Latest Happenings at GSECARS
December 06 thru December 10, 2022
ANL Guest House Reopens, May 16, 2022. Reservations now being accepted.
GSE beamline scientist Joanne Stubbs met with middle school students from Holy Family Catholic Academy to teach them about synchrotron research at APS and to encourage the students to follow their interests and compete in the National Science Bowl.
Scientists from Carnegie Institution of Science developed a technique that predicts the ordered creation of strong, yet flexible, diamond nanothreads at 13 IDD and 16 IDB. The innovation will make it easier for scientists to synthesize nanothreads—an important step toward applying the material to practical problems in the future.
