March 28, 2019In 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...
March 28, 2019Physicists 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...
March 25, 2019When maximum ductility and good machinability are needed and high strength is not required, ductile iron castings generally are given a full ferritizing anneal.
March 24, 2019The U.S. Department of Energy, Washington, announces $36 million in awards for 18 projects as part of the High Intensity Thermal Exchange through Materials and Manufacturing Processes (HITEMMP).
March 24, 2019GE Aviation, Auburn, Alabama, announces that it has been recognized by Aviation Week with a Laureate Award in the Business Aviation category for the GE Catalyst program’s innovative work with additive manufacturing design and implementation.
March 24, 2019Nikon Metrology, England, has developed X-ray/CT (computed tomography) systems that inspect the complex inner structures of products and detect any defects within them, all without disassembling the product.
March 24, 2019Materials scientists from the Russian National University of Science and Technology (NUST MISIS) announce that they have developed a unique steel-vanadium-steel sandwich material that is able to withstand temperatures of up to 700°C, hard radiation exposure, mechanical stress, and chemical exposure for a long period of time.
March 22, 2019Eastern Applied Research, Buffalo, N.Y., recently named as an Authorized Distributor of Hitachi High-Tech Science Corp., now offers an XRF analyzer developed for ultrathin film measurements and micro-spot analysis needs: the Hitachi FT-150 series.
March 22, 2019Paragraf, a recent University of Cambridge spin-out company in England, has started producing graphene – a sheet of carbon just one atomic layer thick – at up to eight inches (20 cm) in diameter, large enough for commercial electronic devices.
March 22, 2019Rigaku, Japan, announces the newest addition to the NEX DE series, the Rigaku NEX DE VS direct excitation variable-spot EDXRF elemental analyzer, which is uniquely suited for small spot analysis applications.
