PULSE Special Seminar: Dynamical Phase Control in Atomic and Nuclear Physics

PULSE will host a special seminar on Friday, May 15 at 2 pm in the Sycamore Conference Room (Building 40, Room 192). At this seminar, Andreas Kaldun from the Max Planck Institute, will present a talk entitled, "Dynamical Phase Control in Atomic and Nuclear Physics". 

Han Dao, PULSE research assistant, publishes first paper as a lead author

PULSE would like to congratulate Han Dao who had his first paper as a lead author published last month in the journal, Structural Dynamics. This research was carried out by the PULSE NPI group and is also one of the first occasions where Dr. Hasan DeMirci, PULSE Research Associate, was listed as the senior author. The paper, entitled "Goniometer based femtosecond X-ray diffraction of mutant 30S ribosomal subunit crystals", was made possible by combining the expertise of the PULSE NPI group in sample preparation, the development of sample handling hardware at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Light Source, and the exceptional user support at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) prior to and during the team's data collection. Through their research, the NPI group was primarily interested in "elucidating the contribution of this ribosomal protein to the overall subunit structure" and was able to demonstrate the feasibility of pursuing high resolution data collection at an x-ray free electron laser. In light of the proposed future of the MFX hutch at LCLS, the method used by the scientists in this paper could serve as a preview of what the user community might use there once it goes online.
