    Project Description

    Conventional microscopic approaches to 3-D characterisation of the structure of materials are inevitably destructive and thus prohibit in-situ studies of dynamic behaviour. Emerging 3-D imaging techniques employing high energy x-ray diffraction permit such studies in samples representative of bulk behaviour, with nanoscale spatial resolution. This application seeks support to establish a state-of-the-art x-ray diffraction imaging facility that will allow us the development of novel techniques of high-resolution x-ray diffraction and imaging, and their application to the study of critical structure-property relationships in engineering materials where key structural elements range from a few microns to the nanoscale.
