Overview of Research Group, Goals and Purposes:

The goal of this group is to exchange information and discussion on the advanced utilization of SPring-8 with respect to @`C which are important subjects for present and future researches on thin-film and/or surface structures of organic and polymeric materials: @ new experimental methods utilizing a next-generation light source of SPring-8 II, A advanced measurement and data-analysis methods for complimentary utilization of several beamlines, B experimental technique for researches on hierarchical structure dynamics / kinetics and C X-ray imaging technique. The member of this group may be interested in the following methods: grazing-incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXD), grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS), X-ray reflectivity (XR), X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS), X-ray imaging methods, a various kind of spectroscopic methods (infrared (IR) spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS)) and so on.
