Winter, thankfully, is going by quickly – we’ve even had a little warm, sunny weather in Ithaca… followed by another snow storm! The 2022-1 has just concluded and CHESS will be down for a few weeks of maintenance and machine studies. CHESS user operations will resume on April 6th.
We are busy preparing for the CHESS Users’ Meeting and workshops, to be held on June 7th & 8th. Please save the date and be on the lookout for an invitation to register for these events.
In this month’s newsletter we are highlighting materials research from our NSF-funded PIPOXS beamline, where researchers have discovered a class of nonprecious metal derivatives that can catalyze fuel cell reactions about as well as platinum, at a fraction of the cost.
There is so much to be excited about this research and other happenings at CHESS. We strive to keep our user community up-to-date with all that is happening. We encourage users to reach out to the Users Executive Committee with questions, comments and suggestions and, of course, feel free to contact us directly.
Thanks and Best Wishes,
