Helmholtz Association Laser processes observed with X-rays on a solid Without the currently available plethora of X-ray methods, basic research in the physical sciences would be unthinkable. The methods are used in solid state physics, in the analysis of biological structures, and even art historians have X-rays to thank for many new insights. Now, scientists at the Helmholtz Center Berlin (HZB) have identified yet another area of application. The team around Dr. Martin Beye and Prof....

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California at Berkeley have learned to control the quantum pathways determining how light scatters in graphene. Controlled scattering provides a new tool for the study of this unique material "“ graphene is a single sheet of carbon just one atom thick "“ and may point to practical applications for controlling light and electronic states in graphene nanodevices....

By Chalut, Kevin J Chen, Sulin; Finan, John D; Giacomelli, Michael G; Guilak, Farshid; Leong, Kam W; Wax, Adam ABSTRACT Accurate measurements of nuclear deformation, i.e., structural changes of the nucleus in response to environmental stimuli, are important for signal transduction studies. Traditionally, these measurements require labeling and imaging, and then nuclear measurement using image analysis. This approach is time- consuming, invasive, and unavoidably perturbs cellular systems....
