  1. 1. Flash Diffractive Imaging in Three Dimensions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tomas Ekeberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; X-ray; diffraction; mimivirus; three dimensional; phase retrieval; EMC; manifold embedding; CXI; FEL; free-electron laser; single particle; Physics with specialization in Biophysics; Fysik med inriktning mot biofysik;

    Abstract : During the last years we have seen the birth of free-electron lasers, a new type of light source ten billion times brighter than syncrotrons and able to produce pulses only a few femtoseconds long. One of the main motivations for building these multi-million dollar machines was the prospect of imaging biological samples such as proteins and viruses in 3D without the need for crystallization or staining.

  2. 2. Creating and Probing Extreme States of Materials From Gases and Clusters to Biosamples and Solids

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bianca Iwan; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; free-electron laser; ultrashort X-rays; non-equilibrium plasma; Coulomb explosion; isotope effect; hydrodynamic expansion; ion acceleration; high intensity lasers; ablation; time-of-flight spectroscopy; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : Free-electron lasers provide high intensity pulses with femtosecond duration and are ideal tools in the investigation of ultrafast processes in materials. Illumination of any material with such pulses creates extreme conditions that drive the sample far from equilibrium and rapidly convert it into high temperature plasma. READ MORE
