Paper on HHG callibration in SPIE Proceedings

October 13, 2023: Congratulations to PhD student Taylor Buckway, undergraduate research assistant Aaron Redd, and team for our recent publication in SPIE Proceedings: "Addressing calibration of high-harmonic generation sources used for studying magnetism." Work was performed with our BYU high harmonic generation system built by Taylor and also extreme ultraviolet spectroscopy at the Advanced Light Source. 

New publication on Laue diffraction microscopy in Journal of Synchrotron Radiation

May 30, 2023: We are excited about our recent publication from the Journal of Synchrotron Radiation entitled "Mapping nanocrystal orientations via scanning Lue diffraction microscopy for multi-peak Bragg coherent diffraction imaging," by Y. Zhang et al. It features research contributions from gradaute student second author Nick Porter and undergraduate research assistants Josh Miller and Landon Schnebly together with our collaborators from Argonne National Laboratory, Carnegie Mellon University, and DESY. Check it out here (link).
