Which is the resolution of the XRD characterization that can be achieved with the Bragg Edge Tomography? For example, can we distinguish between calcite and magnesite that have the same structure and similar lattice parameters?
Thanks for your question. In order to distinguish between two minerals with the same structure, the neutron cross section of the different atoms (in this case Ca and Mg) have to be significantly different. For calcite and magnetite, they should be different enough to resolve.

Unresolved question from Audience: What pressure can we achieve with our sample environments?
Up to 1500 psi at room temperature.
