X-ray Laue Diffraction Microscopy in 3D at 34-ID-E, APS

Welcome to 34-ID-E!

The Laue diffraction microscopy at 34-ID uses the polychromatic Laue micro-diffraction technique to examine the structure of materials with sub-micron spatial resolution in all three dimensions. Properties that can be measured include local crystallographic orientations, orientation gradients and strains.

The science area brings together a very large and scientifically diverse community with interests in materials deformation processes, recrystallization, electromigration, solid-solution precipitation, high pressure environments, and condensed matter physics.
