The Joint Photon Sciences Institute will hold its inaugural seminar on Tuesday, November 8, at 2 p.m. in the Physics Seminar Room S240, Stony Brook University. All are welcome. Ian Robinson of the London Centre for Nanotechnology, UCL and Research Complex at Harwell will talk on “Materials Analysis at Large-Scale Facilities.”

As Robinson will discuss, large-scale facilities, such as the new National Synchrotron Light Source II under construction at Brookhaven, open up opportunities for probing deeper into the physical properties of materials. Robinson will explain his group’s work in developing the coherent x-ray diffraction method, which is an effective way of imaging crystalline nanoparticles and nanostructures in three dimensions. Results observed from the methods they used explain why nanocrystals have a different “equation of state” from bulk condensed matter.
