Description

The Advanced Light Source (ALS), a world leader in soft x-ray science, generates light in the wavelengths needed for examining the atomic and electronic structure of matter. These two kinds of structure determine nearly all the commonly observed properties of matter, such as strength, chemical reactivity, thermal and electrical conductivity, and magnetism. A clearer understanding of atomic and electronic structure is the first step toward eventually designing new materials that better serve society, such as more compact electronics, more effective medicines, and more efficient solar cells.
