Distorted reality: Revolving electron microscopy divulges material’s innermost atomic secrets

By April Gocha / February 17, 2015

Researchers at North Carolina State University have pioneered a new imaging method that is allowing them to peer inside a material’s atomic organization to precisely map the location of distortions, a unique perspective that is allowing them to see how those distortions affect the material’s properties.

3-D images provide insight to biomineralization process

By / December 28, 2009

Materials scientists continue to try to understand how biological systems are able to create superior crystalline materials such as the calcite found in sea shells, sea urchin spines and even algae. One group of these biomineralization investigators is led by Lara Estroff, a Cornell University assistant professor of materials science and engineering. She and her…
