Volume I in this series promised that the advent of third-generation light sources would enhance synchrotron-based materials research. This second volume fulfills the promise, featuring many experiments that required newer, higher-brightness sources, and could not have been performed with earlier vintage synchrotrons. The book focuses on the characterization of reduced dimensional systems, and highlights studies of surfaces, interfaces, polymers, glasses, thin films, magnetic materials, metal systems, multilayers and electronic materials. Topics include: thin films; magnetic materials; surfaces, clusters, quantum systems, and methods; interfaces (solid/solid, solid/liquid); layered compounds, alloys and novel materials; and microprobe, tomography and microscopy.
