Berkeley National Lab. at beamline 12.2.2: “Nanocrystalline composites at extreme pressures “, 6 days of beamtime

Argonne National Lab., beamline 16-ID-B: two days of beamtime allocated by CDAC

***BEAMTIME IN 2009***

Argonne National Lab., at beamline 16-IDB: “High-pressure studies of NASICON type structures for Biofuel cells, one day of beamtime

Argonne National Lab., at beamline 16-BMD: “High-pressure studies of NASICON type structures for Biofuel cells, one day of beamtime

Berkeley National Lab. at beamline 12.2.2 Calypso: “Nanocrystalline composites at extreme pressures “, 6 days of beamtime,
