The X-ray Free-electron Laser: Exploring Matter at the Angstrom-femosecond Space and Time Scales
Speaker: Prof. C. Pellegrini, Department of Physics and Astronomy, UCLA and SLAC National Accelerator Lab
Series: Other Events
Date/Time: Monday, September 23, 2013, 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
A deeper understanding of atomic and molecular science is made possible by the use of new high-power short-pulse X-ray free-electron lasers. Their record levels of intensity and coherence has allowed scientists to probe the detailed geometry and chemistry of evolving small systmes, from teh atomic-molecular scale to nanoparticles, proteins, viruses adn even cells.
