SAXS

We have the possibility to use various X-ray technologies in the different projects but foremost we use SAXS (Small Angle X-ray Scattering) and XRPD (X-ray powder diffraction).

The X-ray scattering at low angles detected with SAXS reveals information on distances on the larger (!) nanometer scale and thus SAXS is used to study macro-structures such as the swelling of a lamellar liquid crystal or identification of phase transitions between different liquid crystalline morphologies.

SAXS is a fundamental technique in our research and development projects and we are privileged to have the possibility to utilize state-of the art instrumentation, even when we need a synchrotron source for our measurements there is one just next door… at the MAX IV laboratory.
