High Temperature Superconductivity: Taming Serendipity

The APS Colloquium Committee has invited Laura H. Greene as the Speaker for the Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015, APS Colloquium. She will present "High Temperature Superconductivity: Taming Serendipity" at 3 p.m. in the APS 402 Aud.

From Partial Coherence to Computed Tomography: Applications and Challenges of State-of-the-art Ptychography

During the last decade, ptychography has emerged as an invaluable method for X-ray microscopy at synchrotron facilities that delivers quantitative images of extended specimens at diffraction limited resolution. It combines scanning microscopy with coherent diffractive imaging, probing the sample both in real and in reciprocal space and thereby creating large data sets from which iterative algorithms extract images of sample and illumination.
