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.
New details of an integral component in the human body's cellular switchboard that regulates sensory and hormonal responses have been revealed by scientists using SLAC's ultrabright X-ray laser.The discovery could have broad implications on the development of more highly targeted and effective drugs with fewer side effects for high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and even some types of cancer.Read More

Two evaluation functions are proposed for the reconstructed electron-density images in X-ray crystallography, the first based on the atomicity of the electron-density distribution and properties of Fourier synthesis and the second based on the positivity of electron density and constrained power spectrum entropy maximization.

In this article, the late Ron Jenkins, formerly of the International Center for Diffraction Data provides a brief but comprehensive overview of modern X-ray techniques.
The 1962 book, Fifty Years of X-Ray Diffraction, dedicated to the International Union of Crystallography on the occasion of the commemoration meeting in Munich, July 1962, by P.P. Ewald (editor), and numerous crystallographers has been digitized and put on the web as a free site by the ICU.View All Education Articles
