This work forms the starting point to understanding the mechanisms of charge transport in ternary spinel systems.
Using CVD diamonds in X-ray monochromators enables affordable compact systems operable in a laboratory with conventional X-ray sources, under extreme conditions as high radiation heat load optics at synchrotrons, or, possibly, as compact remote X-ray instrumentation for planetary missions.
Developing materials that exhibit superconductivity at room temperature for wide spread commercial use would allow a significant reduction in energy consumption throughout the power grid.
By understanding how an essential enzyme is inactivated in an organism-specific manner, the researchers hope to contribute to the development of new anti-pathogenetic therapies.

Serial crystallography is a method for obtaining structural information on an atomic level of a protein, without the need for large protein crystals.

Li metal has long been considered the ideal anode material for Li rechargeable batteries. In this study, researchers employed synchrotron-based X-ray imaging methods at CHESS to image the evolution

Some of the highest-temperature superconductors and other strongly correlated quantum materials exhibit an anisotropic electronic phase, called nematic phase, where electrons spontaneously break th

3-D X-ray absorption and diffraction-based characterization techniques are powerful tools to quantify the micromechanical response of Alternate Cementitious Materials (ACMs).

Ferroelectric (FE) materials exhibit spontaneous electric polarization that can be reversed by external electric fields. Relaxor ferroelectrics, such as PbMg1/3Nb2/3O3-xPbTiO3 (PMN-xPT), are FE mat

Shape memory alloys see use in numerous aerospace and biomedical applications, but their wider use is limited by functional fatigue.
