Future accelerator projects, including the high-luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider, will rely on niobium–tin (Nb3Sn) alloys for their superconducting components, such as electromagnets. The higher superconducting abilities of this material will be key in increasing the performances of our discovery machines, but stringent tests are necessary to demonstrate the resilience of niobium–tin components, as the alloy is known to be more brittle than niobium–titanium, of which current LHC components are made.

19:43 Phys.org Surface modification of high-volume micro-nanoparticles with atomic accuracy

Surface modification of micro-nanoparticles at the atomic and close-to-atomic scales is of great importance to their applications in a variety of fields, such as energy storage, catalysis, sensors, and biomedicine. In order to meet the industry requirements in these areas, it is urgently necessary to develop high-volume manufacturing of atomically precise coatings on particulate materials. As an advanced extreme manufacturing method, atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a thin film deposition method which offers pinhole-free films with precise thickness control at the angstrom level and exceptional homogeneity on complex structures. Fluidized bed ALD (FB-ALD) has shown great potential in atomically ultrathin films on large amounts of particles.
