(International Union of Crystallography, 2016-06)Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is an increasingly popular technique that provides low-resolution structural information about biological macromolecules in solution. Many of the practical limitations of the technique, ...
Dissipation signatures of the normal and superfluid phases in torsion pendulum experiments with ³He in aerogel (Physical Review B, 2014-03-13)We present data for the energy dissipation factor Q⁻¹ over a broad temperature range at various pressures of a torsion pendulum setup used to study ³He confined in a 98% open silica aerogel. Values for Q⁻¹ above Tc are ...
(Figures published in: Journal of Applied Physics, 2014-08-26)Investigations that probe defects one at a time offer a unique opportunity to observe properties and dynamics that are washed out of ensemble measurements. Here we present confocal fluorescence measurements of individual ...
Data for "A microfabricated fixed path length silicon sample holder improves background subtraction for cryoSAXS" (Journal of Applied Crystallography, 2015-02)The application of small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) for high-throughput characterization of biological macromolecules in solution is limited by radiation damage. By cryocooling samples, radiation damage and required ...
