LightMAT Capabilities

The LightMAT resource network contains capabilities from the U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratory system. This search function enables you to view and filter these capabilities within LightMAT.
 
Many of the capabilities listed on this page are user facilities managed by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science. Each user facility has established processes for submitting a proposal and gaining access. Visit http://science.energy.gov/user-facilities/user-resources/getting-started for more information.

Capability National Lab Description
In-Situ Deformation Testing of Light Weight Materials Los Alamos National Laboratory LANL can perform tensile testing in selected regions of a microstructure to obtain insight on local deformation and failure modes. Using electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), focused ion beam (FIB...
In Situ Characterization of Processing Los Alamos National Laboratory Proton, neutron, and x-ray probes are used for real-time process monitoring of phase transformations and microstructural evolution. As part of this capability, Los Alamos National Laboratory can...
Nanoscale In Situ Mechanical Testing Stage Los Alamos National Laboratory Mechanical properties unattainable via bulk testing can be explored and quantified with small-scale testing. For example, mechanical behavior of individual interfaces, small-scale particles, and low...
