Van Gogh’s pigment up close: plumbonacrite revealed as intermediate in degradation of red lead
Red lead is most familiar to us in orange-red rustproof paint. Artists have treasured the brilliant color of this pigment for their paintings since ancient times. However, various ageing processes cause discoloration of the saturated hue over time. Thanks to a combination of X-ray diffraction ...
Study demonstrates potential of future X-ray laser investigations
Using the world´s most powerful X-ray laser, an international team of researchers, including scientists from DESY, have produced a 3-D image of an intact, infectious virus. The experiment at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in the U.S. reveals part of the inner structure of the Mimivirus, ...
New technique facilitates analysis of biomolecules in a near-natural state
Photosynthesis is one of the most important processes in nature. The complex method by which all green plants harvest sunlight and thereby produce the oxygen in our air is still not fully understood. Researchers have used DESY's X-ray light source PETRA III to investigate a photosynthesis ...
Researchers watch layers of football molecules grow
Using DESY's ultrabright X-ray source PETRA III, researchers have observed in real-time how football-shaped carbon molecules arrange themselves into ultra-smooth layers. Together with theoretical simulations, the investigation reveals the fundamentals of this growth process for the first time in ...
‘Electric Prism’ Separates Water’s Nuclear Spin States
Using an "electric prism", scientists have found a new way of separating water molecules that differ only in their nuclear spin states and, under normal conditions, do not part ways. Since water is such a fundamental molecule in the universe, the recent study may impact a multitude of research ...
PETRA III pioneers protein serial crystallography at synchrotrons
Using DESY's synchrotron light source PETRA III, scientists have pioneered a new way to analyse delicate biomolecules. The novel approach, borrowed from a new class of high-intensity X-ray sources called free-electron lasers (FELs), could reveal the atomic structure of proteins that were ...
