Image: A Sankey diagram illustrating transition probabilities between the accessible electronic configurations (EC) of an argon atom exposed to an intense XFEL pulse at 480-electronvolts. The vertical bars represent ECs, and the width of each green branch, going from left to right, indicate the transition probability (Photo courtesy of DOE/Argonne National Laboratory).

Ultrafast 3-D X-Ray Imaging of Complex Systems Achieved at Near Atomic Resolution

Imaging complicated systems in three-dimensions with near-atomic resolution on ultrafast timescales using extremely intense X-ray free-electron laser pulses is now becoming a reality.   More...

Compressed Ultrafast Photography Designed to Aid Scientific Research

A group of biomedical engineers has developed the world’s fastest receive-only, two-dimensional camera, a device that can capture actions up to 100 billion frames per second. That is remarkably more rapid than any current receive-only ultrafast imaging techniques, which are limited by on-chip storage and electronic readout speed to operations of approximately 10 million frames per second.  More...

PET Scans Help Identify Effective Tuberculosis Drugs

Positron emission tomography lung imaging can reveal whether or not a treatment drug is able to eradicate tuberculosis lung infection in human and macaque studies. The new findings indicate that the animal model can effectively predict which experimental drugs have the best likelihood for success in human trials.  More...
