The Toyota beamline (BL33XU) at SPring-8 is an undulator beamline developed to assist in the study of various automotive-related materials. The light source is a tapered in-vacuum undulator that provides a variable energy band width as well as a high brilliance X-ray beam. Two different optical arrangements are available: Optics 1 and Optics 2. Optics 1 is dedicated to time-resolved X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAFS), and consists of two channel-cut crystal monochromators and four water… Expand

In Situ Observation of Crystal Grain Orientation During Scuffing Process of Steel Surface Using Synchrotron X-ray Diffraction
Scuffing is a catastrophic failure that causes significant surface damages such as plastic flow and welding with a marked increase in friction, wear, temperature and noise. In this study, variationsExpand
Revisiting LiCoO2 Using a State-of-the-Art In Operando Technique.
A critical Li extraction content is found that satisfied the need for both high capacity and cyclability for Li(LiδCo1- δ)O2-δ, which can be applied to other layered materials. Expand
Intragranular three-dimensional stress tensor fields in plastically deformed polycrystals
An x-ray method for mapping the intragranular stresses in a polycrystalline material is developed and surprisingly large stresses are found, which are important for the fundamental understanding of how these materials will fail. Expand
