NSLS-II: A Video Tour

Take a look at the beamlines that are coming online at Brookhaven's newest facility, the National Synchrotron Light Source II

This video, developed to showcase NSLS-II, was shown at the 2015 Materials Research Society Spring Meeting earlier this year.  Watch to see Brookhaven scientists discussing the impressive developments at the beamlines that will be first to host users this year: Eric Dooryhee at the X-ray Powder Diffraction (XPD) beamline, Stuart Wilkins at the Coherent Soft X-ray (CSX) beamline, Lisa Miller at the Submicron Resolution X-ray Spectroscopy (SRX) beamline, and Yong Chu at the Hard X-ray Nanoprobe (HXN) beamline. 

 “When NSLS-II is fully built out, we should have up to 60 beamlines. We will have the brightest synchrotron in the world,” said John Hill, director of NSLS-II, while talking about the exciting prospects to come at the facility. “We should have 4,000 users a year coming through here and they should be producing very high impact science. We really want them to transform their disciplines using experiments they’ve carried out here.”
