Paleontologist Phil Manning describes the “Imaging Life on Earth” project at TEDxCharleston.
Focused X-rays reveal how rocks under high pressure transform into different materials.
Beams of X-rays uncover surprising techniques in the creation of art on ancient Greek pottery.
The discovery is one of the first steps towards mapping hues of fossilized species.
Liu acknowledged for wide-ranging work in energy materials, catalysis, carbon sequestration, material in extreme conditions and scientific big data mining.
Merging two powerful 3-D X-ray techniques, researchers revealed new details of a process known as metal poisoning that clogs the pores of catalyst particles used in gasoline production, causing them to lose effectiveness.
Contributions to LIGO have come from many Stanford teams, including SLAC, Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautics and Astronautics and the School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences.
A new study with the LCLS X-ray laser could change the way researchers take atomic-level snapshots of important biological machineries, potentially affecting research in drug development, clean energy production and many more areas.
This surprising finding has potentially broad implications, from X-ray imaging of single particles to fusion research.
X-ray research on 80-million-year-old fossilized burrows, likely the work of tiny marine worms, is helping scientists understand how living organisms affected the chemistry of the sea floor.
