Carnegie Trustees Visit HPCAT


Carnegie’s trustees and officers came to visit HPCAT on November 17, 2016.  The day included presentations from Argonne’s director, Peter Littlewood, HPCAT’s Executive Director, Viktor Struzhkin, HPCAT’s Director, Guoyin Shen, and Carnegie Staff Scientist and HPCAT Founder, Ho-Kwang Mao about APS and HPCAT’s unique capabilities and recent scientific results.  More than 35 participants enjoyed a facility tour by APS Deputy Directors, Dennis Mills and George Srajer and an interactive tour of HPCAT.

The team gained a more complete understanding of high-pressure science, operations at HPCAT, integrating high pressure with synchrotron x-rays, and the facility’s future upgrade plans.
