Neutron diffraction experiments of materials with structures comprising multiple metal elements

Materials containing multiple metal elements are important for various applications as the combination of different metal cations provides new or enhanced properties, which cannot be obtained through the use of just one metal. A recent study involving neutron diffraction experiments has enabled the development of a new general strategy to produce complex materials with metal cation arrangements that can be virtually controlled on demand for desired applications; a result that will be of great importance in various fields.
