Latest Advanced Photon Source Stories
Scientists broke new ground in the study of deep earthquakes, a poorly understood phenomenon that occurs where the oceanic lithosphere, driven by tectonics, plunges under continental plates – examples are off the coasts of the western United States, Russia and Japan.
An international team of scientists using a new X-ray method recorded the internal structure and cell movement inside a living frog embryo in greater detail than ever before.
INDIANAPOLIS, July 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) and the U.S.
It is important that the United States begin to live within its means and address the federal deficit.
Nitric oxide is a toxic pollutant, but the human body also creates it and uses it to attack invading microbes and parasites.
A collaboration between the Advanced Photon Source and Center for Nanoscale Materials at US Department of Energyâ€™s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has "seen" the crystallization of nanoparticles in unprecedented detail.
The future of high-intensity x-ray science has never been brighter now that scientists at U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory have devised a new type of next generation light sources.
They may never win an Oscar, but scientists at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have developed techniques for creating accurate movies of biological and chemical molecules, a feat only theorized up until now.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have developed a technique to peer through high-speed dense liquids using high-energy X-rays from Argonne's Advanced Photon Source (APS).
X-rays have been used for decades to take pictures of broken bones, but scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory and their collaborators have developed a lensless X-ray technique that can take images of ultra-small structures buried in nanoparticles and nanomaterials, and features within whole biological cells such as cellular nuclei.
