Mark Le Gros and his boss Carolyn Larabell, from the National Center for X-ray Tomography in the USA, have an interesting professional relationship. Together they have successfully built a new biological imaging microscope on a beamline at the Advanced Light Source - a synchrotron in Berkeley, California. They also happen to be married! Ruth Beran met with them while they were in New Zealand recently, and found out how x-ray tomography works, and what it can be used for.
