LatticeAx Cleaving SmB6 at the Cavendish Lab
The LatticeAx supported a discovery that Dr. Suchitra Sebastian of the University's Cavendish Laboratory and her team of PhD students weren’t expecting. Their experiments that measured the electronic properties of samarium hexaboride (SmB6) revealed both insulating and conducting behaviours in the same material. The LatticeAx was the only way researchers could repeatedly and reliably create damage-free crystal facets, without material loss or waste, required for their studies. This groundbreaking research was first published in Science Magazine in July, 2015.
