Diffraction Notes

Lambda Research, the materials laboratory portion of Lambda Technologies Group, has been publishing Diffraction Notes since 1987. Each issue details research and valuable information coming from our materials lab. If you want to learn details about residual stress measurement, crystallographic texture determination, fatigue strength, phase analysis or retained austenite, Diffraction Notes are a great educational resource. Sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page to be one of the first to know about our research.
