    Mosquitos infect millions of people with diseases including life-threatening malaria and dengue every year. Other insects are blamed for billions of dollars of damage to crops across the United States. And while most people squirm, swat, and scratch at the sight of insects, othersâ€"albeit far fewer than mostâ€"look to research facilities like ultra-bright x-ray-producing synchrotron light sources for unprecedented views of these six-legged creatures

  11. Photon Sciences Seminar

    "In-situ XAS, TXM and RIXS experiments"

    Presented by Frank de Groot, Debye Institute of Nanomaterials Science, Utrecht University, Netherlands

    Thursday, October 1, 2015, 11 am
    CFN Seminar Room, 2nd Fl., Bldg 735

    New developments in in-situ x-ray absorption (XAS), transmission x-ray microscopy (TXM) and resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) will be discussed. A brief introduction is given of x-ray absorption spectroscopy, including the multiplet interpretation of XAS spectral shapes [1,2]. Nanoscale chemical imaging of catalysts under working conditions is possible with transmission x-ray microscopy. We have shown that TXM can image a catalytic system under relevant reaction conditions and provides detailed information on the morphology and composition of the catalyst material in situ [3]. The 20 nanometer resolution combined with powerful chemical speciation by XAS and the ability to image materials under reaction conditions opens up new opportunities to study many chemical processes. I will discuss the present status of in-situ TXM, with an emphasis on the abilities of the 10+ nm resolution TXM technique in comparison with 0.1 nm STEM-EELS [4,5]. Hard X-ray TXM allows the measurement of chemical images and tomographs under more realistic conditions, using a capillary reactor at 10 bar Fischer-Tropsch conditions [6]. The second part of the talk deals with resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS), In 2p3d RIXS one scans through the 2p XAS edge and measures the optical excitation range. As an example, the RIXS spectra of CoO will be discussed. The experimental resolution of 100 meV at ADRESS allows the detailed observation of the electronic structure. First-principle theoretical modelling was performed for the ground state and multiplet analysis for the RIXS experiments. The implications for measurements on coordination compounds (cobalt carboxylates) and cobalt nanoparticles is discussed, in particular the comparison with optical spectroscopy [7]. Related to the RIXS measurements is the analysis of Fluorescence yield (FY) detected x-ray absorption spectra (XAS), including the intrinsic deviations of the FY-XAS spectral shape from

  16. C-AD Accelerator Physics Seminar

    "A Robinson Wiggler for Lifetime and Brilliant Improvement at the Metrology Light Source"

    Presented by Tobias Goetsch, Helmholtz-Zentrum, Germany

    Thursday, May 14, 2015, 4 pm
    Large Conf. Rm. Bldg. 911B, Rm. A202

    Hosted by: Wolfram Fischer

    "The beam lifetime in electron storage rings concerns machines running in decay mode as well as machines doing top-up. A standard procedure to increase the lifetime is via bunch lengthening as the lifetime depends on the electron density in the bunch. Bunch lengthening is typically achieved with higher harmonic (Landau) cavities. There are several advantages in using a different approach: it is possible to increase the bunch length by installing a transverse gradient (Robinson) Wiggler, which allows to transfer damping between the horizontal and the longitudinal plane. While increasing the bunch length, the horizontal emittance is being reduced yielding advantages regarding the source size depending on the magnet optics. At the Metrology Light Source, a primary source standard used by Germanys national metrology institute (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt), such a scheme is being investigated. The prospects are higher brilliance for the important beamlines together with a lifetime improvement in the order of 100 %."
