With X-ray beams a billion times brighter than that available from traditional synchrotron sources, and the ability to record changes that happen in mere femtoseconds, X-ray free electron lasers are changing the field of X-ray crystallography. Want to film a chemical reaction as it happens? Determine the structure of a single particle of a virus? X-ray free electron lasers are opening up these and other previously unexplored areas of experimentation. In this webinar, C&EN brings you a conversation with two of the field’s pioneers, Uwe Bergmann and Cluadio Pellegrini.
