Description: ALS/CXRO Seminar Series:

"X-Rays at Small Angles"
Presented by Alain Gibaud

Wednesday July 10 @ 12:30pm, 15-253 Conf Room

X-rays at small angles are among non destructive techniques one of the best tools to investigate materials at the nanometer scale. Such techniques have greatly benefited from the development of new synchrotron beam lines. The most efficient techniques utilised at small angles are typically:

-X-ray reflectivity
-Small Angle x-ray Scattering (SAXS)
-Grazing Incidence Small Angle x-ray scattering (GISAXS).

These techniques are nowadays even readily available at home facilities. Nevertheless they are undoubtedly more performing when practiced at synchrotron beam lines. The aim of my presentation is to give an overview of these techniques and to illustrate how they can be used to study some nanomaterials such as mesostructured materials resulting from the self-assembly of surfactants.
