From EMSL: “A Series of New Videos for Users”




EMSL recently posted a collection of eight new videos on its YouTube channel and website to help users improve their research.

The short videos – around two minutes each – feature EMSL scientists describing how certain capabilities can advance users’ projects, particularly those relevant to DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research.

Featured scientists and capabilities include:

Amir Ahkami and Kim Hixson – Plant Sciences Laboratory
Mark Engelhard – X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer
Libor Kovarik – Environmental Transmission Electron Microscope
Scott Lea – Helium Ion Microscope
Malak Tfaily – 21 Tesla FTICR Mass Spectrometer
Tamas Varga – X-ray Computed Tomography
Zheming Wang – Sum-frequency Generation Vibrational Spectroscopy
Zihua Zhu – Time of Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry

Or check out all the videos under EMSL’s “Accelerate Your Research” YouTube playlist.

Welcome to EMSL. EMSL is a national scientific user facility that is funded and sponsored by DOE’s Office of Biological & Environmental Research. As a user facility, our scientific capabilities – people, instruments and facilities – are available for use by the global research community. We support BER’s mission to provide innovative solutions to the nation’s environmental and energy production challenges in areas such as atmospheric aerosols, feedstocks, global carbon cycling, biogeochemistry, subsurface science and energy materials.

A deep understanding of molecular-level processes is critical to gaining a predictive, systems-level understanding of the impacts of aerosols and terrestrial systems on climate change; making clean, affordable, abundant energy; and cleaning up our legacy wastes. Visit our Science page to learn how EMSL leads in these areas, through our Science Themes.

Team’s in Our DNA. We approach science differently than many institutions. We believe in – and have proven – the value of drawing together members of the scientific community and assembling the people, resources and facilities to solve problems. It’s in our DNA, since our founder Dr. Wiley’s initial call to create a user facility that would facilitate “synergism between the physical, mathematical, and life sciences.” We integrate experts across disciplines; experiment with theory; and our user program proposal calls with other user facilities.

We proudly provide an enriched, customized experience that allows users to connect with our people and capabilities in an environment where we focus on solving problems. We collaborate with researchers from academia, government labs and industry, and from nearly all 50 states and from other countries.
