- ItemDelayed crystallization of ultrathin Gd2O3 layers on Si(111) observed by in situ X-ray diffraction(London : BioMed Central, 2012) Hanke, Michael; Kaganer, Vladimir M.; Bierwagen, Oliver; Niehle, Michael; Trampert, AchimWe studied the early stages of Gd2O3 epitaxy on Si(111) in real time by synchrotron-based, high-resolution X-ray diffraction and by reflection high-energy electron diffraction. A comparison between model calculations and the measured X-ray scattering, and the change of reflection high-energy electron diffraction patterns both indicate that the growth begins without forming a three-dimensional crystalline film. The cubic bixbyite structure of Gd2O3 appears only after a few monolayers of deposition.

- ItemSmall-angle X-ray scattering from GaN nanowires on Si(111): facet truncation rods, facet roughness and Porod's law(Oxford [u.a.] : Blackwell, 2021) Kaganer, Vladimir M.; Konovalov, Oleg V.; Fernández-Garrido, SergioSmall-angle X-ray scattering from GaN nanowires grown on Si(111) is measured in the grazing-incidence geometry and modelled by means of a Monte Carlo simulation that takes into account the orientational distribution of the faceted nanowires and the roughness of their side facets. It is found that the scattering intensity at large wavevectors does not follow Porod's law I(q) ∝ q-4. The intensity depends on the orientation of the side facets with respect to the incident X-ray beam. It is maximum when the scattering vector is directed along a facet normal, reminiscent of surface truncation rod scattering. At large wavevectors q, the scattering intensity is reduced by surface roughness. A root-mean-square roughness of 0.9 nm, which is the height of just 3-4 atomic steps per micrometre-long facet, already gives rise to a strong intensity reduction. open access.
- ItemX-ray diffraction from strongly bent crystals and spectroscopy of X-ray free-electron laser pulses(Oxford [u.a.] : Blackwell, 2020) Kaganer, Vladimir M.; Petrov, Ilia; Samoylova, LiubovThe use of strongly bent crystals in spectrometers for pulses of a hard X-ray free-electron laser is explored theoretically. Diffraction is calculated in both dynamical and kinematical theories. It is shown that diffraction can be treated kinematically when the bending radius is small compared with the critical radius given by the ratio of the Bragg-case extinction length for the actual reflection to the Darwin width of this reflection. As a result, the spectral resolution is limited by the crystal thickness, rather than the extinction length, and can become better than the resolution of a planar dynamically diffracting crystal. As an example, it is demonstrated that spectra of the 12 keV pulses can be resolved in the 440 reflection from a 20 µm-thick diamond crystal bent to a radius of 10 cm. open access.
