With the advent of third-generation synchrotron sources and the development of light source techniques, X-ray scattering techniques have become feasible, leading to new approaches for studying the structures of disordered materials in a quantitative manner. We introduce a dedicated diffractometer for high-energy total X-ray scattering measurement and a newly developed anomalous X-ray spectrometer at SPring-8. As advanced methodologies for the measurement of liquids, we now offer three state-of-art levitation instruments for aerodynamic levitation, electrostatic levitation, and acoustic levitation at the SPring-8 beamlines, covering a wide temperature range of-40-3000 °C. Furthermore, scientific investigations of glasses, liquids, and amorphous materials reported in the last five years at SPring-8 are reviewed.
