Breakthrough research performed by Ashley Bucsek

Ashley Bucsek, BeamTeam PhD candidate, performed the first-ever dark-field X-ray diffraction measurements on shape memory alloys at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, France. The video clips below show that she was able to capture subgrain microstructure features, including dislocations nucleating from carbide interfaces. The “Rocking at high temp” video above shows the sample being rocked at high […]
