NANO beamline

nano Beamline

NANO at ANKA is a State of the Art beamline specialized for high-resolution x-ray diffraction, surface and interface X-ray scattering investigation.

The main applications:

  • Thin films and multilayers
  • Surfaces and interfaces
  • Nanostructures (2D and 3D) and nanomaterials
  • Real-Time Monitoring of growing Epitaxial thin film, Superlattice and Nano-particles
  • Characterization of shape, size, position and their correlations in nanostructures
  • Defect analysis in crystal structures
  • In-situ and ex-situ growth studies of crystals, organic and inorganic films
