Friday [email protected] Talk on Taking Snapshots of Photosynthetic Water Oxidation

The next [email protected] lecture will be presented by Vittal Yachandra of the Physical Biosciences Division on Friday, May 11, in Building 15-253. He will discuss “Taking Snapshots of Photosynthetic Water Oxidation.” Using ultrashort X-ray pulses from a free-electron laser, scientists hope to obtain a much better understanding of the sequential chemistry of light absorption and water-oxidation by probing the reaction in real time under operating conditions. The talk will be broadcast live and available for later viewing here.
