Using the brilliant soft x-rays from the BOREAS beamline, a group of international researchers from Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Germany, Italy and Spain have studied the magnetic properties of SrRuO3. These results - recently published in Physical Review B - give important insights into the magnetic characteristics of Ru which may have impact on the technical development of more efficient storage devices.
ALBA is testing the bending magnets to be installed at the storage ring of SESAME, the synchrotron facility that is being built in the Middle East.
A team of ALBA engineers in collaboration with the Centro de Láseres Pulsados Ultracortos Ultraintensos (CLPU) have developed a new design of viewport compatible with high vacuum that can be adapted to a laser compressor chamber.
Using hard X-rays of the ALBA Synchrotron, a group of researchers have solved the crystal structure of rationally designed single-chain protein constructs that can prevent HIV-1 infection.
X-ray diffraction experiments were performed at the MSPD beamline of the ALBA Synchrotron. Results have been published recently in Nature Communications scientific journal.
