- X-ray fluorescence holography
X-ray Fluorescence Holography (XFH) is a relatively new technique that benefits greatly from the coherent high-power
X-rays available from synchrotronsources, such as the Japanese SPring-8facility.
Fluorescent X-rays are scattered by
atomsin a sample and provide the object wave, which is referenced to non-scattered X-rays. A holographicpattern is recorded by scanning a detector around the sample, which allows researchers to investigate the local 3D structure around a specific element in a sample.
It is useful for investigating the effects of
irradiationon high temperature superconductors.
