Nanocrystals with Metastable High-Pressure Phases Under Ambient Conditions
This groundbreaking work was supported by a collaboration between the PI an collaborators and CHEXS scientist Zhongwu Wang, spanning many years, across the former CHESS “B-line” beamline and the new CHEXS HPBio facilities. This work was enabled by custom diamond anvil cells with large opening angles for simultaneous SAXS / WAXS measurements, and by in-situ spectroscopy techniques deployed at CHESS

Determination of bond strengths in non-woven fabrics: A combined experimental and computational approach
Non-woven materials have fiber network structures and present some good physical properties, like high porosity, high mechanical strength and high toughness.
New technique simplifies creation of nanoparticle 'magic-sized clusters'
One of the cool things about nanoparticles is also what makes them so difficult to work with: the fact that their properties are dependent on their size.
X-ray detector for studying characteristics of materials
Modern synchrotron x-ray sources, such as the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron (CHESS), produce x-ray beams with unprecedented capabilities.
Pressure-induced fabrication of Janus nanoparticles and helically decorating nanorods
Using pressure rather than chemicals, a joint research team of Brown and Cornell Universities combined their strengths and reshaped nanoparticles into highly monodispersive Janus nanoparticles and helically decorating nanorods.
