Atomic and nuclear spectroscopy

Basic and applied studies relying on x-ray emission spectroscopy are complemented with related methodologies. The main areas involved are: interaction of radiation with matter; synchrotron radiation; materials characterization through conventional X-Ray Fluorescence, as well as grazing angle and high resolution techniques; electron probe microanalysis; small-angle x-ray and neutron scattering; x-ray diffraction; electron backscatter diffraction; inelastic x-ray scattering; x-ray imaging; applications to positron lifetime spectroscopy.
