Co-published by AIP Publishing and ACA, Structural Dynamics is a peer-reviewed, open access, online-only journal that highlights research articles on the structural determination and dynamics of chemical and biological systems and solid materials. Stop by our booth to learn more about our upcoming Special Topic Issues and incentives for ACA members.


American Institute of Physics           
Your ACA membership also comes with benefits from AIP, the American Institute of Physics.  AIP sends Physics Today magazine to ACA members, sponsors science policy fellowships for which ACA members can apply, and enables 100+ undergraduates to experience ACA student membership.


Amsterdam Scientific Instruments B.V. (ASI), aims to develop, build and deliver the best and most reliable detectors for electron/ion, X-ray imaging science community. Based on the Timepix1, Medipix3 and Timepix3 technologies, ASI offers hybrid pixelated detectors for a broad range of applications both for scientific and industrial users. For instance, the detector series Cheetah is very suitable for electron microscope applications such as Single Crystal Electron Diffraction. High sensitivity, high speed and large dynamic range allow the Cheetah to achieve unprecedented performance in electron diffraction, imaging and tomography. Similar to the Cheetah, our Lynx detector series are developed for X-ray detection, and have excellent performance in X-ray imaging and X ray diffraction applications. One of major advantages of the Lynx detector is the capability to discriminate energy of detected X-rays that allows us to even recognize different materials in X-ray images. For more information, please come and have a look at our booth# 106.

Authors publishing in IUCr Journals have always been assured of a superior publishing experience, and can feel proud to know that at the same time, they are helping to support our Outreach and Education efforts around the world. To find out more, in particular about open-access publishing, come and speak to the Editor-in-Chief and other members of the editorial team. Another way to help the IUCr to support the crystallographic community is to join our Associates Programme; one of the most popular benefits is a 50% discount on the price of print copies of International Tables for personal use. And pick up a reminder for the 25th IUCr Congress, which will be taking place in Prague, Czech Republic, in August 2020. 



Come to our booth and learn about the ALS scientific program and the outstanding capabilities of its beamlines. You will even have the opportunity to do a test-run on a beamline by remote access! Located above the UC Berkeley campus, the ALS is the destination for over five hundred structural biologists every year, with its world-class beamlines available for protein and chemical crystallography, SAXS on solution samples, and x-ray tomography of whole cells. In addition, chemists, geologists, and materials scientists have performed photo excited-state crystallography, high-pressure experiments mimicking down to the core-mantle boundary, and Laue micro diffraction exploring stress and strain. Many of the MX beamlines have undergone recent optics and endstation upgrades, producing higher flux and smaller spot sizes than ever before. Endstations include advanced features such as user-adjustable variable collimators, outstanding inline sample viewing, high speed detectors, highly automated sample mounting, stream-lined data collection and processing, and remote control capability. The beamline staff are known for their dedication to helping users and their friendly "can-do" attitude.

MacCHESS, Cornell University          
MacCHESS (Macromolecular X-ray science at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source) provides a facility where scientists can use both established and emerging technologies to pursue the goals of the biomedical research community. Work performed at MacCHESS, using tools including crystallography and small-angle X-ray scattering, yields important insights into fundamental biological processes, such as signaling across membranes, regulation of ion channels in neuronal function, enzyme catalysis, and gene expression. MacCHESS supports several beamlines, on either a full-time or part-time basis. These are generally configured for either macromolecular crystallography or biological small-angle scattering. F1 beamline, with its well-collimated monochromatic beam and Pilatus3 6M detector, is well suited for large complexes. Tuned above the selenium absorption edge, it can yield excellent SAD data when selenium is present. G1 is a high-flux multilayer BioSAXS station with rock solid beam stability, short exposures and high throughput. Data are automatically collected from two Pilatus detectors simultaneously (SAXS/WAXS), so that merged data cover a q range of 0.006 0.7 Å-1. In-lineSEC-SAXS-MALS-DLS has proven to be a powerful tool for resolving difficult aggregation and separation problems. G3 station has recently been the focus of development of serial microcrystallography, due to its extremely powerful beam which results from use of a multilayer monochromator followed by focusing.Users interested in protein crystallography and/or BioSAXS experiments may apply for time using the on-line CHESS application process.
