Crafting Complex Materials to Solve the Mystery of MagnetismExternal link

In the quest to synthesize a useful material not found in nature, a team led by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory devised a multidimensional analysis approach that combines multiscale synthesis, characterization, and modeling techniques. With this approach, they obtained the first direct measurement of atomic-scale ordering in LMNO, a material of interest for thermoelectric applications. Read More »
