The technique can be used to study molecular phenomena and the forming and breaking of chemical bonds.
SLAC’s ‘electron camera’ films rapidly melting tungsten and reveals atomic-level material behavior that could impact the design of future reactors.
The approach could advance our understanding of fundamental forces under extreme conditions with applications from astrophysics to fusion research.
Researchers produced an underwater sound with an intensity that eclipses that of a rocket launch while investigating what happens when they blast tiny jets of water with X-ray laser pulses.
A laser technique lets researchers see how potentially dangerous growths form in batteries.
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.
