MADISON - As scientists and engineers build devices at smaller and smaller scales, grasping the dynamics of how materials behave when they are subjected to electrical signals, sound and other manipulations has proven to be beyond the reach of standard scientific techniques.
But now a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers has found a way to time such effects at the nanometer ......Full article >>>
at ability, in turn, promises a more detailed understanding - and potential manipulation - of the properties of those materials.
The Wisconsin work was accomplished using Argonne National Laboratory's Advanced Photon Source, a synchrotron light source capable of generating very tightly focused beams of X-rays. The Wisconsin researchers, in a group led by materials science and engineering ......Full article >>>

In addition to Evans, Eom, and Grigoriev, authors of the Physical Review Letters paper include Dal-Hyun Do and Dong Min Kim of UW-Madison; and Bernhard Adams and Eric M. Dufresne of Argonne National Laboratory.
