National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II)

2016 PMI Project of the Year Award Winner - National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II)

This project resulted in the creation of the world's most powerful photon microscope. The microscope creates X-rays that allow scientists to see how materials in systems—such as batteries or fuel cells— behave at the nano-level while operating in real-world conditions. By the time the project was completed in March 2015, it was six months ahead of schedule and under budget.
