The significant challenges posed by the increasing complexity of nanostructured surfaces used in technological applications include the characterization of such surfaces. The importance of complex and multidimensional nanostructures consisting of several materials is particularly noticeable in the semiconductor industry. At PTB's laboratory at the BESSY II electron storage ring, synchrotron...
