UDaily: Intense X-ray technology sheds new light on dynamics of how minerals, fluids interact

It's often true that to get to the bottom of big problems or understand massive systems, you have to go deep into the details.

When those details are the size of atoms and molecules, it takes special equipment and extraordinary precision to get what you're after.

A new study by a team including University of Delaware researcher Neil Sturchio and his colleagues at the Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Illinois at Chicago has given scientists an unprecedented look at such detail, showing how minerals and fluids interact in extreme conditions.
