SRI 2001 HIGHLIGHTS
SRC hosted the 2001 Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation conference.
It was preceded by a workshop on Energy Recovery Linacs (ERL) and
followed by a workshop on Beam Stability Issues. Attendance at the
main conference was 211 from 14 countries.
key words for this conference were fast (femtosecond time resolution)
and small (nanometer source images). The most prominent scientific
areas were biology and magnetic properties. The conference emphasized
the use of synchrotron radiation in science and technology, representing
a continuing trend from pure instrumentation to potential applications.

USERS MEETING REPORT
annual SRC Users Meeting on Oct. 12/13 featured talks on a wide
variety of topics, ranging from exotic electrons in solids that
violate time reversal symmetry to the oldest rocks on Earth. The
Aladdin Lamp Award went to Tim Kidd (see item 5), the Best Poster
Award to Christian Ast for his work with Hartmut Hochst on the Fermi
Surface of Bismuth (111), which made it onto the cover of Phys.
Rev. Letters (Vol. 87, p. 177602, 2001). A booklet with details
is posted at the SRC web site: http://www.src.wisc.edu/usermeeting/book_of_abstracts.html

CHANGES IN THE SRC TEAM
Bisognano is the new Executive Director of the SRC, succeeding Jim
Taylor, who retired on July 1, 2001. Joe came to the SRC in 1999
as Associate Director for Accelerator Development after heading
the Beam Physics and Instrumentation Department at Jefferson Lab.
Trzeciak, long-time leader of the accelerator group at the SRC retired
on August 1, 2001. His successor is Ken Jacobs, who was head of
the Accelerator Division of the Bates Lab. at MIT.
Neumann joined the SRC on August 1, 2001 as new Safety Manager.
He gives the safety instruction to new users and can be contacted
at email@example.com .
Legg is the new leader of the Operations Group since July 2001.
He is an electrical engineer with many years experience in accelerators.
He is the main interface for questions on the performance of Aladdin
and can be reached at 608-877-2162.
Altmann joined the SRC as postdoc in April 2001. He supports users
of various end stations, such as the Scienta 200 spectrometer, the
magnetic growth chamber, the MCD chamber, and the absorption chamber.
He knows these instruments well from his thesis work.

CONGRATULATIONS TO SRC RESEARCHERS
Kidd (Univ. Illinois Urbana-Champaign) received the 2001 Aladdin
Lamp Award of the SRC. It recognizes excellence in synchrotron radiation
research performed at the SRC as part of an educational program.
In his thesis with Prof. T.-C. Chiang he worked on charge density
waves. These are phenomena that become pronounced in the two-dimensional
world of a surface.
