Margaret Murnane and Ultraviolet Light Source

June 22, 2010
Margaret Murnane and Ultraviolet Light Source Researcher Margaret Murnane of JILA (a joint institute of the University of Colorado and the National Institute of Standards and Technology) and the extreme ultraviolet light source she developed with Henry Kapteyn. This laser-like beam of light at wavelengths from 10 to 100 times shorter than visible light will enable researchers to "see" tiny features and measure the fastest reactions in the microscopic world, with important applications in the development of ultrafast computers as well as nanoscale devices.
