Smaller, faster, more complex? Watching a phase transition with X-ray eyes

Vapor condensing on your mirror after a shower, molten iron cooling into solid bars, and diamonds forming under intense pressure – these are all examples of phase transitions, when a material transforms from one state to another. But while phase transitions are defined by their... click to read more
