Advances in nanotechnology and materials science have led to an array of novel nanomaterials and thin films with a variety of potential applications. Characterisation of the dimensions, structure and chemical composition of these nanomaterials is central for optimising their functional performance. Towards this goal, the EU-funded NanoQI project aims to advance X-ray characterisation techniques such as X-ray diffraction analysis and X-ray reflectometry for industrial access. Although widely employed in research, technical limitations hamper the use of these techniques in industrial material development and production assessment processes. The NanoQI technology’s capacity for real-time evaluation of nanomaterial properties in industrial applications will improve reproducibility and yield and upscale nanomaterial production.
