High-Resolution XAS/XES: Analyzing Electronic Structures of Catalysts

Jacinto Sa
April 13, 2017

Photon-in-photon-out core level spectroscopy is an emerging approach to characterize the electronic structure of catalysts and enzymes, and it is either installed or planned for intense synchrotron beam lines and X-ray free electron lasers. This type of spectroscopy requires high-energy resolution...

Physics of Coal and Mining Processes

Anatoly D. Alexeev
March 30, 2017

Around the world, on average, four coal miners die for each million tons of coal recovered. Improving the safety of mining work while responding to the need for increased coal production, however, is impossible without further development of the physics of mining processes. A relatively new branch...
