Coherent diffraction continues to develop into a mature technique capable of imaging single nanoparticles and thin film grains in a variety of environments. Its unique sensitivity to structural perturbations, and in particular dislocations, has made it the premier imaging tool for crystalline specimens with sizes of 100 nm to 1 micron. In this talk, I will initially review coherent diffraction in both Bragg and transmission geometries and then spend the majority of the time on applications of the techniques to two materials science systems that share many similarities in their underlying thermodynamics: advanced battery cathodes and hydrogen storage materials. The ultimate goal of this talk is to open new collaborations to address important outstanding questions in physics, chemistry, and materials science.
