X-ray lasers and particle accelerators

Recommended Posts



A ground breaking technique that could produce an electron beam up to 10,000 times brighter than the most powerful beams today, has been developed by researchers from the UK and US. The findings could be particularly applicable for use in the next generation of more compact, more powerful particle accelerators, enhancing scientific applications.

It was this however which caught my attention, quote...

These ultrabright beams may eventually allow production of X-ray pulses short and bright enough to allow observation of electronic motion inside atoms and molecules on their natural timescales.

Its like the polar opposite of the black hole photo, the perfect companion.
