The application of resonant soft x-ray scattering to chemically heterogeneous soft condensed matter
materials is presented. Two structured styrene-acrylic polymer composite latex particles 230 nm
in diameter were utilized to delineate the potential utility of this technique. Angular scans at photon
energies corresponding to strong scattering contrast between specific chemical moieties made it
possible to infer the effective radii that correspond to the two polymer phases in the nanoparticles.
The results show that resonant soft x-ray scattering should be a powerful complementary tool to
neutron and hard x-ray scattering for the characterization of structured soft condensed matter
nanomaterials. 2006 American Institute of Physics. DOI: 10.1063/1.2356306
