Triangle Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS) Update
In an effort, spearheaded by Triangle MRSEC, we received support through the NSF-MRI program for the purchase of Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS) instrumentation. The state-of-the-art instruments will serve the greater Research Triangle community for research and education, and will be housed in Duke’s Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF).
Two, complementary instruments are on order: a slit-collimated SAXSess MC2 from Anton Paar, and a point collimated GANESHA 300XL+ from SAXSlab. The SAXSess MC2 instrument has very high flux at the sample and will be used for scattering from solutions. The GANESHA 300XL+ is fully automated to cover a broad q-range, and will be used for SAXS, MAXS (medium angle X-ray scattering), WAXS (wide angle X-ray scattering), and GISAXS (grazing incidence X-ray scattering) measurements.
