Nanostructures studied by X-ray diffraction - Part 1

Since more than a century x-ray diffraction (XRD) is a well-established Nobel prize winning tool in physics and chemistry to analyze the atomic structure of solids. Although primarily used as a bulk probe, the availability of Synchrotron radiation and brilliant laboratory X-ray sources made it possible to study nanostructures and crystal surfaces also. In this presentation, I will outline the principles of XRD in general and the peculiarities of its application to nanostructures especially in view of recent achievements in laboratory XRD instrumentation.

Due to the Corona restrictions only a limited number of participants will have access to the lecture hall. For all other participants we intend to offer an online stream of the lecture. Details will follow soon.
