Two complementary rapid methods for the calibration of solid-state detectors are presented. The first uses a fluorescent glass standard and the second uses multiple diffraction lines from a material of known lattice spacing.

Self-propagating high-temperature synthesis provides an attractive practical method for producing advanced materials such as ceramics, composites and intermetallics. This kind of reaction has been investigated in situ using time-resolved X-ray diffraction, with an X-ray synchrotron beam coupled to simultaneous IR thermography to study structural transformations and thermal evolution.

Corrigendum. The scattering efficiencies of four test samples given in the original report were calculated incorrectly. Corrected values are provided; these are two to three orders of magnitude lower.

A workshop was held at Hamburg, Germany, to identify potential experiments in structural biology with a future X-ray free-electron laser. Applications for diffraction methods, spectroscopy, microscopy and holography of biological samples and their response to high doses were discussed.
