• In-situ x-ray scattering studies of Ag nano-structures 

    Chen, Yiyao (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)
    When metals are synthesized on the nanoscale, new physics can arise in the growth process as quantum confinement of the conduction electrons, known as quantum size effects, can lead to preferred heights of metallic nanoscale ...
  • X-ray diffraction studies on the Pb/Si(111) system 

    Gramlich, Michael W.R. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    This dissertation investigates the structure of the Pb wetting layer on the Si(111)7x7 using X-ray diffraction techniques. It was found that the wetting layer shows a surprising kinetic behavior within the structure over ...
