Nanobeam X-Ray Scattering: Probing Matter at the Nanoscale

Front Cover
A comprehensive overview of the possibilities and potential of X-ray scattering using nanofocused beams for probing matter at the nanoscale, including guidance on the design of nanobeam experiments. The monograph discusses various sources, including free electron lasers, synchrotron radiation and other portable and non-portable X-ray sources.
For scientists using synchrotron radiation or students and scientists with a background in X-ray scattering methods in general.

About the author (2013)

Julian Stangl is working on the investigation of semiconductor nanostructures using x-ray scattering at Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria, where he also obtained his academic degrees. He has performed numerous experiments at synchrotron sources throughout Europe, and is developing nanobeam diffraction in collaboration with the European Synchrotron radiation facility in Grenoble, France. His received several scientific awards, including the Erich Schmid price of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

Cristian Mocuta is presently working at the French Synchrotron Facility, the 'Synchrotron SOLEIL' and is in charge of the microbeam approaches and their development, for diffraction (μXRD) but also complementary analysis by fluorescence and absorption spectrosopies (μ-XRF and/or μ-XAS). His scientific interest resides in the study of the properties of materials at local scale (μm and below) using mostly x-ray diffraction technique. He obtained his academic degrees at the Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France, then joined as a scientist the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) where he was involved in the development of a micro- / nano-diffraction setup.

Virginie Chamard is working on methodological developments of lens-less microscopy techniques at the Fresnel Institute in Marseille (France). Her concern is the imaging of nanocrystal structural properties at the local scale based on the inversion of intensity patterns obtained with coherent x-ray beams. After her academic degrees at the Grenoble University, she had some experiences at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility and in Germany. Her CNRS position allowed her to successively work with different groups in France, in Grenoble and Marseille and to develop collaborations in the field of coherent x-ray scattering.

Dina Carbone is currently working on the investigation of nanostructures using X-ray scattering techniques. After obtaining her degree at the Max-Plank-Institute for Metal-Research and the University of Stuttgart, Germany, she has started to work at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble, France, where she is now contributing, as beamline scientist, to the development of nano-beam methods and their application in material science.
