3D Chemical Imaging: New Frontier Across Disciplines

Sunday, 15 February 2015: 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
Room 230B (San Jose Convention Center)
3D images of molecular level chemistry are contributing to our knowledge about diverse topics that include diseased brain cells, plant cell wall structure and deconstruction, algae for biofuel production, volcanic ash, and composite materials. 3D chemical imaging is only possible with a multidisciplinary approach using advances in physics, software development to handle algorithm reconstructions, computer technology, data acquisition and storage, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, and X-ray crystallography. This symposium will review the pioneering technology and recent advances with infrared and X-ray derived chemical images from a broad sampling of applications from stem cells, plant cell walls, and composite materials.
