Starting this run, we are sending scheduling emails from a central address: firstname.lastname@example.org Please feel free to send emails to that address if you need to request time as well. We are letting everyone know of this change, because it seems to be going to SPAM for some people, or getting overlooked since it’s not expected.
If you have any needs for this run, please feel free to reach out to email@example.com
Sometimes, a dewar arrives warm and without any visible or noticeable breaks in any of the common breakpoints, such as the neck. In these situations, it is possible that the vacuum has been lost on the dewar over time, preventing it from holding temperature. NE-CAT can check the integrity of the vacuum by pumping down the dewar, then, while the dewar is under vacuum, Ed Lynch flows helium gas over the outside of the vacuum vessel, especially at the seams.
At the Plenary Session for the APS/CNM User Meeting, it was announced that the storage ring installation period of the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade project is now scheduled to begin April 17, 2023. NE-CAT and the APS will be 'dark' for 1 year following this date.
Zoom-based office hours to answer questions regarding using NE-CAT, data processing, structure solution or anything else x-ray crystallography-related available weekly.
Thursday, 1:00 - 3:00 PM Central Time
