Pyrochlore 200 x 145
Mathematical insights explain inconsistencies in experimental data: pyrochlore transformation into defect fluorite or not? 05/09/2017

An ANSTO researcher has co-authored a novel theoretical approach to explain inconsistencies between crystallographic and chemical experimental data in the apparent transformation of a pyrochlore to defect fluorite.

Bendable knot
X-rays used to understand atomic structure of bendable crystals 29/08/2017

Queensland researchers have shown that single crystals, typically thought of as brittle and inelastic, are flexible enough to be bent repeatedly and even tied in a knot.

Taylor Glacier 200 x 145
Man-made fossil emissions larger than previously believed 24/08/2017

An international group of researchers who included ANSTO environmental scientists, report two important findings regarding methane, a powerful greenhouse gas and large contributor to global warming.

Figure 3 thumbnail - Experimental evidence of quantum spin
Experimental evidence of quantum spin liquid explained by Kitaev theoretical model 26/07/2017

Inelastic neutron scattering (INS) has provided experimental evidence that the two dimensional material, alpha ruthenium trichloride, α-RuCl3 is a strong candidate for a quantum spin liquid (QSL) that fits the Kitaev theoretical model.


Nuclear science helps prove earliest Aboriginal occupation 21/07/2017

Scientists at the ANSTO's Centre for Accelerator Science and Australian Synchrotron were part of a team who have found new proof of the earliest occupation in Australia.
