X-ray Vision Exposes Aerosol Structures
X-ray Vision Exposes Aerosol Structures - Researchers at SLAC have captured the most detailed images to date of airborne soot particles, a key contributor to global warming and a health hazard.

The discovery reveals the particles' surprisingly complex nanostructures and could ultimately aid the understanding of atmospheric processes important to climate change, as well as the design of cleaner combustion sources, from car engines to power plants.
