Their experiment “Comparative Chemical Analysis of Soil Contamination Using Hyperaccumulators” was run at 13 IDE with GSE beamline scientists Tony Lanzirotti and Matt Newville as hosts.
Virtual Tutorial on Crystal Truncation Rod Diffraction for Atomic-Scale Surface Structure Measurement
March 31, 2021: GeoSoilEnviroCARS, the University of Chicago, at the Advanced Photon Source invites you to attend a half-day online workshop.
Dr Stella Chariton, GSECARS, to host high pressure interest group: “Solving crystal structures from complex multigrain, multi-phase samples at extreme conditions”. Monday, Jan 25th, 2-3pm (CST)
Presentations will be given in virtual meeting format on the afternoons of Jan 18 and 19, 2021.
Congratulations to Mark Rivers for being elected as a Fellow of the Mineralogical Society of America!
The GSECARS 13 ID-D DAC program successfully ran 140 mail-in DACs and 10 ambient samples. They received (and returned!) 36 boxes of DAC samples. Users report that running experiments remotely with mail-in samples resulted in excellent data and was deemed a great success!
Dr. Mark Rivers at GSECARS hosts a virtual hands-on tutorial sessions on synchrotron computed microtomography.
Christofanis will be working on software development for the Diamond Anvil Cell program.
Sector 13 LVP users have successfully completed their most recent experiments remotely. They were able to mail in their samples, and with the help of remote access software, and GSECARS staff, run their experiments.
CNN, CNET and APS highlight work done at 13 IDD by Dan Shim’s Lab for Earth and Planetary Materials at Arizona State University and scientists from the University of Chicago on how the interiors of carbon-rich exoplanets could create diamonds through high pressure and temperature conditions.
