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

"Red lead" is familiar as a component of the orange-red rustproof paint used on boats and other areas exposed to the sea and the weather. It has also been used by countless artists through the centuries. Unfortunately, the pigment undergoes discoloration over time. Now, researchers at DESY have used X-ray diffraction mapping and tomography experiments to help them explain the process.

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.View All Ezines

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
