How Light Changes Matter Measured By Synchronized Lasers
2012-08-29 14:06:05

Berkeley Lab scientists and their colleagues have successfully probed the effects of light at the atomic scale by mixing x-ray and optical light waves at the Linac Coherent Light Source Light changes matter in ways that shape our world. Photons trigger changes in proteins in the eye to enable vision; sunlight splits water into hydrogen and oxygen and creates chemicals through photosynthesis; light causes electrons to flow in the semiconductors that make up solar cells; and new devices for...

To Shed Light On Biological Processes, Tiny Molecules That Glow In Water Were Designed
2012-08-16 08:44:39

University of Miami researchers are creating fluorescent molecules that can be turned on and off in aqueous environments to visualize activity within cells University of Miami scientists have developed a way to switch fluorescent molecules on and off within aqueous environments, by strategically trapping the molecules inside water-soluble particles and controlling them with ultraviolet light. The new system can be used to develop better fluorescent probes for biomedical research....

Listening To The Sounds Of Dangerous Chemicals
2012-08-14 14:00:20

New photoacoustic technique detects multiple nerve agents simultaneously To warn of chemical attacks and help save lives, it's vital to quickly determine if even trace levels of potentially deadly chemicals–such as the nerve gas sarin and other odorless, colorless agents–are present. U.S. Army researchers have developed a new chemical sensor that can simultaneously identify a potentially limitless numbers of agents, in real time. A paper describing the system has been published...

New Way to Track Formaldehyde Developed By NASA
2012-08-10 08:39:47

NASA scientist Tom Hanisco is helping to fill a big gap in scientists' understanding of how much urban pollution -- and more precisely formaldehyde -- ultimately winds up in Earth's upper atmosphere where it can wreak havoc on Earth's protective ozone layer. He and his team at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., have developed an automated, lightweight, laser-induced fluorescence device that measures the levels of this difficult-to-measure organic compound in the lower...
