  1. 1. Ultrafast Structural Changes in a Bacterial Photosynthetic Reaction Center probed with XFEL Radiation

    Author : Robert Dods; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Photosynthesis; Reaction Center; Time-resolved crystallography; XFEL; membrane protein;

    Abstract : Photosynthesis is the process by which plants and many species of bacteria convert energy from sunlight into chemical energy used to power their metabolism. As these plants and bacteria are eaten, the chemical energy moves up the food chain and thus photosynthesis provides fuel for almost all life on Earth. READ MORE

  2. 2. FPGA-based Instrumentation for Advanced Physics Experiments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Attila Hidvégi; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Instrumentation; Data acquisition; clock distribution; trigger; FPGA; PCB; LHC; ATLAS; XFEL; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : Modern physical experiments often demand advanced instrumentation based on advances in  technology. This work describes four instrumentation physics projects that are based on modern, high-capacity Field-Programmable Gate Arrays, making use of their versatility, programmability, high bandwidth communication interfaces and signal processing capabilities.

  3. 3. X-ray free-electron laser based methods for structural and ultrafast dynamics studies of a photosynthetic reaction centre

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : David Arnlund; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; WAXS; wide-angle x-ray scattering; XFEL; x-ray free-electron laser; reaction center; structural biology; ultrafast dynamics;

    Abstract : Life on earth is fuelled by the energy of sunlight, which must first be captured and converted into a chemical energy form useful to the cell. This process is known as photosynthesis and the major pathway of this energy conversion is via photosynthetic reaction centres. READ MORE

  4. 4. Coherent Diffractive Imaging with X-ray Lasers

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Max Felix Hantke; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; coherent diffractive X-ray imaging; lensless imaging; coherent X-ray diffractive imaging; flash diffractive imaging; single particle imaging; aerosol injection; electrospray injection; substrate-free sample delivery; carboxysome; phase retrieval; X-ray diffraction software; X-ray free-electron laser; XFEL; FEL; CXI; CDI; CXDI; FXI;

    Abstract : The newly emerging technology of X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) has the potential to revolutionise molecular imaging. XFELs generate very intense X-ray pulses and predictions suggest that they may be used for structure determination to atomic resolution even for single molecules. READ MORE

  5. 5. Advances in Biomolecular Imaging with X-ray Free-Electron Lasers

    University dissertation from Uppsala University
