Latest Synchrotron light source Stories
Ultra-short X-ray beams produced at the University of Michigan could one day serve as more sensitive medical diagnostic tools, and they could work like strobe lights to allow researchers to observe chemical reactions that happen in quadrillionths of a second.
Producing tightly focused beams of high energy X-rays, to examine everything from molecular structures to the integrity of aircraft wings, could become simpler and cheaper according to new research.
Scientists for the first time have dived into the effect that an intense X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) has on materials.
Scientists leverage special relativity to speed up computational modeling and open a new era for designing advanced laser-plasma accelerators.
Science and technology are becoming increasingly involved in the world of art.
Researchers say a new facility opening later this year at Britain's Diamond Light Source synchrotron may revolutionize science. Officials said the powerful new experimental station called the Joint Engineering, Environmental and Processing beamline will carry out experiments in a variety of scientific areas, including biology and physical and chemical science. The versatility of JEEP will open up exciting new opportunities in many fields of science due to its extremely high flux, high energy...
An international team of researchers including scientists at the Carnegie Institution has discovered a new chemical compound that consists of a single elementâ€•boron.
Using two simultaneous light-based probing techniques at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, a team of researchers has illuminated important details about a class of enzymes involved in everything from photosynthesis to the regulation of biological clocks.
