But romantic relationships mitigate these effects of trauma on a student's drinking behavior, according to a new study led by Virginia Commonwealth University researchers.
Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI have succeeded for the first time in looking inside materials using the method of transient grating spectroscopy with ultrafast X-rays at SwissFEL. The experiment at PSI is a milestone in observing processes in the world of atoms. The researchers are publishing their research results today in the journal Nature Photonics.
