Please join Apurva Mehta, SSRL for today’s Photon Science Seminar, “Why Vascular Stents Sometimes Break.” The phenomenon of superelasticity in near-equiatomic NiTi (Nitinol), which originates from a first order martensitic phase transition, is exploited in an increasing number of biomedical devices, most importantly endovascular stents. Deployment of these superelastic stents, especially in peripheral arteries such

Recent years have witnessed tremendous progress in our understanding of the ultrafast and ultra-small world thanks to the development of ultrafast optical lasers and the advent of X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL). Other approach that utilizes electrons as a probe have demonstrated the potential complementary to the X-ray based techniques. Electron based techniques enjoy many

The emergence of bacteria resistant to important classes of antibiotics has become a major clinical problem over the last few years, and now almost all antibacterial compounds in use today have associated examples of resistant bacterial isolates. Resistance to penicillins for example has been known since the late 1940′s, not long after these compounds were
