Impact and Customers:
Globally, more than 50,000 scientists each year employ synchrotron X-ray measurements to characterize materials and devices for a broad spectrum of applications. The continuous development of X-ray measurement technology with increased spatial and energy resolution will have a broad impact on many
A 3-D chemical imaging detector with nanoscale resolution that will be broadly applicable to the semiconductor industry is being developed in collaboration with
R. Browning Associates through a NIST Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant.
NIST has enabled advances in X-ray detector technology by designing detectors with greater sensitivity and selectivity than those commercially available and
working with detector manufacturers through SBIR grants to produce such detectors. Synchrotron facilities worldwide have adopted these detectors.
