Researchers in the Advanced Photon Source X-ray Science division (XSD) were looking for a specific gas cylinder regulator for an upcoming experiment involving pressurized flammable gases. They sent out a facility-wide request, and beamline scientist Andrey Yakovenko (XSD) responded that he had the correct part. However, instead of simply handing over the part, Yakovenko asked … Read More
The goal of replenishing and strengthening the management team of the Argonne X-ray Science division (XSD) in the Advanced Photon Source (APS) has been achieved with the appointment of Dean Haeffner as associate division director for Beamline Development, and Alec Sandy as associate division director for Beamline Technologies. Haeffner and Sandy join Stefan Vogt, the … Read More »

In June 2018, Kamila Wiaderek (XSD) received a Gold Spot Award for her “activity cards” design to keep electrochemistry laboratories safe.
Because the electrochemistry laboratories are often simultaneously occupied by several groups from different beamlines, Wiaderek created the activity cards system to make tracking laboratory activity convenient. The cards’ required fields are: primary and secondary … Read More »
