Mitchell Kennedy from the Bhatia Lab publishes research on the in situ mineralization of calcium phosphate nanocomposites in block copolymer hydrogels in the Wiley Journal, Polymers for Advanced Technologies. (Learn more)
Monty Cosby from the Khalifah Lab writes python code that enables on-the-fly Rietveld refinement of X-ray diffraction data during synchrotron powder diffraction experiments as well as the automated plotting and fitting of refinement parameters. This allows reaction rate data to be monitored in real time during experiments (rather than weeks or months later, as was previously the case) and the experiment design to be dynamically changed and optimized based on this analysis. This new program was successfully used to guide in situ ion-exchange experiments at the APS synchrotron in October 2020.
