Quality in the Laboratory

Quality is of extreme importance for labs. However, it is often seen as the responsibility of the quality manager and its importance and impact on your own work is not always well understood. In this webinar, Peter Kootstra will reinforce how quality can improve your performance and your work satisfaction.

Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Resistance is low: New quantum effect

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.

Whether you're a tweed-wearing hipster or down with the kids sporting your post-modern baggy jeans, textile-based solar cells that could be patched into your clothes might one day let you charge up your mobile phone or other gadgets while out in the sunshine, according to research published this month in the journal Angewandte Chemie. The work by scientists in China used X-ray characterization of key components to take the first solar strides.

The directional asymmetry, allometry, physical maturity and sexual dimorphism of the Pontoporia blainvillei dolphin were estimated from the X-ray analysis of the flipper skeleton.

Solar power: Crystallographic clues

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.

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.
