'Scientists can now detect magnetic behavior at the atomic level with a new electron microscopy technique developed by a team from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Uppsala University, Sweden. The researchers took a counterintuitive approach by taking advantage of optical distortions that they typically try to eliminate.' New electron microscope method detects atomic-scale magnetism:
Insulation "performance" values of building with SIP panels verses a standard 6" wall. Note the energy efficiency of the "entire" wall assembley has been documented by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Entire wall means you take into account the energy losses for the structural members, corners, joints and around windows (it is not just about the insulation).
