Nanoscale virus features reconstructed from correlations of scattered X-rays
16-Oct-2017 - As part of an international research team, Jeff Donatelli, Peter Zwart and Kanupriya Pande of the Center for Advanced Mathematics for Energy Research Applications (CAMERA) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) contributed key algorithms which helped achieve a goal first proposed ...
Watching 'artificial atoms' assemble into perfect lattices
Scientists see numerous uses
02-Aug-2017 - Some of the world's tiniest crystals are known as "artificial atoms" because they can organize themselves into structures that look like molecules, including "superlattices" that are potential building blocks for novel materials. Now scientists from the Department of Energy's SLAC National ...
Unexpected protein structure findings could lead to new therapies
07-Apr-2017 - Scientists have determined unexpected characteristics of a key protein linked to blood pressure control and to nerve growth, pain control and heart tissue regeneration. The findings opens doors to potential new therapies to control cardiovascular disease and pain. The protein, called AT2, is one ...
New X-Ray microscopy technique images nanoscale workings of rechargeable batteries
Method developed at Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source could help researchers improve battery performance
09-Aug-2016 - There's a new tool in the push to engineer rechargeable batteries that last longer and charge more quickly. An X-ray microscopy technique recently developed at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has given scientists the ability to image nanoscale ...
X-ray laser turns crystal imperfections into better images of important biomolecules
New method could remove major obstacles to studying structures of complex biological machines
12-Feb-2016 - Often the most difficult step in taking atomic-resolution images of biological molecules is getting them to form high-quality crystals needed for X-ray studies of their structure. Now researchers have shown they can get sharp images even with imperfect crystals using the world's brightest X-ray ...
Scientists film exploding nanoparticles
Imaging nanoscale dynamics with unparalleled detail and speed
08-Feb-2016 - Using a super X-ray microscope, an international research team has “filmed” the explosion of single nanoparticles. The team led by Tais Gorkhover from Technische Universität Berlin, currently working at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in the U.S. as a fellow of the Volkswagen Foundation, ...
Scientists X-ray protein crystals inside cells
Novel approach to unveil the structure of challenging biomolecules
22-Jan-2016 - Scientists from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory EMBL have teamed up with experts from DESY and the U.S. SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to X-ray protein crystals naturally produced within biological cells. The study at the world's currently most powerful X-ray laser LCLS at SLAC ...
