Radial diffraction in DAC: elastic anisotropy, strain and
stress, yield strength, preferred orientation etc.
One key goal of the workshop:
Sharing the experience from experts in DAC radial
diffraction. DAC design, gasket optimization, sample
preparation, data collection and analysis.
Develop the challenging project of rheological studies:
Combining different heating methods with radial
Gasket techniques: Be, (Kapton, amorphous boron,
and epoxy), others;
Theoretical modeling and analysis improvement;
New techniques: rotational DAC and dynamic DAC.
Benefit to COMPRES Community
1. Pushing the technological frontier of rheology
study in DAC;
2. Broadening the COMPRES community access to
the DAC radial diffraction.
The experts of DAC design, beamline scientists, structural refinement
experts, rheology experts and potential users will assemble together
to determine the way to coordinate the above efforts efficiently.
Infrastructure proposal: “Rheology in DAC” (tentative title) will be
submitted to COMPRES by a cooperative, multi-institutional team
based on the discussions and feedbacks in this workshop
Location: HPCAT, Advanced Photon Source, Argonne
Time: 2-day workshop before November, 2005
Beamtime: 2-shift hand-on experiments at ID-B and
BM-D stations of HPCAT
