Using Very Small-scale Experiments to Investigate Materials: The 21st Century Direction in Basic Pu Research?
Description: Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have developed several techniques to probe the properties of Plutonium using tiny microgram-to-milligram samples. This commentary describes the advantages of this experimental approach, and contains examples of successful experimental setups. One motivation for such experiments is that they couple well to computational simulations of electronic and atomistic properties and processes, and examples of this coupling are discussed.
