Complex droplet and film formation dynamics were inferred, and the resulting film structure was observed using optical microscopy, atomic force microscopy, near-edge x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy, and grazing incidence x-ray diffraction.
Techniques which have been transformed with the use of synchrotron radiation include: X-ray absorption spectroscopies such as Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) and Near-edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (NEXAFS) of solids (crystalline or amorphous), liquids and solution, gases, surfaces, and interfaces; Photoelectron and Auger spectroscopy of gases, solids and surfaces; X-ray diffraction (XRD) of solids (powders, single crystals, non-crystalline materials) including small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) from polymers, composites, and biological materials.
Finally, the U7A station, which is also a joint effort, utilizes x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (XPS) and near-edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) to study the structure and chemical nature of diverse materials from a surface and bulk perspective either in vacuum or under atmospheric reaction conditions.
