The ALBA Synchrotron has developed an algorithm for controlling the amount and location of electrons at the Storage Ring. This new development will enable ALBA users to perform time-resolved experiments.
A group of researchers from the University of the Basque Country has discovered a surprisingly high ferromagnetic transition temperature Tc in a GdAg2 single-layer-alloy that may serve as a building block for future spintronic devices.
The first 3D map of the interior of cells affected by the virus. Scientists at the Centro Nacional de Biotecnología of the CSIC (CNB-CSIC) and the ALBA Synchrotron have observed the alterations caused by the hepatitis C virus at the endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria of infected cells. These malformations were reversed by treatment with the most common antiviral drugs for hepatitis C.
The ALBA Synchrotron has published its annual report of activities performed in 2015. This document includes scientific results, technology reviews and facts & figures of the facility.
The research provides the first insights on the spatial distribution of calcium in coccolithophores, widespread marine algae that may play an important role in the response of the oceanic ecosystem to predicted global climate change.
