January 24, 2019Researchers determined for the first time what controls formation of two different nanoscale crystalline structures in the metal cobalt. Using high-energy x-ray beams, scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology watched a high-pressure, high-temperature chemical reaction, which allowed them to study cobalt nanoparticles as they grew from clusters including tens of atoms to crystals...
January 24, 2019Corrosion is difficult to prevent, as the exact mechanism that accelerates its growth on metals and alloys has remained elusive to engineers. Now an international team of scientists has peered into the atomic-level workings of water vapor corrosion, using an environmental transmission electron microscope. Their research reveals how the involvement of protons speeds the corrosion process.
