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.
In experiments using X-ray angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, US researchers have discovered a new quantum effect that enables electrons to move through the interior of certain materials with very little resistance.Read More

New clues as to why inhalation of dust containing the group II metal, beryllium, causes a deadly immune response in the lungs of some people have emerged from X-ray diffraction, genetic, molecular binding and electrostatic studies. The research shows that a single amino acid change present in one lung protein, HLA-DP2, creates a pocket able to bind beryllium and sodium ions simultaneously and trigger the often lethal allergic disease berylliosis.

The molecular building blocks of DNA absorb ultraviolet light strongly and so one might imagine that sunlight damage them all beyond repair, yet it does not. Now, scientists have used ultrafast X-ray Auger probing of photoexcited molecular dynamics to help them to understand the critical "relaxation response" that apparently protects DNA and the genetic information it encodes, from ultraviolet damage.View All Ezines
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.
