The Advanced Photon Source (APS) is undergoing a comprehensive upgrade to replace its original electron storage ring with a new, state-of-the-art accelerator. This will increase the brightness of APS X-ray beams by up to 500 times, and new beamlines will be constructed to take advantage of these improved capabilities. Check the APS-U website for updates.
SBC users will now have access to a new resource, eBERlight, that supports several X-ray-based tools for research in biological, environmental and geochemical sciences at the APS.
MX users who wish to continue with support from SBC staff are encouraged to apply through the new Universal Proposal System (UPS). The user office will be sending out call announcements on how to apply when resources become available.
