Combining Scanning Probe Microscopy and Synchrotron Radiation (SXSPM)

Primary Contact: Volker Rose

The objective of this research is to develop a novel, high-resolution microscopy technique for imaging of nanoscale materials with chemical, electronic, and magnetic contrast

Optics (OPT)

Primary Contact: Lahsen Assoufid

The Optics group operates and develops instruments to fabricate and characterize x-ray optical elements, such as single crystal monochromators, mirrors, multilayers, and other special substrates.

Theory and Software (TAS)

Primary Contact: Michel van Veenendaal

Synchrotron-Related Theory provides a link between x-ray experiments and materials science and theory. Areas of expertise include x-ray spectroscopy, magnetism, spin transport and strongly-correlated materials. SRT is a joint program supported by Northern Illinois University and the APS.

Time-Resolved Research (TRR)

Primary Contact: Alec Sandy
Research Disciplines: Materials Science, Condensed Matter Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics

User Administration and Support (UAS)

Primary Contact: Susan White-DePace

User Administration and Support (APS User Office) provides direct and indirect administrative and support services to APS and CNM users. Direct services include registration, orientation/training/badging, developing and maintaining user information Web pages, writing and distributing electronic newsletters and other electronic communications, and administering scientific access systems (General and Partner User programs). Indirect services include workshop, conference, and meeting support, (especially for the annual Users Meeting, the quarterly APSUO Steering Committee and Partner Users Council meetings, the annual Scientific Advisory Committee meeting, and Sector Reviews), as well as outreach activities that promote the availability of beam time at the APS.
