Small-Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS)

Bruker Nanostar-U

SAXS yields information such as particle sizes and size distributions from 1 to 100 nm, shape and orientation distributions in liquid, powders and bulk samples.

Main Technical Features

  • Turbo (rotating anode) x-ray source
  • Full-length configuration for high resolution
  • HI-STAR detector: a virtually noise-free, real-time 2-d detector with photon counting ability
  • Image plate for simultaneous SAXS/WAXS measurements
  • Peltier sample holder for temperature control: -30 to +120 C
  • Motorized X-Y stage for sample changing and x-ray nanography (130 x 80 mm motion; 10 um resolution)
Rates & Fees: 

Rates are hourly and are subject to change without further notice.
