Small/Wide Angle X-Ray Scattering Apparatus [SAXS - WAXS]

X-ray diffraction with the D8 FOCUS can identify and quantify the different phases inside a powder sample. The same data also provides information on the crystallite size and the microstrain.

A variety of sample environments are available for solids and liquids, including temperature control units and flow through capillary designs. The instruments are capable of being run in various separate configurations which can be optimised for individual experiments.

SAXS is used to study any materials with structure of the length scale 1-100nm. The performance of many advanced materials is crucially dependent on nanostructure, and SAXS can be used to study this. It can be used for study of density variations, colloidal sizes, particles sizes, porosity, domain sizes, orientation, phase identification, the list is endless. With research being directed more towards nano-sized science, SAXS is becoming a widely used tool
