Manufacturers are continually creating products for daily usage. When it comes to the creation of consumer products, innovation is key. The consumer will find an item more enticing if it has a longer shelf life, higher performance, and cheaper production costs. High-performance characterization methods that enable researchers to visualize complicated nanostructured materials over all pertinent length scales are required for the development of new cosmetic or cleaning products. In addition to offering detailed knowledge on the rheology and stability of products, synchrotron X-rays also enable research of the body's tolerance to novel product formulations.
- Investigating the behavior of actual products in various test conditions
- Materials analysis in real in situ techniques that replicate industrial processing settings
- Using infrared spectroscopy to locate molecular groups and structures on the nanoscale and detect trace elements
- Improving consumer good by studying their microstructure
