X-ray scattering and spectroscopy methods can provide a wealth of information concerning the physical and electronic structure of crystalline and noncrystalline materials in a variety of external conditions and environments. X-ray powder diffraction, for example, is generally the first, and perhaps the most widely used, probe of crystal structure. Over the last 100 years, especially with the introduction of x-ray synchrotron sources during the last 35 years, x-ray techniques have expanded well beyond their initial role in structure determination.
This chapter explores the wide variety of applications of x-ray scattering and spectroscopy techniques to the study of materials.
