Scattering and Thermophysics

The Scattering and Thermophysics Group aims to be a national leader in materials characterization using diffraction and thermophysical property measurement methods.

Research

The diffraction portion of the Group utilizes laboratory x-ray, synchrotron x-ray, and neutron diffraction facilties to solve problems from phase stability to residual stress and texture. The thermography and thermophysical properties of the Group has exceptional capabilities to characterize thermal properties for numerous industrial and research needs.

The thermophysical properties effort has developed several unique instruments for thermal transport determination and thermal imaging studies.
