X-ray physics group
By adapting and developing novel advanced X-ray Scattering and Imaging techniques, we study functional and structural materials ranging from metals and alloys to soft materials like polymers and liquid crystals.
The in-house X-ray laboratories comprise diffraction, small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), radiography and tomography setups that are part of Norwegian Centre for X-ray diffraction, scattering and imaging (RECX). RECX is funded by The Research Council of Norway.
Infrastructures the research group utilizes
The Research group are frequent users of these synchrotron radiation facilities
- The European Synchrotron (ESRF). The ESRF facility is a joint research facility situated in Grenoble, France.
- Swiss Light Source (SLS). SLS at Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) is a third-generation synchrotron light source.
- MAX IV Laboratory. Swedish national laboratory providing scientists with the most brilliant X-rays for research.
- Diamond Light Source. The UK's national synchrotron science facility.
Norwegian Centre for X-ray Diffraction, Scattering and Imaging (RECX). Two of the leading X-ray groups in Norway are working together to form a single national platform for advanced X-ray research.
