The Consortium for Operando and Advanced Catalyst Characterization via Electronic Spectroscopy and Structure (Co-ACCESS) is a research program funded by the US Department of Energy, Basic Energy Sciences and is located at SSRL. Its aim is to provide resources and know-how to catalysis researchers who wish to conduct their research at SSRL and has a strong focus in in-situ/operando catalyst characterization. In this talk I will provide an overview of the goals, the capabilities, and the resulting impact that Co-ACESS has had at SSRL and on catalysis characterization. The central tenet of Co-ACCESS is that by conducting collaborative research everyone gains. Examples of the research that has been enabled will be discussed and future plans presented.
