Recent Highlights

An ultrafast X-ray glance into photoacid electronic structure

Photoacids are molecules that release a proton upon electronic excitation, thus enhancing the acidity of a liquid. Pioneering work by Theodor Förster…

Magnesium contact ions stabilize the macromolecular structure of transfer RNA

In cells transfer RNA (tRNA) translates genetic information from the encoding messenger RNA (mRNA) for protein synthesis. New results from ultrafast…
