The ultrafast motions of atoms during chemical reactions are investigated theoretically and experimentally using x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy.
Nano-structured objects are imaged using an imaging modality based on small-angle x-ray scattering. This imaging modality is applied to medical imaging, for instance of liver cancers, as well as the imaging of nanomaterial structures and their chemical or physical transformations.
The upconversion of CO2 to feedstock for the chemical industry is studied electro-chemically using nano-structured electroytes.
