Nanodiffraction at ID11: the case of asbestos fibres


Dr Carlotta Giacobbe from ESRF, France


The advent of high-brightness synchrotron sources and improvements in X-ray focusing optics has enabled new techniques for mineralogical investigations with nanometre spatial resolution.

At ID11, the Materials Science beamline at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), a new end station, the “nanoscope”, has recently been built to provide real-space maps of the local lattice structure, crystal orientation and grain morphology, together with a classical diffraction and fluorescence approach. The study of asbestos fibers is a scientific case than can benefit of this unique setup.
