Abstract

The Pair Distribution Function technique based upon X-ray diffraction data is a powerful tool to unveil disorder on the nanometric scale, which is however element insensi-tive. To overcome this problem, Differential Pair Distribution Functions (DPDF) can be obtained by exploiting the anomalous dispersion of X-rays near the absorption edge of a certain element. In this paper the DPDF method is briefly reviewed and applied to the case of gadolinium doped ceria electrolytes. XRPD data have been collected at the Ce-K edge on the ID31 beamline of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF). The validity of this approach to extract chemical specific information is also briefly discussed.
