Applicant: Cornell University, 123 Day Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853.

Instrument: KB Mirror System.

Manufacturer: Kohzu Precision Co., Ltd., Japan.

Intended Use: The instrument is intended to be used by a group of universities to study the molecular structure of macro-molecules of importance in the life sciences including proteins, viruses, enzymes and other related entities by the scattering of monoenergetic x-rays from single crystals of these materials utilizing the intense beams of x-rays provided by the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory to determine the molecular structure of these entities. The mirror system is needed to focus the intense x-ray beam onto sub-millimeter sized crystals.

Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: January 24, 2005.
