ALS Controls Upgrade: Meeting the Needs of a Growing Facility Print

Users may never notice it, but a major controls and instrumentation upgrade is underway at the ALS. Over the next four years, the controls system that runs all aspects of the synchrotron, from injection to magnets, will be decentralized and its instrumentation replaced. These improvements will coordinate with recent software upgrades to improve efficiency, beam stability, and “disaster scenario” control.

Optical Metrology Lab Receives New Funding for Upgrades Print

The Optical Metrology Lab (OML) at the ALS is renowned for its precision and technical expertise in metrology of x-ray optics. It has achieved this notoriety with only two full-time staff members and extremely limited laboratory facilities. Now, with new funding from the DOE that provides $1.2M to build a new clean room laboratory with environmental controls, and the promise of $1.4M to upgrade and replace outdated instrumentation, the OML will be able to achieve an even higher level of excellence.

Solving Structures with Collaborative Crystallography Print

The Berkeley Center for Structural Biology’s Collaborative Crystallography (CC) program is making major advancements in solving protein structures, especially for users involved in high-throughput projects. The CC program is an NIH-funded, peer-reviewed service that allows external users to apply for both beam time and the support of a crystallographer to perform experiments and subsequent data analyses.
