Latest Happenings at GSECARS
Kiyotaka Asakura, current Chair of the International X-ray Absorption Society, presents the Edward Stern Award for Outstanding Achievement award to GSE beamline scientist Matt Newville. Award was shared with Bruce Ravel (not pictured).
GSE beamline scientists Matt Newville and Tony Lanzirotti host the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering at 13 IDE, July 26th.
GSE beamline scientist Matt Newville presented a session at the LARCH Workshop, XAFS2022, ” The XAS Viewer application and Larch for X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy”.
High temperature (“hot”) [a] and quenched (“cold”) [b] integrated XRD patterns from burst heating run D1P2S3 (49-56 GPa), color-coded by temperature. Colored ticks below patterns identify reflections from hcp-Fe0.8Ni0.1Si0.1 (pink), fcc-Fe0.8Ni0.1Si0.1 (purple), and KCl (black). The sluggish fcc to hcp back-reaction can result in reflections from remnant fcc grains in patterns quenched from temperatures above the hcp-fcc transition.
