2013-12-04 12:47:43

RIKEN A team working at the SACLA X-ray Free-Electron Laser (XFEL) in Japan has succeeded in generating ultra-bright, two-color X-ray laser pulses, for the first time in the hard X-ray region. These light pulses with different wavelengths, whose time separation can be adjusted with attosecond accuracy, are very powerful tools to investigate the structure of matter and the dynamics of ultrafast physical processes and chemical reactions. SACLA is one of only two facilities in the world to...

World's Sharpest X-ray Beam Shines At DESY
2013-09-30 11:42:20

Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY The world's sharpest X-ray beam shines at DESY. At the X-ray light source PETRA III, scientists from Göttingen generated a beam with a diameter of barely 5 nanometers – this is ten thousand times thinner than a human hair. This fine beam of X-ray light allows focusing on smallest details. The research groups of Professor Tim Salditt from the Institute of X-ray Physics and of Professor Hans-Ulrich Krebs from the Institute of Materials Physics of the...

Revolutionary Science, the manufacturer of the FDA approved Saniclave 200, weighs In on the dangers of using a non-FDA approved autoclave for human use. Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 16, 2013 Dental offices, medical clinics and even tattoo and nail salons are being required to use FDA cleared (approved) steam autoclaves, like the Tuttnauer Elara or the Saniclave 200 (retailing currently at about $999). Steam autoclaves such as these are highly regulated and have long been proven to be the...

It's not reruns of "The Jetsons", but researchers working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new microscopy technique that uses a process similar to how an old tube television produces a picture–cathodoluminescence–to image nanoscale features. Combining the best features of optical and scanning electron microscopy, the fast, versatile, and high-resolution technique allows scientists to view surface and subsurface features potentially as...


Word of the Day
out-herod
  • In the phrase to out-herod Herod, to be more violent than Herod (as represented in the old mystery plays); hence, to exceed in any excess of evil.
Herod refers to 'Herod the Great,' a Roman client king and 'a madman who murdered his own family and a great many rabbis.' According to the OED, the term is 'chiefly with allusion to Shakespeare's use' in Hamlet.
