To bridge the gap between design and materials through X-rays.

Why Choose InSitμ?

The team at InSitµ provides enhanced support for a new generation of industrial users, strengthening your experience during the experiment and simulation.

We are material modelers. We work with mechanical civil, and structural engineers to create mathematical modeling, build a computational prototype, and then validate that modeling design to measure, understand and account for stress.

Capabilities of InSitμ

  1. The white beam capability of the Cornell compact undulator insertion device enables detailed mapping of stress gradients at an engineering sized scale. Bring us a section of
  2. Monochromatic experiments with software infrastructure to map deformation response at micro and meso scale.
  3. Detectors- mmpad CAD teluriden - offers capability to look at dynamic response of materials insitu - modified by by Sol for high energy of CHESS-U.
