    1.  NSF SITE VISIT COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS RENEWAL

    A NSF site visit committee was at the SRC May 16-18 to review the SRC and make recommendations for the next 5-year renewal period of NSF funding. In its report the committee strongly endorses a renewal of the SRC funding, summarizing its findings as follows: "In summary, the committee believes that the SRC should continue to be funded, and at the requested increased funding levels, in order to continue to fulfill its role as a critical resource for both the Midwest and the U.S. as a whole in the area of UV/VUV synchrotron radiation." The NSF will make its decision in late September. The SRC would like to thank all the Users and staff members who have helped making the site visit a success.


    2. NEW U2 UNDULATOR IS ON ITS WAY

    The new U2 undulator was shipped by Danfysik on July 12 and has just cleared US customs. It will be tested at the SRC and is scheduled for installation in Nov/Dec this year. This instrument will produce undulator radiation over a wide range of photon energies from 7.8 eV to >300 eV. The lowest energy will be used for lithography research related to the 157 nm ArF laser line. The range from 8-30 eV will serve as an intense source with high spectral purity for spectroscopy of valence electrons, e.g., spin- polarized photoemission of quantum well states. Energies near 92 eV will be used for EUV lithography and interferometric nanolithography. The higher part of the spectral range up to the carbon K edge will be used for high-resolution spectroscopy and microscopy of organic and biological materials. Spectral output curves can be found here.  A picture of the undulator will be posted at the SRC Web page (see News).


    3. ALADDIN LAMP AWARD NOMINATIONS SOLICITED

    Nominations for the Aladdin Lamp Award are being solicitated. The award recognizes excellence in synchrotron radiation research performed at the SRC as part of an educational program. There is no restriction on the level of the degree at this time. The winner will be announced at the SRC Users Meeting (Friday Oct. 27). For details of the application consult the SRC Web page at http://www.src.wisc.edu/news/Aladdin_Award/announcement.html Deadline is August 31.
