MPSD researchers develop a new method for water diffraction in transmission electron microscopes. Their work has appeared as a featured article in the Journal of Chemical Physics. more

Electron spin is one of the most fundamental quantities defining the properties of molecules. A new study by a research team from Germany, Canada, Poland, and Lebanon offers a detailed understanding on how changes in spin states affect the nuclear configuration as a probe of the change in electron distribution by directly observing the atomic motions and changes in the molecular structure, driven by change in electron spin. more

Efficient new electron diffraction method for fragile protein crystals more

Team develops new crystallography method which dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence. more

Researchers from the MPSD and the University of Toronto have pieced together a detailed time-lapse movie revealing all the major steps during the catalytic cycle of an enzyme. more
