Strain Makes Excellent ‘Control Knob’ for Defect Engineering

Crystal defects such as missing oxygen ions in transition-metal oxides can lead to potentially useful material properties. X-ray studies at the Advanced Light Source have helped open up a promising route to designing and controlling oxygen-vacancy-type defects through the systematic application of coherent tensile strain.
