Dr. Reich and Dr. Wilson — Materials Science project

A team of researchers from NC State, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and NIST, including Brian Reich and Alyson Wilson, recently published a fundamental advance in materials science that will allow researchers to use advanced statistical techniques to derive more complete information about the crystallographic structure of materials from existing experimental techniques. In a paper published August 23 in Scientific Reports, a Nature publication, the team shows how to use Bayesian inference to better describe the variability and uncertainty in a material’s structure.
