Ken Natesan examines an example of corroded alloy and a new alloy created by his team at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory. Natesan and his colleagues determined the corrosion was caused when carbon-bearing molecules slipped through the alloy's oxide defenses through metal nanoparticles.
Argonne scientists discover networks of metal nanoparticles are culprits in alloy corrosion

New alloy composition could cut costs for petrochemical industry

Jörg Maser (left) and Robert Winarski, CNM X-Ray Microscopy Group, prepare an experiment at the Hard X-ray Nanoprobe Beamline at the Advanced Photon Source. The nanoprobe uses brilliant X-rays with photon energies from 3 to 30 keV to probe the properties of nanoscale materials with a spatial resolution of 30 nm. The system provides a combination of scanning-probe and full-field transmission imaging.
