Abstract

3D X-Ray diffraction, or 3DXRD, is a new and powerful technique for use in material science. By combining both angular and spatial information, the analysis of micro-structures and their behavior has taken a leap forward. It has led to new understandings of grain growth, stress relationships, and grain-grain interactions. In this talk, an overview 3DXRD will be presented as well as its capabilities and how it has been advancing the field of material science.

Graduate Seminar Series

The seminar series consists of weekly talks designed and delivered by graduate students within the department. The goal of this project is to expose upper-level undergraduates to current physics research. The talks are aimed at the fourth-year level, but all are welcome and encouraged to attend.
