Time Resolved Small Angle X-Ray Scattering
Accessory used to connect stopped flow devices to synchrotron beam lines.
Time-Resolved Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (TR-SAXS) has become a popular technique to characterize nanostructures.
The X-Ray observation head is engineered with a 60° opening to maximize the solid angle so both Small Angle (SAXS) and Wide Angle (WAXS) scattering applications can be covered. A standard Berger Ball mixer is built-in in the X-Ray head.
The X-Ray head is available with three sizes of capillary holder (OD 1.1, 1.5 and 2 mm). All holders can be fitted in the same observation head.
A special capillary holder with 90° windows is also available for simultaneous optical and X-Ray measurements. Depending on capillary geometry a flow rate up to 7-8 ml/s can be used.
The SFM can be fitted onto the synchrotron beamline or bench-top X-Ray station. If space is not available around the beam line the X-Ray head can be combined with an umbilical link. For applications where the user needs to simultaneously measure XAFS and absorbance along a longer light path, a customized TC-50 cuvette (5 mm light path) with thinner walls is available.
