Synchrotron X-ray Techniques for Industrial Research

Examples of how the major synchrotron techniques of scattering, spectroscopy, and imaging were applied at the original NSLS synchrotron facility to problems of industrial importance.


Imaging uses the intense x-ray beam to obtain structural pictures of the sample with fine spatial resolution and chemical information in diverse research areas to image everything from biological cells to semiconductor chips and fuel cells.


Dynamics perform spectroscopy, scattering, and imaging measurements as a function of time to study structural and electronic changes in the material.
