In a specialized x-ray absorption experiment called near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS), x-rays are used to probe the chemical bonding and environment of specific elements in a moleculemore » or nanostructure, such as the nitrogen atoms in a triglycine molecule. Coupled with a liquid microjet technology developed at Berkeley Labs, NEXAFS has been previously used to examine how proteins dissolve and crystallize in the presence of various ions .« less
