Cover illustration: Evolution of an explosion (projective image), see Aulchenko, Papushev, Ponomarev, Shekhtman and Zhulanov, pages 361-365. The horizontal scale is the position and the vertical scale is the time passed since detonation. The detonation wave is at the bottom of the figure. The image was produced at VEPP-3 (Novosibirsk) with the DIMEX detector.

The scientific potential of an energy-recovery linac (ERL) source of X-rays is enormous; however, a prototype low-energy ERL must first be built to resolve significant accelerator physics issues.

The infrared Mark-III FEL is a useful tool for human surgery. A theoretical analysis is presented, indicating that the wavelength 6.45 µm has the most accessible range of superpulse parameters that enable this surgical application.

Based on temperature-dependent EXAFS studies of high-temperature superconducting oxides, a model of the relationship between the local crystal and the local electronic structures has been proposed. In a common approach the model explains the antiferromagnetic state, metal–insulator phase transition and the appearance of superconductivity, and eliminates the discrepancy between neutron-scattering and EXAFS data.

In a tooth of the sea urchin Lytechinus variegatus, synchrotron X-ray phase microradiography followed by confocal-light microscopy and by synchrotron X-ray absorption micro-computed tomography revealed a previously unsuspected pair of parallel rows of channels in the keel.

X-ray scattering data have been recorded from protein solutions to 2.2 Å spacing using the BioCAT insertion-device beamline at the Advanced Photon Source. The measured scattering is in agreement with that predicted using the program CRYSOL and atomic coordinates from the PDB. Features in the patterns can be used to assess both the structural integrity of the protein and the extent of radiation-induced damage.
