The X-ray spectrometry channel covers all aspects of research into techniques using X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and crystallography used in material science, protein analysis, art and archaeology research, environmental analysis, biotechnology and pharmaceutical analysis.
X-ray crystallography has been by a team in the USA to obtain the precise structure of the original strain of enterovirus EV-D68 known to cause respiratory illness and polio-like symptoms in children as well as a second structure in which the virus is bound to the drug pleconaril.Read More

An ancient black hole that formed less than a billion years after the Big Bang sits at the heart of a distant quasar first observed from China. The black hole has a mass estimated at 12 billion times that of our Sun and the system a luminosity equivalent to 420 trillion suns. The Hubble and Chandra X-ray telescopes are now observing this astonishing and enigmatic entity.
