Scientists for the first time have dived into the effect that an intense X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) has on materials.
GRENOBLE, France, April 12, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- - Despite its Recent Discovery, one of the Best-Preserved Hominid Fossils has Already Been Analysed with Synchrotron Light Prof.
Despite its recent discovery in South Africa, one of the best-preserved hominid fossil ever discovered has already been analyzed with synchrotron light.
GRENOBLE, France, April 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- We are advised by European Synchrotron Radiation Facility that journalists and other readers should disregard the news release "First Studies of Fossil of new Human Ancestor Take Place at the European Synchrotron", issued earlier today over PR Newswire.
Science and technology are becoming increasingly involved in the world of art.
Integral has captured one of the brightest gamma-ray bursts ever seen. A meticulous analysis of the data has allowed astronomers to investigate the initial phases of this giant stellar explosion, which led to the ejection of matter at velocities close to the speed of light.
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...
A new facility opening later this year at the Diamond synchrotron is set to revolutionize world heritage science.
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.
Recent observations from NASA and Japanese X-ray observatories have helped clarify one of the long-standing mysteries in astronomy -- the origin of cosmic rays.
