Nanoscale crystal grain characterization via linear polarization X-ray ptychography

Author affiliations

Abstract

X-ray linear dichroism and X-ray birefringence microscopy are yet to be fully utilized as instruments in the microstructural characterization of crystalline materials. Here, we demonstrate analyser-free X-ray linear dichroism microscopy using spectroscopic hard X-ray ptychography. First experiments enabled a spectroscopic and microstructural characterisation of polycrystalline vanadium pentoxide on the nanoscale, outside of diffraction-contrast based methods.
