2018 MRS Spring Meeting, Symposium CM3: Investigating Nanostructures with X-Rays—Fundamentals and Applications, Phoenix, Arizona, 2-6 April
The last decade has seen a tremendous evolution of X-ray imaging and microscopy. This has been driven by the rapid development of third and fourth generation X-ray facilities and X-ray optics capable of producing coherent beams routinely below 100 nm in size. The high penetrating power, extreme sensitivity of X-rays to strain and defects and the tunability of these new sources to access X-ray fluorescence of much of the periodic table has enabled in situ or operando studies of nano-scale properties materials. It is worth also emphasizing that small X-ray beams may also be used to induce an electrical current or light emission in the nano-object enabling enhanced scanning probe and photo excitation studies.
Beyond a discussion of the methods which have been developed, and are still an object of active research (coherent diffraction imaging in forward or Bragg conditions, nano X-ray fluorescence imaging, micro-Laue diffraction …), this symposium aims to disseminate knowledge of these new tools to a broader community of materials scientists.
