Tuesday publication update! In this recent publication, the #FusionAX system was used to directly observe crystallization processes at glass-glass interfaces in sputtered CuZr thin film nanoglasses.

The authors utilizing in situ heating experiments combined with other interesting techniques such as nanobeam diffraction patterns (NBDP) and electron correlation microscopy (ECM). This powerful combination allowed them to capture real-time relaxation dynamics within the nanoglass structure.

The findings highlight a fascinating correlation between excess volume and nucleation kinetics on a microscopic scale. Notably, the interfaces between different glass regions exhibit increased excess volume, actively promoting the initiation of crystal nucleation.

Understanding these nuanced dynamics at such a precise scale opens doors to tailor-made materials design and engineering applications, paving the way for innovative advancements in various industries.
