Smiley Users are Back On-Site

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!
