CHESS – Beamline Cross Chamber
beamline upgrades are happening at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron
Source – CHESS. One of the first of these is the ID1A3 crossing
chamber, the first beamline at CHESS which will see x-rays that cross

necessitates a custom, one-off vacuum chamber that will allow for
monochromatic x-rays to pass through at a 27 degree angle. This
custom chamber was fabricated by our
Applied Vacuum Division.
