Total scattering

Comments

Analysis of diffuse scattering on a par with Bragg scattering, popularly known as total scattering approach, utilizing X-ray, neutron and electron diffraction, is instrumental in characterizing the local and intermediate range structure of complex functional materials. As such, it is applicable to a diverse class of problems in contemporary material science, solid state chemistry and condensed matter physics. Advanced instrumentation in synergy with large scale computational tools unlock unprecedented insights into the world of materials and devices fostering their thorough understanding and optimization. With the development of experimental tools more advanced total scattering based techniques are emerging, such as time resolved, dynamic, magnetic, computed tomography, thin film and surface pair distribution function (PDF) approaches, as well as 3D-dPDF utilizing single crystal diffraction to map out in detail the reciprocal space. This microsymposium aims at the cross-section of state-of-the-art of total scattering and associated achievements on the complex materials frontier.
