Remote experiments at GSECARS!

That’s our diamond anvil cell, right there!

We’re running our first remote experiments at Argonne today from our homes! Thanks to Mingda Lv, who prepared the DACs in our lab at MSU under approved quarantine safety procedures and mailed them to Argonne. Thanks to Stella Chariton, on-site beamline scientist handling all the physical tasks and coaching us through everything! And of course the rest of GSECARS, particularly Vitali Prakapenka, for getting remote operations working. Mingda can operate the equipment from his desk at his place, and I from my “standing desk” (bedroom bureau).
