The dramatic improvements in synchrotron light sources across the world imply tremendous opportunities for interface science. In this Perspective, we describe a variety of current scattering and spectroscopic techniques with an eye toward how these will evolve, particularly with the advent of diffraction-limited sources. We also note the importance of in situ and operando methods for both understanding interface creation and interface evolution in different environments. As interfaces are often…
