We studied at the molecular level the interaction between neutral detergent Triton X-100 aqueous solution and a phospholipid Langmuir monolayer deposited on top using surface pressure measurement and grazing incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXD). Macroscopically, the detergent-phospholipid system follows the Gibbs law. However, GIXD shows that the detergent(More)
1 reports on the first successful combination of micro Laue (mLaue) diffraction with an atomic force microscope for in situ nanomechanical tests of individual nanostructures. In situ three-point bending on self-suspended gold nanowires was performed on the BM32 beamline at the ESRF using a specially designed atomic force microscope. During the bending(More)
As the length scale of sample dimensions is reduced to the micron and sub-micron scales, the strength of various materials has been observed to increase with decreasing size, a fact commonly referred to as the 'sample size effect'. In this work, the influence of temperature on the sample size effect in copper is investigated using in situ microcompression(More)
The relevance of micro Laue diffraction tomography (m-LT) to investigate heterogeneous polycrystalline materials has been studied. For this purpose, a multiphase solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) electrode composite made of yttria-stabilized zirconia and nickel oxide phases, with grains of about a few micrometres in size, has been analyzed. In order to calibrate(More)
