New 360° video shows research in the EU project MgSafe

X-Ray vision in 360° - Within the EU project MgSafe Hanna Slominska and Kamila Iskhakova are doing their PhD at the HZG, but conduct their experiments at the HZG outstation at the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron DESY. They use the special X-ray light at the beamlines there to make even the smallest material processes visible. These investigations help to monitor the degradation of the magnesium implants and the regeneration of the surrounding bone at high resolution. This is of particular importance as the implant is required to yield sufficient stability during healing and should quickly be dissolved afterwards.
