Metals Challenged by Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation Metals Challenged by Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation

The journal Metals (ISSN 2075-4701) is calling for papers for a special issue on “Metals Challenged by Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation”. The deadline for manuscript submissions is 30 November 2015.

In the past decade, neutron and synchrotron radiation techniques have come to the forefront as an excellent set of tools for the investigation of materials structure and properties. This holds true, especially for metals.

The goal of this Special Issue is to compile a broad range of state-of-the-art contributions in this field into a single collection. Gathering reviews of diffraction and scattering methods, data reconstruction and combined modeling, as well as applications on particular metallic systems, such as titanium aluminides, magnesium, steels, nuclear metals, etc., is of interest.

This Special Issue also seeks detailed and accurate case-studies on individual systems. Research fields of interest will range from engineering, through materials design to fundamental materials science. I wish to suggest non-exclusively, strain scanning, texture analysis, phase transformation, precipitation, microstructure reconstruction, crystal defects, atomic structures (both crystalline and amorphous), order and disorder, kinetics, time resolved microstructure evolution, local structure correlations, phonons, deformation and transformation mechanisms, response to extreme conditions, local and integrated studies, in bulk and at interfaces. Techniques will be mainly based on neutrons and synchrotron X-rays, and may be complemented by other quantum beams, such as electron diffraction, muon spectroscopy, and microscopic techniques. Advanced techniques include high-energy X-ray diffraction, microbeam techniques, X-ray microscope, materials oscilloscope, coherent beam scattering, three-dimensional X-ray diffraction, texture analysis, in-situ studies, time resolved, pump-probe techniques, neutron and X-ray spectroscopy, quantitative phase analysis, peak profile analysis, to mention but a few.
