Experiments at CHESS, the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source

In the mid 2000s the group did a series of high pressure diffraction and x-ray absorption measurements at the CHESS synchrotron, which is located under the football field on the Cornell campus in Ithaca, NY. Many of these measurements beneffited from the expertise of William Bassett, a well known expert on diamond anvil cells (DACs) and high pressure science. The synchroton was not always as reliable as we would have liked and this provided some oportunities to see some of the area around Ithaca.
