Project Description

This Proposal aims to reveal the 3D nanostructure of disordered matter with x-rays for the first time. Existing x-ray
scattering techniques for disordered structures currently provide limited 1D information only. The expected
outcomes of the Project include an enhanced new capability for the Australian Synchrotron and international x-ray
laser facilities, and new insights into the microscopic origins of the properties of liquids and biological membranes.
This should benefit research areas that use x-ray scattering to probe the nanostructure of materials for diverse
applications such as nanotechnology, fuel cells and drug design.
