The Bragg Coherent Diffraction Imaging (BCDI) method will be discussed for its abilities for in-situ imaging of energy materials.  BCDI’s greatest strength is to reveal 3D phase-contrast images of the interiors of crystals with image resolution in the 30nm range.  It achieves this through the projection of lattice displacements onto the diffraction Q-vector, showing up as a phase shift on a very sensitive scale: one lattice constant results in a phase shift of 2π.  Using this new channel of information about the detailed structures of crystals, we have found striking patterns of phase nano-domains within otherwise solid-looking crystals of micron dimension.  Since almost all materials are made up of microcrystals, this method has wide application in materials science and engineering and lies at the heart of a case for a new beamline at NSLS-II.

The presentation will discuss various materials studied by BCDI: domains introduced in Au by interdiffusion of Cu, faulted misfit domains on the surface of Au induced by Fe diffusion, insect virus crystals, SAPO-34 zeolite catalyst crystals and the Perovskite La0.5Ca0.5MnO3 (LCMO). Some of these images are shown below.
