  • X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy (EXAFS and XANES);
  • X-ray Diffraction (single crystal, powder, anomalous scattering);
  • Small angle scattering;
  • X-ray Microscopy and micro-spectroscopy;
  • Photoemission (from valence and from core levels; angular, time and spin resolved);
  • IR spectroscopy;
  • Microscopy and spectromicroscopy;
  • Resonant spectroscopy and diffraction techniques;
  • Dichroism;
  • Inelastic X-ray scattering;
