Yanting's ACS Photonics Paper!

Check out this paper that not only shows you how to do Stationary Sample Anisotropic Terahertz Microspectroscopy (SSATM) , but shows beautiful results of the effects of dehydration on the spectra!  The increased ordering seen in X-ray corresponds to a narrowing of the spectral peaks in SSATM! 

Mengyang Photoswitching of Picosecond Protein Dynamics Published in Photonics!

Congrats to Mengyang Xu and all contributors for publishing important results on fluorescent protein dynamical switching with bleaching!!!
