Synopsis: Information on shape, size distribution, as well as surface structure and defects in Pd nanocrystals is obtained by combining X-ray diffraction line profile analysis with transmission electron microscopy and surface electrochemistry.
Synopsis: The high-resolution temperature-dependent diffuse X-ray scattering from an Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3 perovskite-based single crystal is measured on the approach to the polymorphic phase transition. The previously unseen topological features of the diffuse scattering and their temperature evolution are reported.
Synopsis: Light scattering and small-angle scattering data indicate that for globular proteins the relation between molecular weight and radius of gyration follows a power law which can be related to the fractal dimension of the proteins.
Synopsis: Evidence is presented that water outgassing from polyimide (Kapton HN-type) capillaries at temperatures as low as 438 K causes the overgrowth of supported Pt catalysts.
Synopsis: Resolution- and temperature-dependent factors such as thermal diffuse scattering can lead to significant errors in charge density studies. The influence on the model of the crystal structure is shown and a simple empirical correction is proposed.
Synopsis: The analysis of absolute small-angle X-ray scattering measurements reveals that the temperature-dependent density of the liquid-like amorphous phase enclosed between crystalline layers in semicrystalline polyethylene is crystallinity independent and lower than melt-extrapolated values.
Synopsis: Depolarized dynamic light scattering is applied to distinguish between nucleation and amorphous cluster formation in protein solutions during crystallization.
Synopsis: Profex is a platform-independent open-source graphical user interface for the Rietveld refinement program BGMN.
Synopsis: On the basis of simulations, a theoretical concept for the evaluation of strongly inhomogeneous residual stress depth gradients by means of the stress scanning method is presented. Simulations for very small gauge volumes are presented for the energy-dispersive case of diffraction.
Synopsis: On the basis of the continuum theory of micromagnetics, the correlation function of the spin-misalignment small-angle neutron scattering cross section of bulk ferromagnets is computed and discussed.
