2Details of Instrument:


Small Angle X-ray Scattering or SAXS is a technique where the elastic scattering of X-rays (wavelength 0.2 nm) by a sample which has inhomogeneities in the nm-range, is recorded at very low angles (typically 0.1 - 10°). This angular range contains information about the shape and size of macromolecules, characteristic distances of partially ordered materials, pore sizes, and other data. SAXS is capable of delivering structural information of macromolecules between 5 and 25 nm, of repeat distances in partially ordered systems of up to 150 nm.


The incoming X-ray beam interacts with the electrons of all atoms in the macromolecule, resulting in a so-called “scattering pattern” (= different X-ray intensities at different scattering angles), which is characteristic for the particle structure, i.e. size, shape and internal structure.

What SAXS offer

The comprehensive selection of versatile sample stages covers all your applications, from temperature-controlled studies to in-situ tensile tests to structural studies under controlled temperature, humidity or pressure.
