Chemistry & Catalysis
The technique can be used to study molecular phenomena and the forming and breaking of chemical bonds.
Combined with the lab’s LCLS X-ray laser, it’ll provide unprecedented atomic views of some of nature’s speediest processes.
A new twist on cryo-EM imaging reveals what’s going on inside MOFs, highly porous nanoparticles with big potential for storing fuel, separating gases and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
X-rays reveal an extinct mouse was dressed in brown to reddish fur on its back and sides and had a tiny white tummy.
Both are professors at Stanford and SLAC, where Martinez is an investigator with the Stanford PULSE Institute.
Scientists precisely control where single-atom catalysts sit on their support structures, and show how changing their position affects their reactivity.
A new method could be used to look at chemical reactions that other techniques can’t catch, for instance in catalysis, photovoltaics, peptide and combustion research.
First direct look at how atoms move when a ring-shaped molecule breaks apart could boost our understanding of fundamental processes of life.
In the decade since LCLS produced its first light, it has pushed boundaries in countless areas of discovery.
Researchers will use SLAC’s X-ray light source to probe 150 million-year-old dinosaur fossils at the atomic level.
