Elemental Analysis of Mycobacterium avium-, Mycobacterium tuberculosis-, and Mycobacterium smegmatis-Containing Phagosomes Indicates Pathogen-Induced Microenvironments within the Host Cell’s
Mycobacterium avium and Mycobacterium tuberculosis are human pathogens that infect and replicate within macrophages. Both organisms live in phagosomes that fail to fuse with lysosomes and haveExpand

Nanometer linear focusing of hard x rays by a multilayer Laue lens.
We report on a type of linear zone plate for nanometer-scale focusing of hard x rays, a multilayer Laue lens (MLL), produced by sectioning a multilayer and illuminating it in Laue diffractionExpand

Elemental analysis of the Mycobacterium avium phagosome in Balb/c mouse macrophages.
Using a hard X-ray microprobe, we showed recently that in unstimulated peritoneal macrophages from C57BL/6 mice, the phagosome of pathogenic mycobacteria (Mycobacterium tuberculosis and MycobacteriumExpand

Nonequilibrium structural dynamics of nanoparticles in LiNi(1/2)Mn(3/2)O4 cathode under operando conditions.
We study nonequilibrium structural dynamics in LiNi1/2Mn3/2O4 spinel cathode material during fast charge/discharge under operando conditions using coherent X-rays. Our in situ measurements reveal aExpand
