Overview

Hard x-ray microscopy provides powerful imaging and analytic capabilities at the Advanced Photon Source. Hard x-ray scanning nanoprobes provide elemental and chemical state analysis and characterization of local strain, texture and crystallographic phase. Full-field transmission microscopy provides high-resolution imaging in two and three dimensions in both absorption and phase contrast. Combined with polarized x-rays, both approaches can be used to study the magnetic state of specimens.

This workshop will discuss hard x-ray microscopy with particular emphasis on applications in materials sciences and nanosciences. Topics include complex oxides, magnetic materials, and bio-nano materials. A session will be dedicated to future x-ray optics and x-ray microscopes.
