Intense two-color double X-ray laser pulses: a powerful tool to study ultrafast processes

A team working at the SACLA X-ray Free-Electron Laser (XFEL) in Japan has succeeded in generating ultra-bright, two-color X-ray laser pulses, for the first time in the hard X-ray region. These light pulses with different wavelengths, whose time separation can be adjusted with attosecond accuracy, are powerful tools to investigate the structure of matter and the dynamics of ultrafast physical processes and chemical reactions.

Researchers discover nanoscale shape-memory oxide

A research team at Berkeley Lab has discovered a way to introduce a recoverable strain into bismuth ferrite of up to 14-percent on the nanoscale, larger than any shape-memory effect observed in a metal. This discovery opens the door to applications in a wide range of fields, including medical, energy and electronics.
