Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online NASA announced on Tuesday the first analysis of Martian soil by the Chemistry and Mineralogy (CheMin) experiment on NASA's Curiosity rover. The soil sample taken during Curiosity's third scoop on October 15 revealed the presence of crystalline feldspar, pyroxenes and olivine mixed with some amorphous (non-crystalline) material. NASA said that the soil sample taken within Gale Crater resembles what could be found in volcanic...

A new advance in X-ray imaging has revealed the dramatic three-dimensional shape of gold nanocrystals, and is likely to shine a light on the structure of other nano-scale materials. Described today in Nature Communications, the new technique improves the quality of nanomaterial images, made using X-ray diffraction, by accurately correcting distortions in the X-ray light. Dr Jesse Clark, lead author of the study from the London Centre for Nanotechnology said: "With nanomaterials playing...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- The structure of biomolecules is of great interest for medicine and biology because their shape often determines their function. The use of new tools called free-electron lasers (FELs) allows scientists to obtain high-resolution structural insight into macromolecules. "The exceptionally intense X-ray pulses possible with FELs open the door for analyzing completely new classes of biomolecules like proteins from the cell membrane, that are hard or nearly impossible to...

There's nothing like a new pair of eyeglasses to bring fine details into sharp relief. For scientists who study the large molecules of life from proteins to DNA, the equivalent of new lenses have come in the form of an advanced method for analyzing data from X-ray crystallography experiments. The findings, just published in the journal Science, could lead to new understanding of the molecules that drive processes in biology, medical diagnostics, nanotechnology and other fields. Like...

UCLA researchers are now able to peer deep within the world's tiniest structures to create three-dimensional images of individual atoms and their positions. Their research, published March 22 in the journal Nature, presents a new method for directly measuring the atomic structure of nanomaterials. "This is the first experiment where we can directly see local structures in three dimensions at atomic-scale resolution – that's never been done before," said Jianwei (John) Miao, a...
