The tremendous grow of synchrotron radiation, where emitted photons are processed by sophisticated optics elements making the radiation useful for several applications in a wide range of energy, is originated in its diversity for powerful application for basic and applied research and technology. The overwhelming application of this kind of radiation to science and technology at the nanoscale means that the scene is set for this key subject to impact on the development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. In particular, X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopies are being successfully applied to studies of nanostructured materials, their genesis, characteristics, and properties under different conditions. In this chapter we will provide fundamental information about apparatus and techniques and their application on a diverse set of basic properties of nanostructures.
