Coming Soon: Workshop on “Advances in Synchrotron-Based Research Towards Understanding the Structure, Evolution, and Dynamics of Earth and Planetary Interiors”
August 31 thru September 2, 2021
Yet another exciting run has come to an end for the DAC program at 13-IDD and 13-BMD. We were thrilled to work with all our users remotely and on-site and be part of their breathtaking experiments, pushing the pressure and temperature limits to over 160 DACs. We look forward to welcome all users back at GSECARS on the 2021-3 run!
GSECARS’ Matt Newville presented a tutorial “Larch for XAFS Analysis” for the XAFS2021 Virtual Conference, July 12, 2021.
Join the #webinar and get into minerals, phase transitions and dynamics occurring under extreme conditions.
Synchrotron Earth Sciences Presents – Synchrotrons and Geochemistry: A Workshop for Novices and Experts
The Steering Committee for Synchrotron Earth Sciences recently hosted a workshop which focused on applications of synchrotron science to geochemical research. This workshop targeted both those who are less familiar with synchrotron sources and experienced users who are eager to learn about and to discuss the next generation of synchrotron capabilities for geochemical research.
Research partly conducted at the Advanced Photon Source helped scientists discover the composition of Earth’s first atmosphere. What they found raises questions about the origin of life on Earth.
Congratulations to Dr. Mark Rivers and Dr. Stephen Sutton as the recipients of the 2021 APSUO Arthur H. Compton Award. The award recognizes a significant scientific or technical accomplishment at the Advanced Photon Source.
