Triangle Small Angle X-Ray Scattering Facility

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).

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
WAXS (wide angle X-ray
and GISAXS (grazing incidence X-ray scattering) measurements.
