A major challenge in modern materials science is characterizing of processes at ultrasmall and ultrafast scales. Nanoscale phenomena are essential in manipulating energy (ionic systems), processing information (electronic systems), and controlling light (photonics). X-rays are excellent probes of matter and developments of an x-ray microscope date back to Röntgen, who attempted to focus x-rays more than a century ago. However, it was not until the past decade that x-ray microscopy finally matured combining superb spatial (sub-100 nm) and temporal (sub-1 ps) resolution.
