Discovery of gold nanocluster 'double' hints at other shape-changing particles


Chemically the same, graphite and diamonds are as physically distinct as two minerals can be, one opaque and soft, the other translucent and hard. What makes them unique is their differing arrangement of carbon atoms. Polymorphs, or materials with the same composition but different structures, ...

ORNL tracks how halogen atoms compete to grow 'winning' perovskites


Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have found a potential path to further improve solar cell efficiency by understanding the competition among halogen atoms during the synthesis of sunlight-absorbing crystals. Photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight directly ...

X-rays reveal electron puddles in ceramic superconductors

Study advances understanding of high-temperature superconductivity


Using high-energy X-rays, an international team of scientists has discovered a surprising inner structure of a special class of superconductors: Within these so-called high-temperature superconductors, the electrons form puddles of varying sizes throughout the material. This finding helps to ...

A close-up view of materials as they stretch or compress


Materials scientists are busy developing advanced materials, while also working to squeeze every bit of performance out of existing materials. This is particularly true in the aerospace industry, where small advantages in weight or extreme temperature tolerance quickly translate into tremendous ...

Researchers combine disciplines, computational programs to determine atomic structure


A team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Indiana University combined two techniques to determine the structure of cyanostar, a new abiological molecule that captures unwanted negative ions in solutions. When Semin Lee, a chemist and Beckman Institute postdoctoral fellow at ...


Compact batteries enhanced by spontaneous silver matrix formations

Scientists use x-rays to map internal atomic transformations and advance promising lithium-based batteries


In a promising lithium-based battery, the formation of a highly conductive silver matrix transforms a material otherwise plagued by low conductivity. To optimize these multi-metallic batteries - and enhance the flow of electricity - scientists needed a way to see where, when, and how these ...


Agilent Technologies Opens New X-ray Diffraction Manufacturing Facility in Wroclaw, Poland


Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it has opened a new X-ray diffraction manufacturing facility in Wrocław, Poland. The state-of-the-art facility gives Agilent significantly greater manufacturing capacity and enhanced R&D capabilities compared with the company’s old facility. The new site has ...


PANalytical celebrates its 10th birthday


PANalytical is celebrating its 10th year in the industry. PANalytical arose from the acquisition of Philips Analytical by Spectris a decade ago, allowing the company to combine ‘The curiosity of youth with a century of experience’. PANalytical’s product range includes X-ray diffraction (XRD) ...


The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (RSAS) has awarded the Gregori Aminoff Prize in Crystallography 2013

Nature of crystals measured by X-rays and interpreted in Italy and Australia


The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (RSAS) has awarded the Gregori Aminoff Prize in Crystallography 2013 to Carlo Gatti, Institute of Molecular Sciences and Technology, Italian National Research Council, Milan, Italy and Mark Spackman, University of Western Australia, Crawley, Australia "for ...
