Joint Photon Sciences Institute (JPSI)
JPSI was conceived as a focus for education and training of scientists wishing to capitalize on the unique capabilities of Brookhaven’s new National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II). JPSI serves as an intellectual center for development and application of the use of the powerful x-ray beams of NSLS-II by scientists of research institutions in New York State, with a prominent focus on the needs of the community of scientists at Stony Brook University.
The Director of JPSI holds a faculty position in a SBU department and a joint appointment at BNL in the Photon Science Directorate. The founding director is Professor John Parise, a renowned mineralogist and solid state chemist, and long-time user of x-ray beams at the NSLS at BNL and elsewhere. At BNL he interacts and collaborates closely with the Deputy Director of the Photon Science Directorate.
