R&D 100 - Hard X-ray Nanoprobe

Argonne scientist Jorg Maser, with chemist Tijana Rajh, at Argonne's Center for Nanoscale Materials, loads a sample into the hard X-ray nanoprobe. The nanoprobe uses brilliant X-rays with photon energies from 3 to 30 keV to probe the properties of nanoscale materials with a spatial resolution of 30 nm. The system provides a combination of scanning-probe and full-field transmission imaging. Argonne won a R&D 100 award for the hard X-ray nanoprobe. Read the full story.
