Home Facilities Facility SAXS-WAXS Service

The SAXS-WAXS (Small and Wide Angle X Ray Scattering) service provides measurements with a variety of set ups for the determination of structural information of ordered and semiordered materials. The range of distances of interest falls in the nanoscale domain (0.2-100 nm). The materials comprise surfactant solutions and liquid crystals, mesoporous materials, microemulsions, proteins in solution, DNA in solution and any conceivable material with electronic discontinuities in the above mentioned range.
