The morphology and distribution of self-assembled structures of adsorbates within mesopores
materials are poorly understood and largely unknown. In this article we extend the analysis method
used for interrelating the neutron scattering data with the nanoscale self-assemblies formed by
adsorbates in the pore space. The analysis approach enables identifying the relative diffuse and
Bragg scattering contributions in the case of metallic nanoparticles and surfactant micelles
adsorbed in the pore space. The extended neutrons scattering data analysis approach provides a
platform to characterize and investigate the effects of confinement on the soft-matter self-assembly
process.
