Non-coplanar GID (Grazing Incidence Diffraction) emerged in the early 1990s as a technique for investigating the near-surface region of samples (ten or fewer nm beneath the air-sample interface).


It exploits the high intensity of the total external reflection condition while simultaneously Bragg-diffracting from planes that are nearly perpendicular to the sample surface.
