Most of us are familiar with the use of x-rays in medicine to image bones and in the security control of baggage at airports. But x-rays also have a very prominent role in science to unravel the structure and dynamics of matter.  This talk will present an overview of several synchrotron based x-ray techniques, such as x-ray spectroscopy, scattering, lithography, microscopy and imaging, which address specific structure-related problems in chemistry, biology, materials science and nanotechnology.  Few selected own research examples will be presented in the context.  Finally, advanced and upcoming methods involving the next generation x-ray free electron laser (XFEL) will be discussed in brief. 

Note: The presentation is aimed for a general audience working/interested in any field of science.
