Sector 8: Overview

Experiments performed in the sector fall primarily into two areas:

  1. studies of dynamics by x-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS) or x-ray intensity fluctuation spectroscopy (XIFS)
  2. grazing-incidence small-angle-x-ray scattering (GISAXS) studies of the structure and kinetics of heterogeneous thin films
