The SAXS is here! We recently got support from the NSF-MRI program for the purchase of Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS) equipment. The equipment will serve the greater Research Triangle community and will be housed in Duke's Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF). Two, complementary instruments are on order: a slit-collimated (so called Kratky camera) from Anton Paar, and a point collimated instrument from SAXSlab. Due to the slit-collimation, the Anton Paar instrument has very high flux at the sample and will be primarily used for scattering from solutions. The point collimated system covers 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.
