Small Angle X-Ray Scattering Instrument

Small Angle X-Ray Scattering Instrument

X-Ray Diffraction and Scattering Facility

  • Manufacturer: Bruker
  • Model: NANOSTAR
  • Year: 2016
  • Building: 301
  • Room: 203

The SAXS instrument generates high intensity x-rays that are directed at a sample suspected of containing structures at a nanometre size scale. The scattered x-rays are collected on a two dimensional detector and provide researchers with valuable information on the size and arrangement of these structures.

  • Sample stage supportive of powder or liquid samples.
  • Proprietary software integrating hardware control and data reduction.
  • Two dimensional cross-coupled device detector for investigation of highly orientated samples.
  • A wide angular range is achieved with three detector positions as well as three sample positions.
