EMSL User Facility Promotes Remote Access to Instrumentation
On October 1, 1998, the William R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL), DOE's newest National Scientific User Facility, celebrated the first anniversary of its opening in Richland, Washington. The mission of a user facility is to provide unique research resources to scientists from DOE and government laboratories, universities, and industry. Operated by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, EMSL's goals are to (1) attain a molecular-level understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological processes needed to solve DOE's most critical environmental problems and (2) advance molecular science in support of DOE's long-term environmental missions.
EMSL is recognized as a leader in using collaboratories to facilitate the remote use of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and mass spectrometry [see Analytical Chemistry (November 1, 1998)]. Through the Internet, EMSL is making these very expensive, cutting-edge technologies available to researchers and students who might otherwise find the instruments difficult or impossible to access.
During the last year, researchers from several universities and a national laboratory have saved considerable time and money by using VNMRF to participate in experiments remotely and to virtually extend or enhance visits to the facility. NMR spectrometry users desiring to run all or part of their experiments remotely can get started by simply noting their plans in their applications to EMSL.
