Go with the glow: X-rayed nano onions

Lanthanide-doped nanoparticles hold much promise in bioimaging, in solar energy conversion  and for volumetric displays. Now, a new approach to making their emissions brighter and broadening their bandwidth by layering them up has been studied with X-ray diffraction and other techniques.

X-ray microcomputed tomography was applied in characterizing the internal structures of a number of irradiated materials, including carbon-carbon fibre composites, nuclear-grade graphite and tristructural isotropic-coated fuel particles.

The years are not being too kind on Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers as almost predicted in Don McLean's ode to Vincent in which he described "Colours changing hue". New evidence from an X-ray spectroscopic study has now been published in journal Angewandte Chemie International Edition that suggests the blend of pigments used by the master is to blame for the changes and that the painting now may look very different from when van Gogh put paint to canvas.

We are proud to announce a new series of educational webinars run in collaboration with Chromedia, COAST, and SciMind, a product of the American Chemical Society. These webinars will build into a must-have set of tutorial materials for the analytical scientist.

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.
