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
Laser Ultrasonics Idaho National Laboratory Laser ultrasonics can provide micron- to nanometer-scale elastic property information commensurate with microstructure heterogeneity. Examples include monitoring recrystallization at high...
Laser Based Micron Level Thermal Property Measurement Idaho National Laboratory Idaho National Laboratory uses a thermoreflectance approach to simultaneously measure thermal conductivity and diffusivity with micron-level resolution. This experimental information, in tandem with...
Non-destructive Characterization: Quantitative X-ray Computed Technology Idaho National Laboratory Idaho National Laboratory has a variety of X-ray imaging systems capable of non-destructive three-dimensional (3D) imaging of objects and materials. These systems vary significantly in size and...
Casting Foundry Aluminum Alloy Design Idaho National Laboratory At a customer's request, Idaho National Laboratory can design novel foundry aluminum alloys that possess excellent castability, molten metal fluidity, resistance to hot solidification cracking,...
Aluminum Alloy Phase Equilibria, Thermodynamic Properties, and Microstructure Idaho National Laboratory Idaho National Laboratory has the required computational tools and expertise (VASP, LAMMPS, GIBBS, PHONON, THERMO-CALC, DICTRA, and PRISMA) that enable designing different aluminum alloy tempers for...
