Abstract

High energy storage rings provide a source of X-rays with a brilliance that exceeds that available from conventional sources by several orders of magnitude. As a result it is now possible to observe dynamic processes in biological systems by time-resolved X-ray scattering (Bordas, 1985). This implies that the structural information, classically derived from X-ray methods can now be combined with the kinetic information that is usually obtained from measurements such as light scattering and fluorescence.
