Tech Talk on ESFR front page
DirectSpea research has won a Tech Talk news on ESFR public front page entitled One-dimensional imaging of curved surfaces using spatially resolved X-ray reflectivity
At ID10 a new XRR approach exploits sample curvature to visualise and analyse patches of 2D materials during their growth on curved surfaces. This methodology has been successfully applied to molten copper covered by a graphene layer grown by chemical vapor deposition (CVD). The method allows in-situ, real-time monitoring of growth kinetics, offering insights into the interfacial structure of the individual flakes at growth conditions hardly accessible by other methods.
