Symposium CT03-Imaging Materials with X-Rays — Recent Advances with Synchrotron and Laboratory Sources
18 Apr 2021 - 23 Apr 2021 • Seattle, WA, United States
Materials Research Society (MRS)
The last decade has seen a tremendous evolution of x-ray imaging and microscopy. This has been driven by the rapid development of third and fourth generation x-ray facilities, as well as new laboratory sources and x-ray optics capable of producing beams routinely below 50 nm in size. The high penetrating power, extreme sensitivity of x-rays to strain and defects and the tunability of these new sources to access x-ray fluorescence of much of the periodic table has enabled in situ or operando studies of nano-scale properties materials. It is worth also emphasizing that small x-ray beams may also be used to induce an electrical current or light emission in the nano-object enabling enhanced scanning probe and photo excitation studies.Beyond a discussion of the methods which have been developed, and are still an object of active research (coherent diffraction imaging in forward or Bragg or full field imaging conditions, nano x-ray fluorescence imaging, micro-Laue diffraction …), this symposium aims to review the materials science issues that these new tools can help solving. The range of materials science topics and related applications is indeed very large: electronic and optoelectronic devices (including flexible devices), transport properties, photovoltaic applications, catalysis, energy harvesting and storage, and even structural materials.
X-Ray Imaging and Microscopy developments Coherent x-ray diffraction imaging Laue diffraction microscopy X-Ray fluorescence microscopy Full field diffraction x-ray microscopy Nano x-ray computed tomography Materials science utilizing the methods: Strain mapping and engineering Nanostructures (metals, oxides, semiconductors) In Situ or Operando studies Mechanical and transport properties Optoelectronic properties Bioinspired materials and biomimetics

The careful investigation of structural aspects at the surfaces and interfaces of these materials, in addition to more traditional metals, semiconductors and oxides, will be one of the foci of the conference. Other recent developments that will feature prominently are the extension of ultrafast experiments to the investigation of surface structures, the use of angle-resolved photoemission for structural investigations at surfaces, and the possibility to craft atomic and molecular structures with scanning probe microscopes which allows the creation of designer materials with tailored properties.
