Watson Engineering Community Students Go to CLASSE

On Tuesday, September 20, 2016 Binghamton University Engineering Community first-year students visited the Wilson and Newman laboratories at Cornell University. 

The Wilson laboratory is home to the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS).CHESS is a high energy x-ray source that provides users state-of-the-art synchrotron radiation facilities for research in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Environmental and Materials Sciences. 

The Newman laboratory is home to the Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) group and the Laboratory for Elementary Particle Physics (LEPP). 

The SRF group is designing, fabricating, and testing the next generation SRF cavities that will be used in Cornell's Energy Recovery Linear Accelerator (ERL), Project-X at Fermilab, the Next Generation Light Source, and elsewhere. 

LEPP studies nature's fundamental particles and the laws that govern them.  Both groups merged and are now known as the Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based ScienceS and Education (CLASSE). CLASSE develops and operates facilities and provides opportunities for the study of accelerators, particle beams and physics, photon science, and the early universe. It serves K-12 and university students, the public, and scientists from Cornell and elsewhere.

The fifty visiting engineering community students, faculty, and staff got an eye-opening look at some state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in high energy x-ray research and an appreciation for the engineering that goes into making it all work.  The visitors were divided into four groups and given tours of both facilities by Cornell graduate students, faculty, and staff.  The tours touched on all the engineering disciplines offered here in the Watson school: Electrical, Computer, and Mechanical Engineering in the design of sophisticated particle beam generation and acceleration equipment and the beam storage ring, cooled to a few degrees above absolute zero; System Science and Industrial Engineering in the project planning and execution of the development of new research equipment; and Bioengineering, as shown with the equipment used to determine the structure of complex proteins with the particle beam.

CLASSE is funded by the National Science Foundation. The Watson Engineering Community wishes to thank CLASSE and its enthusiastic graduate students, faculty, and staff for hosting a delightful and inspiring tour of the Newman and Wilson laboratories.
