Our study provides convincing evidence that the prompt gamma-ray burst emission is driven by synchrotron radiation
Caption: Tomislav Friscic and his colleagues have been using the European Synchrotron Radiation
Facility, which is nestled in the mountains of southeastern France, to open up frontiers of mechanochemistry, grinding molecules together to promote hydrogen bond associations.
A method to include the influence of the vertical electron beam emittance onto the calculability of synchrotron radiation
It points out that the ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation
Facility) in Grenoble, the VLT (Very Large Telescope) of the ESO in Chile or the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN in Geneva are all world leaders contributing to the excellence and reputation of European science.
The PLS is operated as a national user facility designed to provide synchrotron radiation
with continuous wavelengths down to 1 micrometer, owned and operated by PAL and the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH ) on behalf of the Korean government.

Scientists at the European Synchrotron Radiation
Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, France, studied the fossils for over five days.
For their latest publication in Nature Chemistry, Friscic and his team brought a modified milling apparatus to the European Synchrotron Radiation
Facility in Grenoble, France where they used x-ray radiation that was hard enough to get through the three-millimetre thick steel walls of the milling vessel, but soft enough to interact with the components inside.
Among the topics are the structure and composition of chocolate and cocoa butter, the influence of symmetry and chain length mismatch in the phase behavior of saturated triacylglycerides, polymorphism and mixing phase behavior of major triacylglycerols of cocoa butter, causes of bloom in confections and best manufacturing practices to minimize it, effects of minor components on cocoa butter polymorphism and kinetics of crystallization, the impact of cocoa butter origin on crystal behavior, studying molecular interactions in fats with synchrotron radiation
microbeam X-ray diffraction, milk fat and cocoa butter, enzymatic and other modification techniques to produce cocoa butter alternatives, and confectionery fats.
There is also discussion of the latest research techniques, such as brain tissue segmentation based on multi-channel diffusion tensor imaging data, three-dimensional microstructural analysis of human brain tissue using synchrotron radiation
microtomographs, and diffusion tensor MRI data acquisition methods for white matter and clinical applications.
LCLS will be the world's first x-ray free electron laser and will provide a powerful combination of laser properties delivered at x-ray wavelengths," says Keith Hodgson, director of the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation
Laboratory (SSRL) at SLAC.
Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tubingen, Germany, and the European Synchrotron Radiation
Facility in Grenoble, France, identified a gene that codes for one of the crystal-organizing proteins.
