Abstract

The orientation of surface bound proteins may play an important role in the function and properties of materials to which they are adsorbed. Near edge absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) is a technique which allows the user to determine the presence of specific bonds and the orientation of those bonds in relation to the surface. The average orientation of certain bonds can be used to determine the overall orientation of molecules (e.g. proteins) comprised of those bonds.
