In-situ real-time x-ray scattering for probing the processing-structure-performance relation
Abstract© 2014 Materials Research Society. In-situ X-ray scattering methodology is discussed, in order to analyze the microstructure development of soft functional materials during coating, annealing, and drying processes in real-time. The relevance of a fundamental understanding of coating processes for future industrial production is pointed out.
SponsorsI am indebted to Aram Amassian and Ruipeng Li (KAUST, Saudi Arabia) as well asGaurav Giri and Zhenan Bao (Stanford) for the great collaboration in developing the in-situsolution shearing set-up. Many of the user groups at D1 station were involved in exploringsolvent vapor processing. Specifically I would like to thank Christine Papadakis (TechnicalUniversity Munich, Germany) and Tobias Hanrath (Cornell) for our long-standingcollaborations. Don Bilderback and Ernie Fontes (CHESS) are thanked for commenting on themanuscript. CHESS is supported by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutesof Health and General Medical Sciences via NSF award DMR-1332208. Equipment funding byKAUST is greatly appreciated.
