Researchers track patterns of island growth in crystals

March 28, 2019

In a new study from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, scientists have found that the seemingly random arrangement of islands that form as crystals begin new layers can actually be very similar from layer to layer. Using coherent x-ray scattering techniques to observe the crystal surface at the atomic scale during crystal growth, the researchers were able to...

Scientists use neutron scattering techniques to examine magnetic materials

March 28, 2019

Physicists from the University of Luxembourg and their research partners have demonstrated for the first time in a comprehensive study how different magnetic materials can be examined using neutron scattering techniques, much like an x-ray is used on other materials. Their research results can help material engineers to make predictions about load-bearing capacity, in addition to wear and...
