New Atom Probes at Colorado School of Mines

Recently added to an associated facility of the Renewable Energy MRSEC at the Colorado School of Mines are two advanced atom probe systems, both acquired through a recent NSF MRI development grant led by Professor Brian Gorman. Located in the Atom Probe Development Laboratory, the atom probes are being used to investigate materials atom by atom to speed deployment of advanced materials processing, and a new dynamic atom probe is under development that will be able to integrate atomic spatial and chemical resolution measurements with sub-ns temporal resolution for monitoring diffusion, phase transformations, and crystallization processes.
