Xeuss 2.0 HR SAXS/WAXS

    Equipment/facility: Equipment

      Description

      The instrument will be used to expand the characterization capabilities of the lab, in particular for grazing incidence applications (GISAXS/GIWAXS), 2D WAXS measurements and simultaneous SAXS/WAXS measurements during dynamic studies, using shear or temperature cells. Such features will be especially useful for the study of organo-photovoltaic thin film structural characterization, polymer crystallization, block copolymer composites, ionic and conjugated polymers, rheo-SAXS, bio-synthetic hybrid materials and ultimately biological samples in solutions.
