Forthcoming article in Journal of Synchrotron Radiation

Synchrotron radiation research is rapidly expanding with many new sources of radiation being created globally. Synchrotron radiation plays a leading role in pure science and in emerging technologies. The Journal of Synchrotron Radiation provides comprehen


Non-contact luminescence lifetime cryothermometry for macromolecular crystallography
Concept and practical implementation of a system for remote monitoring of temperature of protein crystals down to 10 K using microscopic bis­muth germinate scintillation sensor.

A high-pressure single-crystal-diffraction experimental system at 4W2 beamline of BSRF
An experimental system has been developed at beamline 4W2 of the Beijing Synchrotron Radiation Facility to perform high-pressure single-crystal diffraction. The design and operation of this system are reported together with a recent result to illustrate its performance.

Hard X-ray-induced damage on carbon–binder matrix for in situ synchrotron transmission X-ray microscopy tomography of Li-ion batteries
The objective here is to investigate hard X-ray induced damage on the carbon–binder matrix in Li-ion battery cells in situ and find ways to avoid the damage. The radiation damage on the carbon–binder matrix during TXM tomography can be avoided by minimizing the accumulated X-ray dose and choosing intermittent X-ray exposure.

Complex solutions under shear and pressure: a rheometer setup for X-ray scattering experiments
Development of a high-pressure rheometer for in situ X-ray scattering experiments.

Development of optical choppers for time-resolved measurements at soft X-ray synchrotron radiation beamlines
Two types of optical choppers for time-resolved measurements in soft X-ray beamlines of synchrotron radiation facilities were developed, which are utilized under ultra-high-vacuum conditions.

Advances in testing the effect of acceleration on time dilation using a synchrotron Mössbauer source
New results, additional techniques and know-how acquired, developed and employed in a recent HC-1898 experiment at the Nuclear Resonance Beamline ID18 of ESRF are presented, in the quest to explore the acceleration effect on time dilation.

Caltrop particles synthesized by photochemical reaction induced by X-ray radiolysis
X-ray radiolysis of a Cu(CH3COO)2 solution was observed to produce caltrop-shaped particles of cupric oxide (CuO).

Nanofabrication and characterization of a grating-based condenser for uniform illumination with hard X-rays
An X-ray condenser based on gratings has been successfully fabricated and its optical character measured.

Radiography registration for mosaic tomography
A hybrid method to stitch X-ray computed tomography datasets is proposed and the feasibility to apply the scheme in a synchrotron tomography beamline with micrometre resolution is shown.

Respiratory-gated KES imaging of a rat model of acute lung injury at the Canadian Light Source
A K-edge subtraction imaging approach for respiratory-gated lung imaging using iodine and xenon contrast agents in a rodent model is presented.
