Micro- and nanoscale structures within a material’s surface are invisible to the naked eye, but play a big role in determining a material’s physical, chemical, and biomedical properties. Over the past few years, Chunlei Guo and his research team at the University of Rochester have found ways to manipulate those structures by irradiating laser pulses to a material’s surface.
Successful ceramic manufacturing requires the correct identification of phases and an understanding of microstructure in starting powders and finished products.

Powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques can trace their origin to the pioneering work of Debye and Scherrer in Europe (1916) and Hull in the U.S. (1917).1 Their results dispelled the belief that grinding a single crystal to a powder would destroy crystallinity.
The Eplexor HT DMA operates at up to 1,500°C and forces up to 150 or 500 N.
