Machine learning algorithm reveals long-theorized glass phase in crystal

Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory, along with collaborators from Cornell University and Stanford University, have discovered the long-theorized Bragg glass phase in crystals. Using advanced X-ray scattering and machine learning algorithms, they identified the unique structure of Bragg glass, which combines the ordered properties of crystals with the disordered attributes of glasses. This discovery, published in Nature Physics, advances understanding in materials science and could impact various industries, including electronics and aerospace.
