  • Hard X-ray Phase Contrast Microscopy. Techniques and Applications. 

    Holzner, Christian (The Graduate School, Stony Brook University: Stony Brook, NY., 1-Aug-10)
    In 1918, Einstein provided the first description of the nature of the refractive index for X-rays, showing that phase contrast effects are significant. A century later, most x-ray microscopy and nearly all medical imaging ...
  • X-ray diffraction microscopy on frozen hydrated specimens 

    Nelson, Johanna (The Graduate School, Stony Brook University: Stony Brook, NY., 1-Aug-10)
    X-rays are excellent for imaging thick samples at high resolution because of their large penetration depth compared to electrons and their short wavelength relative to visible light. To image biological material, the ...
