Synchrotron X-ray measurements in a synergetic combination with neutron and electron diffraction experiments for investigating “hyper-ordered structures”. Our first mission in the project is the development of a synchrotron high-throughput element-specific instrument for the measurement of atomic structure in complex materials over multiple length-scales.
We will work on complex systems like disordered materials and dopants under extreme conditions like high temperature and high pressure, by utilizing instrumentations for very small amounts of samples and very small area. Moreover, we are going to pursue synergetic cooperation with other groups to develop the methodology to determine “hyper-ordered structure” by establishing the concept of “hyper-ordered structure”. Our ultimate goal is the fabrication of novel hyper-structure materials by controlling “hyper-ordered structures” with the assistance of high temperature and high pressure.
We are going to measure “hyper-ordered structure” in samples synthesized by A01 sample team in a collaboration with A02-2 electronic structure group and try to understand “hyper-ordered structure” in a synergetic collaboration with A03 theory group to establish the matured concept of “hyper-ordered structure”. Finally, we are going to take on the challenge of fabricating novel hyper-structure materials by controlling “hyper-ordered structure” with the assistance of high temperature and high pressure.
