  1. Brookhaven Lecture

    "506th Brookhaven Lecture: ''NSLS-II: The New Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven Lab'"

    Presented by Ferdinand Willeke, National Synchrotron Light Source II

    Wednesday, June 24, 2015, 4 pm
    Berkner Hall Auditorium

    Hosted by: Thomas Watson

  2. C-AD Accelerator Physics Seminar

    "A Robinson Wiggler for Lifetime and Brilliant Improvement at the Metrology Light Source"

    Presented by Tobias Goetsch, Helmholtz-Zentrum, Germany

    Thursday, May 14, 2015, 4 pm
    Large Conf. Rm. Bldg. 911B, Rm. A202

    Hosted by: Wolfram Fischer

    "The beam lifetime in electron storage rings concerns machines running in decay mode as well as machines doing top-up. A standard procedure to increase the lifetime is via bunch lengthening as the lifetime depends on the electron density in the bunch. Bunch lengthening is typically achieved with higher harmonic (Landau) cavities. There are several advantages in using a different approach: it is possible to increase the bunch length by installing a transverse gradient (Robinson) Wiggler, which allows to transfer damping between the horizontal and the longitudinal plane. While increasing the bunch length, the horizontal emittance is being reduced yielding advantages regarding the source size depending on the magnet optics. At the Metrology Light Source, a primary source standard used by Germanys national metrology institute (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt), such a scheme is being investigated. The prospects are higher brilliance for the important beamlines together with a lifetime improvement in the order of 100 %."

  3. NSLS-ll Town Meeting

  4. Brookhaven Lecture

    "501st Brookhaven Lecture: Negative Particles for Positive Breakthroughs: Characterizing Electrons in Novel Materials at NSLS-II"

    Presented by Ignace Jarrige, Photon Sciences Directorate

    Wednesday, January 21, 2015, 4 pm
    Berkner Hall Auditorium

    Hosted by: Thomas Watson

    During the 501st Brookhaven Lecture, Ignace Jarrige will discuss different ways electrons behave and affect unique materials' properties. He will then explain how the new Soft Inelastic X-ray Scattering (SIX) beamline—an extra-long beamline he is developing at NSLS-II—will measure how x-rays excite atomic bonds in new materials researchers are inventing around the world. Jarrige and his collaborators will use this new tool to unravel mysteries of electrons' collective behavior with unprecedented accuracy as they witness emerging phenomena such as superconductivity—the ability to conduct electricity with zero resistance—magnetism, and other phenomena that could lead to faster trains, more powerful computer processors, and far more efficient electrical grids.

  9. National Synchrotron Light Source Seminar

    "New dimensions in phase contrast X-ray imaging: faster and clinically relevant"

    Presented by Marco Stampanoni, Institute for Biomedical Engineering of the ETH and University of Z├╝richand Head of the X-ray Tomography group of the Swiss Light Source at the Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland

    Tuesday, July 8, 2014, 11 am
    Bldg. 744, room 156

    Hosted by: Jun Wang

    High brightness is a fundamental property of third generation synchrotron facilities. Those deliver coherent beams, which intrinsically provide access to the phase information from a sample. The Swiss Light Source operates TOMCAT, a beamline dedicated to TOmographic Microscopy and Coherent rAdiology experimenTs. Our group develops cutting-edge equipment for non-destructive tomographic investigations and provides the necessary instrumentation for phase contrast imaging at spatial resolution ranging over four orders of magnitude as well as the acquisition of 3D volumes within a fraction of a second. This presentation will illustrate how phase contrast imaging can be implemented with applications in human radiology down to nanotomographic imaging of single cells. A brief review of the most advanced phase contrast imaging techniques will be provided, with particular emphasis on full-field Zernike microscopy, free-space propagation and grating-interferometry. Each of these methods has shown to be particularly suited for selected investigations. Applications criteria as well as limitations for each technique will be presented, with the illustrative support of examples taken from daily experiments carried out at modern, third generation synchrotron facilities. Particular emphasis will be devoted to applications involving the investigation of life sciences relevant material like cells (organelles identification), soft tissue biopsies (tumor visualization, Alzheimer plaques detection), bones (canaliculi detection and statistical nano-morphometry), insects (biomechanics of tethered flight) and breast tissue (early cancer detection
