    May/June/July 1999


    Joseph Bisognano is going to join the SRC on Oct. 1 as the   Associate Director for Accelerator Technology, succeeding Ed Rowe. He received degrees in physics from Harvard and Berkeley, became Staff Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and moved to the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, where he was head of the Beam Physics and Instrumentation Department in the Accelerator Division. He also holds Adjunct Professorships in Physics and Applied Science at the College of William and Mary. The Physics Department at UW-Madison has voted a similar adjunct appointment here. Joe will be part-time at the SRC starting July 26 and full-time in October. Welcome to the SRC !


    Application are solicited for the Aladdin Lamp Award, which is given out annually for the best student thesis performed at the SRC. The 1999 award will be presented at the Users Meeting on Friday Oct. 8. The application should contain

    1. A brief letter of nomination from the applicant's advisor.

    2. An extended abstract (4 page maximum, including figures), written by the applicant.

    3. The applicant's curriculum vitae including publications and works in progress.

    4. Optional supporting material. For further information and for submittal of the nomination contact

    As announced separately, a second proposal submission date is Aug. 1, 1999. It provides another option for submitting beam time proposals in addition to the familiar spring date (Feb. 1). In order to reduce the load on PI's and reviewers, the duration of proposals can be for 6, 12, or 18 months. Users who prefer the current system will be able to continue with the previous 1 year cycle. A Word template of the Beamtime Request form can be obtained from the SRC Web.

    Submit proposals by Aug. 1, 1999 to

    Al Arko, long-time SRC User, has been appointed Fellow of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He was recognized for having pioneered an entirely new means for studying the electronic structure of plutonium, his development of the Laser Plasma Light Source, and his landmark achievements in the field of high-temperature superconductivity. Less than 2% of the entire technical staff at Los Alamos have become Fellows.

    Gelsomina "Pupa" De Stasio, who has been leading a very active spectromicroscopy program at the SRC (including last year's workshop on spectromicroscopy) has accepted a full professorship in the Physics Department at the UW-Madison. She is initiating her work here with the construction of a new microscope to take advantage of the spectral characteristics of the SRC.
