Cementing the future

Cement is a mineral-based material that binds together sand and rock to form concrete. Although the use of cement stretches back into antiquity, scientists are still unclear on the exact process by which it transforms from ...

Novel X-ray optics boost imaging capabilities at NSLS-II

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a new approach to 3-D x-ray imaging that can visualize bulky materials in great detail—an impossible task with conventional ...

New capabilities at NSLS-II set to advance materials science

By channeling the intensity of x-rays, synchrotron light sources can reveal the atomic structures of countless materials. Researchers from around the world come to the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II)—a U.S. ...

Scientists have a new way to gauge the growth of nanowires

In a new study, researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne and Brookhaven National Laboratories observed the formation of two kinds of defects in individual nanowires, which are smaller in diameter than ...

Novel lenses enable X-ray microscopy with record resolution

Scientists at DESY have developed novel lenses that enable X-ray microscopy with record resolution in the nanometre regime. Using new materials, the research team led by DESY scientist Sasa Bajt from the Center for Free-Electron ...

Hard X-ray nanoprobe beamline now open for user experiments

The Hard X-Ray Nanoprobe takes full advantage of the ultra-bright x-rays produced by NSLS-II, a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility. The heart of the beamline is the HXN x-ray microscope, developed at ...

First NSLS-II X-ray images hint at science to come

In another "first" at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, a group working at the Hard X-Ray Nanoprobe has taken the facility's inaugural x-ray images. Their striking renderings ...

A new X-ray microscope for nanoscale imaging

Delivering the capability to image nanostructures and chemical reactions down to nanometer resolution requires a new class of x-ray microscope that can perform precision microscopy experiments using ultra-bright x-rays from ...
