Smaller, faster, more complex? Watching a phase transition with X-ray eyes

Vapor condensing on your mirror after a shower, molten iron cooling into solid bars, and diamonds forming under intense pressure – these are all examples of phase transitions, when a material transforms from one state to another. But while phase transitions are defined by their... click to read more

Many macroscopic processes that are part of our everyday lives have their origins in the tiniest motions: a molecule absorbs light, causing atoms to move by fractions of the distance between them, individual bonds to form or break. This determines whether a plant can transform... click to read more
