New acoustic technique reveals structural information in nanoscale materials

A new nondestructive technique has been developed for investigating phase transitions in materials by examining the acoustic response at the nanoscale. Information obtained from this technique -- which uses electrically-conductive atomic force microscope (AFM) probes -- could guide efforts to design materials with enhanced properties at small size scales.
