Team Tests X-Ray Laser's Power, Sees Potential
An international team comprising more than 80 researchers has demonstrated the capabilities of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), a hard X-ray free-electron laser located in the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (Menlo Park, California).
Featured Products
Cuvette holder
Quantum Northwest's t2 Peltier cuvette holder is designed as a temperature-controlled holder for nearly any UV-vis absorbance spectrophotometer. According to the company, the compact holder can be mounted in different instruments and permits rapid changes over a wide temperature range. The holder reportedly can be used for assays, DNA melting, and other applications in which absorbance is dependent on the temperature of the sample. http://www.qnw.com/

Wire-grid polarizers

Wire-grid polarizers from Moxtek are designed for spectroscopy and instrumentation. According to the company, wire-grid polarizers allow a single polarizer to cover a broad range of wavelengths and enable simplified light management because of their large acceptance angles. The polarizers function over the UV to IR wavebands and can be used at normal incidence. Wire-grid polarizers with reduced reflection are also available.
