Min Li surveys the newest arrival at the West Campus Materials Characterization Core: the Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope - or the FIB SEM Helios G4 UX, to those in the know… . An electron microscope uses a beam of accelerated electrons as a source of illumination to reach a higher resolving power than light microscopes, revealing the structure of smaller objects. Such microscopes can achieve magnifications of up to around 10,000,000x whereas most light microscopes are limited by diffraction to about 2000x. . Chris Incarvito, Director of Research Operations and Technology at Yale’s West Campus, sums up the value of the latest tech arrival: “The power of the new FIB SEM lies in being able to view a surface, identify key topological features, probe its elemental composition, and then quickly mill away a nanoscopic layer of material and repeat the process with extraordinary speed. Areas of interest can then be physically extracted for further examination.” . The sophisticated technology is enabling scientists at the Energy Sciences Institute and across Yale to characterize the functionality of new materials for future energy production and storage. . #materials #science @yale #yalewestcampus #yale #thermofisherscientific @thermofisherscientific #energy #energyscience #technology #tech #research #laboratory #researchops #electron #microscope #fibsem #beam #campus #campuslife #microscopy

Bring on 2019! . Even by New England standards, the 2018 summer/fall seasons were unusually soggy, but the crews are working tirelessly to complete the redesigned West Campus “quad” for everyone to enjoy next spring. We can’t wait for the 2019 growing season to unveil the reimagined space, with new curved walkways, staircases and fantastic new outdoor gathering places! . #yalewestcampus #yalequad #yale @yale @yalenursing #outdoors #inspiring #landscapedesign #landscape #outdoordesign #outdoorlife #campus #campuslife #newengland #connecticut #weather #isitspringyet
Importance of microbes has scientists in retreat! . The first gathering of scholars from Yale’s Microbial Sciences Institute (MSI) took place December 5th, bringing together over 70 faculty, postdocs, students, and staff for a day of science and networking at the Greenberg Center in New Haven. . The Institute is dedicated to exploring the vast world of microbes and how they govern processes that control the functions of all living creatures. . Opening the event, Christine Jacobs-Wagner, William H. Fleming, M.D. Professor and the MSI Director, looked back to the earliest days of Yale’s West Campus. Since its inception in 2009, the Institute has grown to include faculty from a broad scope of disciplines at Yale, including Microbial Pathogenesis, Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, Chemistry, Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. . Highlighting a growing need for science in the public domain, the keynote address was given by award-winning New York Times columnist and professor adjunct at Yale, Carl Zimmer. . Throughout the day faculty from across the MSI labs presented quick-fire lightning talks featuring the latest science in the field: from host-microbe dynamics, how bacteria interact with their environment, the function of free-living organisms, microbe community evolution, and mechanisms involved in bacterial cell replication. The unifying goal of the Institute is to gain a better understanding of the microbial world and its impact on the environment and human health. . @yale #yale #microbial #microbes #biology #microbiome #science @cwzimmer #yalewestcampus @yaleschoolofmed #microbiology #bacteria #ecology #health
Yale scientists make borophene breakthrough. . The thinnest flake of borophene, just one atom thick, has provided scientists at Yale’s Energy Sciences Institute and the Brookhaven National Laboratory with new insight into a promising material for the next generation of high-speed electronics and a host of practical applications. Published Dec. 3 in Nature Nanotechnology, Adrian Gozar and colleagues have taken the next step in modifying the structure of borophene by growing large, device-size crystals up to 100 square micrometers in size on copper surfaces.

Here at #yaleipch , we are interested in the way photographs age. Broadly, there are two kinds of aging: (1) inorganic, the loss in density of image silver; and (2) organic, the gradual yellowing of the photo paper or albumen binder. Sometimes these two aging processes occur together, sometimes they don’t. Let’s illustrate with examples from the @yalebritishart collection of cartes de visite, currently under study by our Lens Media Lab! In the first pair of photos, we see both aging processes on the left, and neither on the right. In the second pair, however, we see these processes come apart: a faded print, not yellowing; and a badly yellowed print that has retained its contrast. The Lens Media Lab is using machine vision methods to analyze these distinct aging processes across a large collection of these photograph cards. #lensmediamondays #photoconservation #yalewestcampus #cartedevisite #yalecenterforbritishart

A Friday look through the window of the IPCH Conservation Lab and another large object is on the move. . The team of conservators from Yale University Art Gallery and Yale Center for British Art take great care to reposition a 12’ oil on canvas painting onto a new temporary platform for further treatment. The Yale Art Gallery work, Cartoon for The Hours, House of Representatives Chamber, Pennsylvania State Capitol, Harrisburg, by Edwin Austin Abbey, American, 1852–1911, M.A. (Hon.) 1897, is being prepared for an exhibition in 2020. . The open plan Conservation Lab at the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage opened in 2015 following extensive renovation, including the addition of large bay windows along its length to enable passersby to observe the conservators at work. . #museums #art #artconservation @yalebritishart @yaleartgallery @yale #edwinaustinabbey #oiloncanvas #painting #pennsylvania #culturalheritage #greatcolleagues #open #accessible #fridayworkout #yalewestcampus @yaleipch
After several years of research work in the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage at Yale University, Dr. Łukasz Bratasz (left) wins the first place among 22 successful candidates of the ‘Polish Returns’ programme coordinated by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA). The first edition of the programme attracted 108 applications. The laureate specializes in the scientific investigation of cultural heritage objects, an interdisciplinary research field answering questions formulated by art historians and conservators, in their essence from the area of humanities. The aim of the project worth 0.6 M$ is to develop physical model of pictorial layers of paintings, to elucidate mechanism of crack formation in the layers as well as better exploitation of the heritage science potential by Polish museums. The project will strengthen the position of Institute’s heritage science group in the international research network. On November 14, Łukasz Bratasz participated in the press conference - during which the outcome of the programme was announced – in which Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Science and Higher Education Jarosław Gowin participated together with NAWA’s director Łukasz Wojdyga. #yaleipch #culturalheritage #scienceandart #conservationscience #yalewestcampus #research #sciencefriday #yale #research #science @yalewestcampus @yale

Throw back to our Founders Day experiment! Work is progressing on the West Campus landscape improvement project. While our central "quad" area remains dominated by giant dirt piles, the project is moving along well and we are starting to see exciting signs of progress. Foundations are rising in what will become an improved Conference Center terrace, and concrete forms now outline the area where extended seating and community gathering space will be. Construction of the connecting walkway along West Campus Drive nears completion, and will allow safe passage to the Cleanroom facility and warehouse, and generally provide a safer route for pedestrians and visitors to access more of our campus buildings. While not yet fully visible, a new water retention basin will provide a passive rainwater management system and a more sustainable approach to rainwater run-off. . #Yale @yale #yalewestcampus #landscapedesign #greenspace #improvements #gathering #outdoors #grass #grasscanons #progress #construction #conferencecenter #terrace #community #walkway #sustainability

It’s #talbottuesday again! Here you see salt prints (H.F Talbot’s invention) in action. Salt prints are a printing out process, so you can see the image develop in the sun. On a sunny day, you can get a satisfactory print in less than five minutes! Salt prints can vary in tone and color as you see in the next image. On the left, you see a paper negative made using the same process. These images were printed from transparencies of a photograph taken by @jon_atherton #saltprints #yale #yalewestcampus @yalewestcampus #yaleipch #artconservation
