Novel opportunities are emerging at third-generation synchrotron x-ray facilities ushered in by their coherence upgrade as well as at x-ray free-electron-laser facilities worldwide. These sources afford researchers to go far beyond ‘average’ reciprocal-space investigations by x-ray diffraction, which has been a mainstay methodology of research on quantum materials. In this talk contemporary research efforts to exploit multitude of contrasts accessible via diffraction germinating a novel imaging modality called dark field x-ray microscopy (DFXM) [1] and its outlook at future sources (e.g., APS-U) are presented. DFXM technique provides real-space images of ‘mesoscale’ features [2-4] that give rise to deviations from an average order. In DFXM, a diffracted beam from an ordered material is used to form a two-dimensional full-field image of these features by passing it through an x-ray objective lens. Mesoscale information is encoded on a crystal Bragg peak, a super-lattice (e.g., due to charge, magnetic, or orbital order) peak, or an epitaxial-film peak, in the form of intensity contrasts, revealing an incisive real-space picture over many orders-of-magnitude in length scales. In this talk, some recent illustrative cases are reviewed along with state-of-the-art technical advances of this methodology. Examples include a role of local actors across a magneto-structural phase transition [2], a set of imaging studies of three dimensionally ordered charge-density waves in superconductors, a search for long-range modulations below a nematic transition, and an exploration of neomorphism in metal-insulator-transition based memristor devices. Finally, new directions to leverage increased coherence in DFXM studies are sketched.
