Interstellar (IS) dust grains are an integral part of IS evolution in galaxies, and our knowledge of their properties has primarily derived from observations of the UV/optical extinction, infrared emission, and polarization from grains. However, we can also learn about grains by studying the X-ray halos seen around absorbed X-ray sources that are created by small-angle X-ray scattering in dust grains along the line of sight. X-ray halos are strongly affected by the size distribution of the grains, and to a lesser extent their position, composition, and shape.
