Transient grating measurements are an excellent tool for studying the elastic and thermal transport properties of micron-thin material layers. Interference of two short pump laser beams generates a spatially periodic […]
Nuclear fusion has the potential to provide a sustainable, environmentally friendly, reliable energy source. One of the main obstacles to commercial fusion energy is the availability of sufficiently resilient materials. […]
Atomic scale defects play a key role in determining the mechanical and physical properties of material systems. In metals and alloys, defects such as dislocations control deformation and failure behaviour; […]
High Energy Transmission Laue (HETL) is a new synchrotron X-ray diffraction technique we have recently developed. It allows the lattice distortion of individual grains within polycrystalline engineering components to be […]

Micro-beam Laue alignment of multi-reflection Bragg coherent diffraction imaging measurements F Hofmann, NW Phillips, RJ Harder, W Liu, JN Clark, IK Robinson, B Abbey Journal of Synchrotron Radiation 24, 5 (2017) […]
Congratulations to James Turton and Tom deSousa for winning prizes at the annual Department of Engineering Science Lubbock Day. James was awarded the Sony prize for the best electrical and […]
Felix enjoyed catching up with colleagues and hearing about lots of new science at the APS User Meeting at Argonne National Lab in Chicago.
3D Lattice Distortions and Defect Structures in Ion-Implanted Nano-Crystals F Hofmann, E Tarleton, RJ Harder, NW Phillips, P-W Ma, JN Clark, IK Robinson, B Abbey, W Liu, CE Beck Scientific […]
Felix gave a whistle-stop tour of X-ray micro-diffraction and imaging at the EBSD 2017 conference. He also learnt a lot about electron diffraction and the many exciting things happening in […]
Felix has just been awarded a grant from the John Fell Fund to help buy a double tilt rotate TEM holder for 3D defect imaging.
Felix had an exciting few days at MRS Fall in Boston. There was a great set of talks in the Materials Research and Design for A Nuclear Renaissance symposium. It […]
