Latest Synchrotron radiation Stories
Using a compact but powerful laser, a research team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has developed a new way to generate synchrotron X-rays.
Astronomers studying the Vela pulsar wind nebula with ESA's INTEGRAL observatory have successfully resolved its morphology in the hard X-ray band, for the first time.
Astrophysicists have detected pulsed gamma-ray emissions from the Crab pulsar with energies that exceed 100 billion electron-volts (GeV). These gamma-ray pulses surpass what current theoretical models of pulsars can explain.
A breakthrough in understanding materials for next-generation electronic devices.
Researchers can now see objects more precisely and faster at the nanoscale due to utilising the full color spectrum of synchrotron light, opening the way for faster 3D nanoimaging.
Scientists from Finland and France have developed a new synchrotron X-ray technique that may revolutionize the chemical analysis of rare materials like meteoric rock samples or fossils.
ESAâ€™s Integral gamma-ray observatory has spotted extremely hot matter just a millisecond before it plunges into the oblivion of a black hole, but is it really doomed?
A new form of X-ray imaging technology and a nearly 100 million year old fossil have helped researchers gain a better understanding of how snakes lost their legs through evolution.
The Crab Nebula, one of our best-known and most stable neighbors in the winter sky, is shocking scientists with a propensity for fireworksâ€”gamma-ray flares set off by the most energetic particles ever traced to a specific astronomical object.
New PTB instrument measures the quality of the mirrors for the X-ray telescope IXO.
