"The perfect atomic lattice," the announcement gushed.
This displacement creates additional atomic movement on its track that may result in a cluster of defects into the atomic lattice. The immediate and long-term results of ionization and atomic displacement strongly depend on the material.
As for boosting precision relatively modestly by bringing today's atomic lattice clocks into ultraviolet or even X-ray domains, several technical hurdles stand in the way.
The microwave property of M-type doped Ba-ferrites is dependent on their magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy, and that is dependent on the atomic lattice anisotropy of these ferrites.
However, in any atomic lattice, not all the space between the atoms is occupied.
When a lithium-ion battery supplies electricity, lithium ions flow into empty sites in the atomic lattice.
By scanning a semiconductor with ultrafast X-ray pulses, scientists have directly observed its atomic lattice yielding to disorder.
