An international research collaboration led by scientists at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has explained a long-standing thermodynamic inconsistency in the formation of a class of metallic glass that may lead to the development of new, better metallic alloys.
Our 19th proposal round closed last night, with 218 proposals across 14 cold- and thermal-neutron instruments, and 35 proposals for Chemical- and Bio-Deuteration at the National Deuteration Facility. Excluding existing approved programs and the mail-in system on ECHIDNA, 1214 beam days have been requested.
In a recent publication in the open access journal Scientific Reports, researchers from the University of New South Wales use the SANS instrument QUOKKA to understand the assembly of two diphenylalanine-peptide-based hydrogels into structures, turning their attention to both the process of assembly and the structure of the final gel.
