deep into winter and a user run here in Ithaca! I should point out that we're also deep into planning for the spring and summer, and early March holds deadlines for BTRs, user progress reports, and the annual $1,000 student paper prize nominations. A workshop to explore x-ray pulses and bunch timing is being organized for March 9th; I keep promising an agenda and speakers list, but that list has not been finalized yet. You should hear soon, but save the date if you want to attend in person or via remote streaming. See the website from the CHESS home page for Timing Workshop
. You might also want to mark your calendars for the Users' Meeting June 6 and 7, when in addition to big league presentations by management, you can learn about actual science in workshops on "Serial protein crystallography" and "New methods in structural materials."
And don't miss some excellent articles below on imaging and technology development of high-energy-sensitive photon detectors and the CHESS-U magnets.
