Single-Particle 3D Imaging with Atomic Resolution Using X-Ray Electron-Free Laser

Whether in the pages of H.G. Wells, the serial adventures of Flash Gordon, or that epic science fiction saga that is Star Wars, the appearance of laser beams—or rays or phasers or blasters—ultimately meant the imminent disintegration of our hero or perhaps something a little larger, say, an entire planet.

Photoelectron Spectroscopy in Near-Total-Reflection Geometry Could Help Investigate Buried Interfaces

Photoelectron Spectroscopy in Near-Total-Reflection Geometry Could Help Investigate Buried Interfaces

The nanoscale device community has shown great interest in exploiting the unique properties of ferroelectric materials for encoding information. But the circuitry for reading information stored in the polarization of these materials has prohibited its adaptation to extremely small scales. Now, researchers at Berkeley Lab and the Soleil Synchrotron in Paris have developed a new technique that provides key information for an alternative decoding method, where better understanding will help to fully harness the properties of these devices.
